The Stagecoach West-operated Oxford Tube coach service that provides a 24/7 service between Oxford and London has gained an even more colourful addition to its already brightly-liveried fleet. Recent fleet changes have meant that two of the Van Hool TDX27 Astromegas that were recently cascaded to Scotland (50272/4) have returned to Oxford for further use due to the increased peak vehicle requirement, now Monday to Friday express journeys via Baker Street have returned.

The coaches were still carrying Oxford Tube livery, but with Stagecoach branding applied instead. 50274 had the Oxford Tube branding re-applied, but this left 50272 still bare, which gave Helen Farrant, Deputy Controller at Oxford Tube, an idea to fit the remaining coach with colourful new vinyls: “As a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community, I thought it would be great if we could add the Pride flag onto our Oxford Tube coach to bring people joy and celebrate the community,” she said.
