About Oxford Parkway Park & Ride

With approximately 758 spaces, Oxford Parkway Park & Ride is located at Oxford Parkway Station to the north of the city.

Oxford Parkway Park & Ride can be accessed from the A40 (from Witney and Cheltenham), A4260 (from Kidlington), A34 (from Banbury, Bicester and Northampton) and the M40.

Please be aware that there are two separate car parks operating very close to each other at Oxford Parkway. The car park closer to the train station is managed by APCOA Parking on behalf of Chiltern Railways.
