WOT was set up by Oxfordshire people, many from voluntary organisations, acutely aware that with the planned expansion of Witney and its surrounding areas we can no longer afford to rely exclusively on the A40, but require appropriate alternatives, suitable for current and future needs.
Who would want to spend even longer stuck in a massive traffic queue to reach Oxford and its outskirts? The people of West Oxfordshire deserve better.
We lament the passing of our member and local transport campaigner Andrew Wilkins, who passed away on Wednesday 18 January after a short illness. His contribution was greatly valued and we will miss him very much. Our deepest condolences to his family.
This cross party organisation was founded in September 2013 with the help of Railfuture, in Witney. In addition, we are also liaising closely with other groups such as the Campaign for Better Transport, Sustainable Witney, the CPRE Oxfordshire, Bus Users Oxford and were offered a small start-up grant by the RSA (South Central Region).

WOT is a wholly voluntary and not for profit organisation and a member of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) reg no. 20100. Details of the WOT launch presentation can be downloaded from our Proposal page.
