Rebecca said: “I am so pleased to win! The Oxford Tube is a great service that has been invaluable to me since I moved Oxford. I live in Kent and travel every two weeks to see my family. I also travel to London a few times a month to see friends from home as it’s an easy place to meet. The year’s free pass will really help with my costs.”

At the University’s Fresher’s Fair, students at Brookes and Oxford University were offered £5 return vouchers to travel on the Oxford Tube. Upon use of the voucher, students could fill in their email address to be entered into the prize draw to win a year’s free travel. Over 350 entries were handed to Oxford Tube drivers and the winning ticket was picked at random.

Rob Hough Oxford Tube Operations Manager, said: “We’re delighted that Rebecca will be able to use the prize to travel between home and her place of study. And, importantly, also help to lessen the student costs during her studies. We look forward to seeing Rebecca on board soon!”
