There are two types of tickets on the Oxford Tube: single and return. A single ticket is enough time for one person to travel once around the city. The first stop the driver makes is usually the last stop he or she will make, and vice versa. There are five different stops on the Oxford Tube. The driver will stop at each one to let passengers off or on. Return tickets are good for two people to travel around the city in the same time period. The first stop the driver makes is the same as for a single ticket, but then they will make another trip through the city center.
The price of tickets varies depending on when you buy them. The earlier you book, the cheaper they are. There are several different discounts available including student fares, senior citizen fares, family fares, and more.

This service is provided by the company that runs the buses outside normal bus hours, so there's no standard bus stop number for it. Instead, the tube station at Lewknor Road is signed as "Oxford Tube".
There are also two routes that don't go through Camden Town that we know about: X1 and X2. Route X1 runs from Oxford Circus to Headington Hill via Jericho's Way, Banbury Road, Corinne Street, Abingdon Road, and Castle Street.

The Oxford Tube now provides two express lines each day (Monday through Friday) from Thornhill to Baker Street, before continuing to Marble Arch and Victoria. The all-stations service takes about 30 minutes.
The tube map shows three branches: red to Abbey Road; green to Camden Town; blue to Oxford Circus. However, only the branch to Baker Street operates as an actual tube station with platforms, while the other two are access points from where you can transfer to other buses or taxis.
There is no longer any tube service between Baker Street and Thorney Hill stations, but there are still connections to Kew Gardens/Waterloo and Richmond from these locations. A special connection shuttle runs between Baker Street and Waterloo every 10 minutes during peak hours only.
Baker Street is also the terminus for the Jubilee line. This service continues past Baker Street to Finsbury Park and then on to Stanmore and High Barnet. The Jubilee line is usually considered to be a separate entity to the Oxford Tube, although it shares some of its routes and often runs together with the same signs and announcements being made over the public address systems.
