The number S3 to Woodstock runs from Oxford Train station (stop R5) and Gloucester Green Bus Station (Bay 8). This is the recommended option for using public transport. It travels north along the Woodstock Road then on to the A44. You will need to ask the driver to stop at the Sandy Lane Roundabout bus stop in Yarnton. From the bus stop, head north towards the traffic lights and crossing. You will pass the Blenheim Edge guest house on your right and will find the science park is located on the right, and is signposted. For the number S3 timetable please see http://www.stagecoachbus.com/pdfs/XOAS003.pdf
The number 2 bus runs from Magdalen Street in Oxford city centre (Bus stop C1) to Kidlington. You will need to get off at the stop along Yarnton Road just before Kidlington Football Club. The number 2 bus is more frequent but less convenient, as from Yarnton Road it is a 5 to 10 minute walk to Begbroke Science Park and there is no pedestrian walkway. From the bus stop continue down Yarnton Road across the humpback bridge and take the right fork down Sandy Lane where you will pass over a railway crossing. Take the first right towards the cycle and pedestrian entrance where you will find Begbroke Science Park signposted.
