Hi there

I'm thinking of moving out of London to commute. I want to be sure I can get a seat on the train. Is Banbury a safe bet for this? I travel between 7 and 8

Alternatively, what about Oxford Parkway?

Any other suggestions appreciated. I don't want to spend more than 1hr and 1/4 on the train

As of 6 months ago (when I stopped commuting) I could always get a seat at Banbury. It is the last stop where you can guarantee it - at Bicester it's about 50/50. The fast train which is 7.10 I think, takes an hour.
It's expensive but very good and reliable with free, strong wifi which works about 80-90% of the time, better than Virgin.
Have not commuted from Oxford.
