Once you get into Oxford there are quite a few bus routes offered through Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA). With many stops dotting the Oxford map, including the Miami University campus, you’ll be able to jump on and off the bus all throughout town.
The BCRTA lists all available routes in Oxford on their page here. Click on the route name to learn more about that route’s schedule and stop locations.
*Please note-Effective January 1, 2021 all BCRTA and MTS fixed route and ADA trip fares are FREE.
As a visitor you can expect to just pay $2 per ride on Oxford/Miami University routes (unless you’re elderly, disabled, or a Medicare cardholder, which brings your fare down to $1/ride). Passengers must pay fare with either correct change or a ticket or pass at the time of boarding. You can order tickets and passes here. Please note drivers do not carry cash and cannot make change. If you’re riding with a Miami student, they’ll be able to ride for free with their Miami Student ID.

With the BuzTracker app you can watch buses move around your chosen route in real time. It’s a helpful tool if you want to see exactly where the bus is in regards to your location so you can better time its arrival. If you’ve ever run to a bus stop only to watch the bus pull away without you, you’ll know how valuable this app is.
Plus, there’s just something fun about watching the teeny buses drive around the map.
