Advice for train users ahead of Oxford United’s Wembley final


A queuing system will also be in place at some stations

Train users heading to Wembley on Saturday to see Oxford United in the League 1 promotion playoff final are being advised to allow extra time for their journeys.

There’s just two days to go until the U’s face Bolton Wanderers in the final with a place in the Championship at stake.

Two trains per hour will be heading from Banbury to Wembley Stadium, the majority of which are direct services.

For commuters heading to the game from other Oxfordshire stations Chiltern Railways will be running an enhanced timetable.   High-capacity train services will operate between Oxford Parkway, Bicester Village and Wembley Stadium.   Additional and longer trains will be running both pre and post-match.

No Chiltern Railways trains will serve Oxford station for the entire day.

Due to the expected number of passengers, a queueing system will be in place at Oxford Parkway, Bicester Village and Bicester North prior to the match to ensure trains are boarded efficiently and safely.   Some customers may not be able to board their preferred train and are encouraged to arrive at the station in good time.

A queuing system will also be in place at Wembley Stadium after the match.

A spokesperson for Chiltern Railways said: “[We] would like to wish The U’s the very best of luck in their Play-Off Final.”
