From my experience driving there, Oxford generally hates anything with more than 2 wheels.

I've spent quite a bit of time there over years and must admit that I haven't found it too bad. Certainly no worse than other cities of a similar size/age.

I found the road layout a little strange in the city boundaries. Travelling East - West, it seemed to be like a dogs hind leg.
Coming in to the city (Botley Road area), from either of the other directions, seemed pretty straight forward.

'Little and Often' Sprinters to be replaced by Solos in June

http://www.route-one.net/articles/Operat...printers/c

The Sprinters are to be cascaded to other Stagecoach divisions for use on low-usage routes that are to be confirmed.

Notice mention of a 35% increase in usage since the Sprinters started - of the two original routes, the C will remain every 10 minutes while the B is reduced from every 10 to every 12 minutes. The E/G are merged into out-of-town services while the Dart-worked A also joins the brand using Solos.
