Bus and coach boarding points...

Both operators start their services at Gloucester Green bus station in Oxford and terminate at Victoria Coach Station in London. Comparing one carrier to another, I can say that their routes are similar. However, if I have to be more precise the Oxford Tube tends to make more stops in general. In London this operator stops at Shepherd’s Bush, Notting Hill Gate, Marble Arch before getting to Victoria.
The Oxford Bus Company’s X90 goes via Queens Lane - City Centre, St Clements, Oxford Brookes University - Gipsy Lane, Headington Shops, Green Road Roundabout, Thornhill, direct to London’s Hillingdon, Baker Street, Marble Arch and Victoria Coach Station.
