Location: At the end of Station Approach
Company on opening: Buckinghamshire Railway
Notes: Bicester was the most important station on the Bletchley line. The main buildings were located on the up side of the line with a small timber shelter on the down side. A goods shed, horse dock, a number of small wagon turntables and a 54 ton crane were all sited on the up side. The station was opened as Bicester and was renamed Bicester London Road in Mar 1954. Bicester London Road Station closed on 30 Dec 1967 and was reopened on 15 May 1989. The west bound platform has been demolished. The east bound platform remains in use although the station buildings have been demolished with some remnants of the wall facing on to the platform remaining.

In February 2014, the line between Bicester Town and Oxford was closed, for upgrading as part of a new line between Oxford and London Marylebone.
Services on the line from a new station at Oxford Parkway into London are expected to commence in 2015, and from Oxford Station in 2016.
In the meantime, trains are being replaced by special bus services

In March 2015, the decision was made that the new station will be named "Bicester Village"
