National Express Back Again for Glastonbury 2024

Back once again for Glastonbury 2024: National Express announce more coach services to Worthy Farm from 109 UK locations

Thousands more festival goers from across the UK can enjoy convenient and affordable travel to the summer’s biggest music festival thanks to increased services from coach operator, National Express. 

As the official coach travel partner of Glastonbury Festival, National Express has added 34 more departures this year to meet demand, taking 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.

National Express will be setting up a pop-up coach station within 100 metres of the festival gates, meaning revellers haven’t got far to go with their festival gear to secure the best spots to pitch-up. 

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.”

In addition to regional coach services, the company will operate a fleet of double decker electric buses on a high-frequency shuttle bus service between Bristol Bus Station and Worthy Farm. Producing zero emissions at the tailpipe, each fully charged electric bus can run up to 173 miles, saving 348kg of carbon emissions compared with diesel buses. 

Tickets include a generous luggage allowance of 20kg in the hold, plus one piece of soft hand luggage. Visit for more information and to book tickets.
