Getting Around Town
Oxford is a very walkable location in terms of getting around. However, Oxford does provide alternative modes of transportations to help people get around town. Our services include busses, car rentals and Uber/Lyft, and scooters.
Traveling By Bus
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.
(And while we, of course, want you to stay in Oxford, there are two route options to help you commute into and out of town: R2 and R3.)
If you want to scoot around Oxford, you're in luck. We have BIRD scooters aplenty. Scooters are great for short distance rides, which makes them perfect for Oxford. We’re a small town so your average scooter ride from one location to another is only going to take anywhere from eight to ten minutes long and cost you around $3.
- Wear a helmet.
- Keep both hands on the handlebars at all times. (Please do not text and ride, seriously.)
- Park the scooters near bike locks on campus or in their designated parking spots uptown.
- “Lock” your scooter (using the app) when you’re done riding it. If you leave it unlocked, someone else can hop on and ride it on your dime.
- Have fun!
- Do not:
- Ride the scooters on the sidewalks when you’re uptown. Stick to the streets.
- Ride the scooters across intersections. Instead, dismount and walk the scooter across.
- Leave the scooters in the middle of sidewalks, especially since this creates an obstacle that people in wheelchairs need to move around. Let’s keep our sidewalks open for everyone to move freely on.
- Ride with two people to one scooter. There’s just not enough foot room to safely do this. Limit your ride to one person per scooter.
