Public Car Parking in Henley on Thames

The Henley HandyBus helps people to get out and about, to meet their friends and to go shopping locally and twice each month to Reading. It is for people who do not have transport, those with mobility difficulties as well as for local organisations.
The bus will collect you from your home and take you to various places in Henley on a daily basis. The HandyBus carries wheelchairs and the drivers will help with heavy shopping bags and trolleys.
Each day the bus has its regular duties which include shopping at Tesco and Waitrose. Most weekdays it takes passengers to the Over 60s Social Club in the town centre. The bus is also available for outings in the evenings and at weekends.
See the website, or call or email for more details.
New Henley Handybus Scheme
A weekly shopping bus service replacing the now defunct Oxfordshire Dial-a-Ride, this service is a different one – but confusingly has chosen the same name – to the old Henley and District Handibus Scheme, that renamed itself to Henley Handybus a year or so ago and is listed above.
This new scheme serves the villages of Bix, Nettlebed, Park Corner, Cookley Green, Howe Hill, Pishill, Stonor and the Assendons, and is a door-to-door service picking up those without access to public or private transport and taking them to Tesco or Waitrose in Henley and then bringing them home. There is no charge for tickets but a bus pass would be useful if you have one.
Runs at 9.30 am on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday each month, returning by 1 pm. The OCC Comet runs on the other weeks at 10.30 am on Thursdays, returning by 2 pm.
The Oxfordshire Comet
A bookable transport service from Oxfordshire County Council for those who can’t access suitable public transport to allow them to make the journeys they want.
The Oxfordshire Comet can be booked for any type of trip. Whether it’s to meet friends in town, travel across the county, attend an appointment or pop to the shops. The service is available 10.15 am – 2.30 pm Monday to Friday (not Bank Holidays). More details on their website.
Click here to book – it’s very easy with a pre-paid account that can be set up on the phone.
More news about the launch of the Comet here.
OCC has discontinued this service due to budget cuts.
