On the screen at the next shelter it simply said "Please Refer to Timetable" : only there wasn't one, of course!
Once upon a simpler time, the 13 ran between Oxford and John Radcliffe Hospital via Marston and the Northway Estate. And it still does - every 20 minutes. And once upon the same time ...
But what about service 23? Should this really be part of the X3 timetable? It doesn't run via Marston; it doesn't run via Northway. It only goes as far as Redbridge Prak and Ride on the southern edge of the City.
In conclusion, then, bus services in and around Abingdon are excellent for a town of its size and appear to work well. Infomation is readily available at the TiC (if the operators can be bothered to supply it!) but not at the stops; where the sort of facts a visitor might need are simply not evident.
And Abingdon desperately needs a bus map. For a small fee, fbb will draw one!
And don't trust the "unreal time" screens.
