finding transportation back to Heathrow

I am planning atrip to London and Oxford in June. Flying in and out of Heathrow from JFK. London is the first half, Oxford the second. However, I have found that National Express only has one coach to Heathrow/day, and it will not work with my departure options. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

There is a direct bus service - the X70 - between Oxford & Heathrow which runs every 20 minutes or so

The X70 - also known as The Airline - runs very frequently from Oxford and I take it to/from Heathrow every time I travel. It's reliable, comfortable, and convenient. Schedules can be found on their website: http://www.oxfordbus.co.uk/heathrow.html

If you're looking for things to do in Oxford take a look at Oxford City Guide (www.oxfordcityguide.com) - it has sightseeing info as well as events and theatre schedules.

have a great trip!

HI NYNY; we used to live in Oxford; as said the bus is frequent and quite cheap. It does go along the M motorway which can be busy so allow reasonable time. The "bus" is what we call a "coach" and has good seating.
