This PickMeUp service is an interesting new development in Oxford... Wonder how it would work in other areas?

Quote from: Oxford Bus Co
Introducing a new service... PickMeUp!
PickMeUp is simple to book... with you in around 10 minutes... and cheaper than a taxi!

Launching on 25th June 2018!

Here at the Oxford Bus Company, we provide lots of bus options to help passengers travel into the City Centre from all around Oxfordshire.  While this is useful, some of our customers told us you also need to travel around the Ring Road or to other locations that could be reached more directly without having to change buses in the City.  We’ve listened to your feedback and we’re launching PickMeUp.

PickMeUp is an on-demand ride-sharing minibus service. It will pick you up from a ‘virtual bus stop’ within a short walkable distance of where you are. The intelligent software works out the best way to take you and our other passengers to your chosen destinations. Simply register your credit or debit card, or pay via PayPal and we’ll be with you in around 10 minutes*. You can think of it like a car pool, only bigger - and you never have to drive yourself! It’s cheaper than a taxi and comes whenever you want it.

For a limited period, you can travel anywhere within the travel zone for only £2.50 per journey!
