‘Bus is best’ for T in the Park attendees

T in the Park organisers are encouraging ticket holders to plan their journeys ahead of the July festival.

The Scottish fest has a new transport plan, developed by new executive producer Melvin Benn, along with new transport manager Ian Martin, and with input from Transport Scotland, Police Scotland and Perth & Kinross Council.

Both Benn and Martin are advising ticketgoers to follow @TITPinfo on Twitter for live travel updates over the festival weekend. Information can also be found on www.trafficscotland.org/titp, which is live today (7 June).

The new transport plan includes separate roads for buses and cars accessing the site, an improved bus station in a new location, one dedicated pick-up and drop-off point and new car parks. Each transport hub will also have dedicated management teams and facilities.

“We’ve made some major changes to our transport plans and we strongly advise people take the time to plan their journey,” said Martin. “Our main message is that bus is best. You’ll be able to relax while the driver gets you to the festival safely, quickly and closest to the site.

“We are confident in the set-up for 2016 and would remind fans that T in the Park is Scotland’s biggest festival, so an element of patience will always be required, but waiting times will be of a normal level for an event of this scale.”

T in the Park takes place 7-11 July at Strathallan Castle in Perthshire, Scotland. The Stone Roses, Calvin Harris and Red Hot Chili Peppers are headlining the weekend.
