Departure Bus Station: Manchester to Oxford buses will leave from Manchester Coach Station. The Coach Station is situated in central Manchester, around 200 meters from Manchester Piccadilly Station (the city's premier transport hub). Travelers can catch trams or overground rail services to Piccadilly, then walk to their coaches, but taxis from most central locations will be the fastest way to reach the Coach Station. The Number 1 bus is another option (alight at Chorlton Street), while anyone coming from Manchester International Airport should take National Express coaches straight to the Coach Station.
Arrival Bus Station: When travelers make the trip from Manchester to Oxford, buses will arrive at Oxford's Gloucester Green Bus Station. Gloucester Green is centrally located, just south of the Ashmolean Museum, north of the Castle, and west of most of the city's historic colleges. Walking is a good route to most nearby attractions, but buses to the city center stop at George Street. The 14A runs straight into the town center, as does the S3 Gold service. If travelers need to get to Oxford Rail Station for onward travel, they need to head west. It's a 15 minute walk, or a 5 minute bus ride.
