By coach


Arriving / departing by coach

When arriving on site please be aware that you should collect your bags and move onto the grass area as quickly as possible.

There will be over 1,000 coaches coming into and out of the coach station area each day and you can assist by getting off the coach and collecting your luggage as quickly as possible.

Please follow the stewards instructions once in the Festival coach station.

Once you are in the grass pedestrian area follow the signs to Gate A towards the right hand corner of the pedestrian area.

As you leave the coach park don’t forget to pick up your Green Traveller vouchers for all those who have travelled by Public transport.

When leaving please check which service you require, there are a number of services run from the Coach and bus station.

SEE
National Express
Rail and Ride
Drop and collect
Bristol
Glastonbury
Shepton Mallet
Worthy View

Each service will be clearly marked and signed.

If in doubt look for the information cabin as you enter the coach/bus station area and they will help.

There will be around 52,000 people leaving the site through the bus station on Monday so please make sure that you arrive at the appropriate time for your coach - not too early as there will be a lot of people leaving before you and you may get in the way.

Once in the coach park check where your coach will be leaving from and check with the stewards where to wait.

For those who require a ticket on the day report to National Express for services across the country.

Report to GFL 3 for services to Bristol Temple Meads.

Please make sure that you stay behind the fencing separating coaches form pedestrians until instructed to get onto the coach by the stewards.

NATIONAL EXPRESS COACHES

Coaches are one of the best - and greenest - ways to get to Glastonbury. In 2014, our official coach travel partner, National Express, will once again be running services from over 70 locations direct to the Festival's own on-site coach station right by the Festival gates. Click here for their website or click here to download the 2014 Coach Timetable

For the latest availability on National Express's 2014 coaches click here to download a PDF.

Of course an added bonus of travelling with National Express Coaches is that your journey is better for the environment. You generate at least FIVE TIMES less CO2 emissions going by coach, than driving in a car alone to the festival. Why not check out the Carbon Calculator below to see how much you could save.

Here are our top five reasons to get the Coach

1. It's direct - you'll get dropped off and picked up from the Festival site.
2. You won't have to listen to the sat nav or try reading an upside map whilst driving.
3. You'll be tired - after a weekend of late nights, you can let someone else do the driving.
4. The fun can begin as soon as you get on the coach - it will be full of your fellow Festival-goers.
5. It's greener - everyone on a coach instead of separate cars means less of an impact on the environment.
