  • PickMeUp!

    Your on-demand ride-sharing travel service is simple to book and with you in around 15 minutes.

Here at the Oxford Bus Company, we provide lots of bus options to help passengers travel into the City Centre from all around Oxfordshire.  While this is useful, some of our customers told us you also need to travel around the Ring Road or to other locations that could be reached more directly without having to change buses in the City.  We’ve listened to your feedback and we’ve launched PickMeUp.

PickMeUp is an on-demand ride-sharing minibus service. Download the app and tell us where you want your journey to begin. We'll pick you up from a ‘virtual bus stop’ within a short walkable distance of where you are. The intelligent software works out the best way to take you and our other passengers to your chosen destinations. Simply register your credit or debit card, or pay via PayPal and we’ll be with you in around 15 minutes. You can think of it like a car pool, only bigger - and you never have to drive yourself! It’s good value and comes whenever you want it.
