Pear Tree Park and Ride, Oxford – All You Need to Know – 2022

So you are visiting Oxford for the day and arriving from the Northside of the United Kingdom? Which of the five Park and Ride services that Oxford offer is best for you to use? The answer is that Pear Tree Park and Ride is slightly better than the two other Park and Rides on the northside of Oxford.

This is simply because the other is the Oxford Parkway park and ride and Pear Tree is better just because it is 2.2 miles closer to Oxford city centre, and Pear Tree is the park and ride I will be talking about in this post.

Pear Tree Park and Ride, Oxford – 2022

The main cause for confusion with a lot of the Oxfords park and rides is that Although it is named as one service, PARK n RRIDE, you have to pay twice, first to PARK, then again to RIDE the bus into Oxford. But with that in mind, your experience will be a smoother one.

Pear Tree Park and Ride – Directions

Coming southbound down to Oxford on the A34 motorway, keep an eye out for Peartree interchange, come off at that junction and take the second turning onto the A44. The Peartree park and ride is the first turning after you come onto the A44.

If you are coming from the northwest south on the A44 past Chipping Norton and Woodstock, Keep on the A44 Oxford Street, over the Bladon Roundabout onto Woodstock Road, still the A44 and follow till you get to Pear tree roundabout.

At Pear tree roundabout take the second turning onto the A44, (just past the Peartree services)

Once on A44, Pear tree park and ride car park is the first exit on the left. Remember to pay for your parking ticket.
