Shipston Link provides regular, volunteer run, community bus services from many of the surrounding villages into Shipston Town Square & the Medical Centre, most days of the week, together with regular trips from Shipston and the surrounding villages to Banbury, Moreton-in-Marsh & Chipping Norton. We also run a Saturday service from Whichford, Cherington, Stourton, Brailes, Shipston and Ilmington to Stratford.

Shipston Link in normal times also offers a Private Hire service.


With some reluctance, but after careful debate, and in the belief that it is the right thing to do in the current Covid-19 situation, we have decided that we should postpone until further notice our planned resumption of services.

With the whole of England in lockdown, the wellbeing of both our passengers and our drivers has to be the main priority, and exposing our passengers, and our volunteer drivers, to unnecessary risk at this point does not feel like the right thing to do.

On the positive side, we have now been through most of the planning and preparation needed for a Covid secure re-start, and we can remain ready to go at relatively short notice.

Up-to-date information will continue to be available from this website as well as ‘TraveLine’ on 0871 200 2233. 

With plenty of time for stress-free shopping, or a coffee and a chat, with no worries about driving or the parking. Our friendly, knowledgeable drivers can take care of everything for you.

So if it’s Shipston Town Square for you, or Banbury on Thursdays [town centre and Morrisons], Moreton-in-Marsh on Tuesdays [The new Co-Op, really close to the famous open-air Market] , Chipping Norton on Wednesdays, or Stratford [Town Centre and Tesco’s] on Saturdays, we are just what you have been looking for. We cover the places where the bigger bus companies now rarely visit, it at all, including Halford, Ilmington, Darlingscott, Tysoe, Whatcote, Honington, Cherington, Burmington, Stretton-on-Fosse, Todenham, Great & Little Wolford, Long Compton, Whichford, Stourton, Cherington, Sutton-under-Brailes and Brailes.
We accept Bus Passes, as well as fare paying passengers, on all our Services.
