Connecting People With Places

FREE* Bus Travel

ABILITY operate on-demand FREE bus services throughout Northamptonshire and North Oxfordshire. Free of charge to holders of a concessionary bus pass.

Since 2018 our fleet of luxury minibuses have been connecting people with places, linking hamlets, villages and market towns throughout the county.

Our aim is to ensure anyone living in an isolated rural area has reliable access to essential services. We offer weekly buses into the main shopping areas of Northampton, Towcester, Brackley, Bicester and Banbury.

All services operate on a flexible route, meaning we can pick you up closer to home, and drop you off where you need to be – meeting individual needs.
