NATIONAL EXPRESS COACHES
Coaches are one of the best – and greenest – ways to get to Glastonbury. In 2015, our official coach travel partner, National Express, will once again be running services from over 80 locations direct to the Festival’s own on-site coach station right by the Festival gates. Click here for their website and click here for the timetable.
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.

As part of the Festival’s continued commitment to green travel, 15,000 coach + ticket packages were – as in 2013 – sold in advance of the general sale. These coach + ticket packages went on sale at 7pm BST on Wednesday, 1st October 2014, via glastonbury.seetickets.com, rewarding green travellers with the chance to be the first to secure their Glastonbury 2015 tickets.
As with the general release of tickets, Festival goers were able to book up to six coach + ticket packages per transaction. Along with their deposit of £50 per person, those booking coach packages were required to pay the full coach ticket price for their journey.
Brighton Peace and Environment Centre coach
The Brighton Peace and Environment Centre (BPEC) works in partnership with the Big Lemon bus company to provide eco-friendly transport to and from the festival. BPEC have been running a popular coach service to the festival from Brighton for a number of years, this year they are also offering coaches from London. Both London and Brighton coaches are currently discounted to £45 until the end of December 2014. To buy tickets visit the website or to get more information email email@example.com. BPEC have also established a Facebook group and a Twitter account.
Organising your own coach
If you would like to join the ranks of Green Festival goers you are very welcome to arrange a coach and use the Festival Bus Station by Pedestrian Gate A to drop off and pick up, this is a completely free service if booked in advance with us. Any arrivals that are not booked in advance will be turned away & will be directed to the Drop & Collect point & then the shuttle bus service from there.
