Jane Marshall, General Manager of City Sightseeing Oxford, said: “We’re proud at the Oxford Bus Company to be part of the City Sightseeing worldwide network of operators. Open-top bus tours are a fantastic value for money way to visit a city and see the sights. It was an honour to visit the place where City Sightseeing originated and to be awarded with a special certificate for the Oxford tour’s contribution to the network.”

Luke Marion, Finance and Commercial Director at the Oxford Bus Company, said: “City Sightseeing has been providing ideal ways for tourists to enjoy their visits to great cities like Oxford around the world for two decades, and the brand has been a fantastic success in the tourism industry, which generates a large positive benefit to our city’s economy. It was fantastic to share the stage with other bus operators from cities including Edinburgh, Glasgow and Seville and to learn about some of the initiatives they’ve been trying in their own cities.

Thanks to funding secured by Oxford City Council, five City Sightseeing buses in the city are to be converted to electric vehicles. “We’ve invested in improving the service here in Oxford and are entering a very exciting time for Oxford City Sightseeing as we covert our first vehicle to electric power, as part of our on-going strategy to be as environmentally friendly as possible,” said Luke.
