National Express boosts departures to Glastonbury Festival

As the official coach travel partner of Glastonbury Festival, National Express has added 34 more departures this year to meet demand. This takes the total number of locations served to 109.

The company is expected to carry over 20% more passengers compared with 2023. A limited number of seats are still available to book, with return tickets starting from £31.50. Tickets include a luggage allowance of 20kg in the hold, plus one piece of soft hand luggage.

National Express will be setting up a pop-up coach station within 100 metres of the festival gates.

“Demand for affordable and reliable public transport has never been greater” – John Boughton, commercial director at National Express

John Boughton, commercial director at National Express, said: “Demand for affordable and reliable public transport has never been greater, and that includes travel to the summer’s hottest festivals and events.

“We have over 25 years’ experience operating special services direct to Glastonbury Festival and with our extensive nationwide network of modern coaches, we’re able to step up and put on additional routes to help even more people choose us as the savvy way to travel to the festival. It’s also good for the environment as the least carbon-intensive public transport option.”
