The station is part of Project Evergreen 3, funded and managed by Chiltern Railways It is served every half-hour by trains from London Marylebone Chiltern Railways opened the station in October 2015 for trains towards Bicester and London Marylebone, with services to Oxford railway station beginning in December 2016, delayed from Spring 2016 as locals objected to the extra noise that would be caused910 The journey time to London is about an hour Network Rail completed the final track upgrades on this portion of the route in September 201611 allowing driver training runs on the line ahead of the inauguration of new services on 11 December
The East West Rail Consortium's planned rail service between Oxford and Milton Keynes Central and Bedford Midland will also serve Oxford Parkway12
The station is on the site of the Buckinghamshire Railway's temporary Oxford Banbury Road terminus 1850–51, and north-east of the site of the former Oxford Road Halt 1905–26 In 1942 a Government grain silo was built next to the site as part of a Second World War network to concentrate scarce food and distribute it by rail It was in use until the late 1980s13 In October 2013 Chiltern Railways had it demolished as part of site preparation for the new station and car park14The station in November 2015, soon after opening
Water Eaton Park-and-Ride is immediately adjacent, with bus services to central Oxford15 and to the Headington hospitals Monday to Friday only16
The station lies on National Cycle Route 51, which links Oxford to Bicester and further East17 Oxford Parkway has covered two-level parking for 152 pedal cycles adjacent to the entrance, additional to the existing cycle parking at the nearby Park & Ride It has CCTV surveillance18
The car park has 815 standard spaces, plus 41 spaces for passengers with reduced mobility There is realtime information about remaining available spaces19 There is a fee to park a car6 but the first hour is free There are also spaces for 30 motorcycles
Purchase of rail travel tickets is by machine; there is no ticket office at the station,18 but there is an information desk Toilet and refreshment facilities are also present
Prior to the station's construction, the site was occupied by a large Grain Silo This followed a standard pattern common to other wartime silos, taking the form of two banks of ten seven-storey high cylindrical reinforced concrete silos side by side with the space between them filled by a brick access shaft In the shaft there were associated grain handling machinery and two enormous grain driers which extended the full height of the building It was built in the early 1940s and closed in the late 1980s, after which the yard surrounding it was used by several local businesses including a pet food supplier and a car breaker20
ConstructioneditPlatforms under construction in April 2015, looking towards Islip
Building of the station began in late October 2014 and was sufficiently advanced for services to begin 12 months later
