Oxford Park & Ride Car Parks

Please does anyone have a rough idea of what time the following park and rides are full during the week? I am thinking about commuting into Oxford and would probably use the following:

Water Eaton

Pear Tree

Thornhill

I note that when I usually go past Thornhill during the day its always fully booked up. Just wondering if anyone has experiences of them always being full up. I would guess I would be arriving around 8am.

I'd try Pear Tree Car Park on the northern edge, easily reached by taking the Northern Bypass (A40), then up Woodstock Rd about 3/4 mile. A bus runs every 10 minutes. And that probably isn't as full as Thornhill, which has a lot of people parking there to take a bus to London. For exact location and bus times, look at the Oxford Bus company web page; I think it's Bus 300.

Or you can park in the neighbourhood off Banbury Road near the A40 and take a 2A, 2B, 2C or 2D bus (which -- combined -- run every 5 minutes) into Oxford.

Certainly Thornhill is full pretty much all the time. I park there at 5.30 AM weekdays and it's about half full already by then,!

Redbridge never seems to get completely full. Possibly because its to the south of the city?

Unfortunately Redbridge is the opposite side of town for me. Thanks for the suggestions looks like it will be Pear Tree or Water Eaton. :-)
