Basic green space unfortunately bordered on all sides by moderately-busy roads, giving the area the feel of a traffic island. Trees are decorated each Christmas, and cycle racks are available, but no other amenities to speak of. More a passing-through place than anything else.
No shelter or seating, but this is principally a “dropping-off” point for passengers coming from Oxford and so that’s fine. Bus stop is in layby to mitigate disruption to other traffic.
Shelter, but no seating. No digital display board, and it could really benefit from one. Bus stopping area is a layby in order to reduce impact on traffic. Rubbish bin, but no recycling facilities.
Convenient dropping-off point for buses from Oxford. No shelter or seating, but for most people this is a disembarking point anyway. Recycling and waste bins nearby.
Somewhat awkwardly-placed bus stop: already-narrow footpath on this side of the road ends just a little to the South-West of this bus stop, and there are few convenient crossing points.
Shelter, but no seating. Digital display board showing next up-to-three buses due, with reasonable accuracy. Recycling bins adjacent, but you’ll need to cross the road for a non-recyclable waste bin.
Shelter, but no seating. No digital display board (go around the corner to Yarnton Road if you want to know how soon your bus is coming). Note that coming from Oxford the 2A takes a circuitous route to get to this end of Grovelands: you’re usually faster to catch a 2, 2B or 2C even if you have to wait longer for it.
Ever wonder what happens to those bikes which get abandoned locked to University bike racks? These guys happen to them. I’m sure they do other useful things, too, but clearing up precious bike storage space is what wins my love.
Check carefully before you travel: the 11 (formerly T1) doesn’t usually turn around on Broad Street at all but instead terminates on St. Aldates! This bus stop is not clearly marked, when it’s in use at all.
