Travelling from Heathrow/London
There is no direct train service from Heathrow to Oxford so the easiest and cheapest way to get to Oxford from Heathrow airport by bus takes between 80 and 100 minutes and at time of writing cost GB£26. There are two bus companies operating the route National Express and "The Airline" run by Oxford Bus Company . The buses run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and at peak times every 30 minutes. They stop at Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, 3 (at the Central bus station bay 14a) and also on the ground floor at Terminal 5 (Bay 9). The buses do NOT stop at Terminal 4.
If you are arriving at Heathrow Terminal 4 you need to take the underground Heathrow Express train (free service between terminals) or the overground shuttle bus to the other terminals to catch the bus.
