Coach:
There are normally special National Express and See Coaches festival services running directly into the site from all over the UK. For National Express enquiries click here.

The Lift Share scheme:
If you have to bring your car to Reading then why not try the lift-share scheme. It will reduce traffic congestion to the festival; you can split petrol costs between you, and helps reduce global warming at the same time. For more information click here.

Peak traffic flows are likely on the Thursday and on the morning of the Friday as festival goers arrive on site. Most traffic is expected to depart the site late in the evening on the Sunday and before noon on the Monday. The organisers ask all festival goers to try and avoid these periods unless necessary to minimise congestion.

More information will be here when available.
