If the plans are approved work could start in Queen Street this summer
Plans to use giant bendy buses to ferry people through Oxford are no longer being considered as part of a scheme to pedestrianise the city centre.
The move was being considered as part of Oxfordshire County Council's Transform Oxford scheme.
The council had suggested using them as one way to reduce the number of buses entering the city.
They had intended to use the buses to transport passengers in and out of the city centre from a central terminal.
The Transform Oxford programme includes pedestrianising George Street and Magdalen Street, as well as reducing the number of buses using Queen Street and High Street.
A public consultation on proposals to halve the number of buses in Queen Street and move bus stops from the road altogether has begun and will run until 23 March.
If approved, work on Queen Street is scheduled to start this summer.
