114 bus will end operation from Saturday 22nd July

I am not sure how many were aware of this, but the 114, which has been running a very reduced service over the last year, is about to end completely in a couple of days time.

More info can be found here: https://www.thames-travel.co.uk/news-service-updates/changes-july-2017/

Below is a quote from the thames travel website on this though:

“Thames Travel has served the communities of South Oxfordshire for almost 20 years. For the most part, this has been through strong partnership with Oxfordshire County Council and its provision of subsidies to routes which otherwise would not be commercially viable. After the withdrawal of these subsidies in July 2016 we took a considerable risk with many services, amending them to improve efficiency in the hope of maintaining them. Unfortunately after nearly a year, some of these services are still operating at a substantial loss which we regrettably cannot continue to absorb.”
