Oxford University Transit relocating Downtown Square stop

In an effort to make several transportation hubs around Oxford, Oxford University Transit is relocating one of its major stops.

The Downtown Square stop is moving from its current location east of the Lafayette County Courthouse to the downtown parking garage, beginning May 4.

The new stop will be behind the parking garage in the back parking lot. A new shelter will be installed at the new stop, along with an estimated time of arrival (ETA) sign to track the arrival times of OUT buses.

“We are excited about this new stop and making the downtown parking garage the main hub of transportation,” said OUT general manager Donna Zampella. “Oxford University Transit looks to forward to continue to serve the Oxford and University Community.”

The transit service will continue to offer its “Free Rides” program during the COVID-19 crisis. The buses are cleaned and sanitized six days a week.

Riders are still encouraged to wear a mask or facial covering when using OUT, as per the instructions of the Oxford Board of Aldermen and Mayor Robyn Tannehill.

“Our drivers and staff have continued to work each day on the front lines to make sure the Oxford and University Community was able to grocery stores, doctor appointments and to work,” Zampella said.
