Parking overnight at pear tree park and ride

Is it safe to park overnight at Pear Tree park and ride? Also the last bus back from Oxford appears to be just befor 7pm on a Sunday evening. Is this correct?

There is one later bus on a Sunday evening - at 1955. It's not a P&R bus, but the S3 to Woodstock, and stops opposite the P&R on the main road. And there are frequent buses that leave you to walk the last 15 minutes to the P&R - not recommended

As to safety - pass. It's supposedly a secure park. Do look carefully at the instructions for paying for parking - at certain times of day it can only be done by mobile phone.

Thanks dzug

Do you know how much it costs to park ? I assume it's a Ringo type of pay scheme as in Gloucester Green?

oxford.gov.uk/PageRender/decTS/Park_and_Ride… may help - assuming it's up to date which is not always the case with these sites.

I've not seen any press reports lately that indicate that there's a particular problem at this site - however that's not a guarantee of safety. As to walking to the site I suspect the reason why Dzug doesn't recommend you walk the last 15 mins is simply because it's alongside a busy dual carriageway when it could be night time. That being said it is lit - and there's a pathway on one side of the road.
