Travelling around Oxford is very easy and the compact city means that you can easily get around on foot or by public transport as there are regular local bus services around the city. As a student it can be difficult to run a car as Oxford is often congested and so travelling around is usually easier and more time effective by other means. Furthermore, the Oxford Tube and Oxford Express provide excellent transport links at affordable student prices! The two services travel to a number of locations across London for a return price of fifteen pounds.
