GoCarShare

The RockNess team are pleased to announce that we are working with goCarShare again this year – the free service that encourages people to share car journeys to the festival.

Integrating with your Facebook account, goCarShare makes it easy for you to hire out any spare seats in your Inverness-bound vehicle, and on the flip-side can track down suitable shared transport in your area if you aren’t driving/cycling/train-ing/abseiling yourself in already!

Whether you are firing up your car for the journey to the ‘Ness, or are looking for a ride there with your fellow fun-loving festival-goers, goCarShare provides you with simple, effective tools to ensure happy travels – not to mention a reduced carbon footprint!

A DEFRA report on passenger transport emissions states that “By travelling in a full car, festival-goers’ carbon emissions become comparable to those taking the train, so it can make a real difference.” So to conclude – if you wanna be green, make some new friends and most importantly get to our wonderful fest, then goCarShare is the way forward!

Here’s the link – get car-sharing!


 

Train

The closest mainline station to RockNess is in Inverness.  Sadly there is no RockNess Express for 2013 but it’s worth checking times and prices on TheTrainline.com to see how long the journey takes from where you live.  You’ll probably find that the journey time is much shorter than the RockNess Express because it will be on a standard route.  For example did you know you can travel direct from London Kings Cross to Inverness in around 8 hours?  And remember if you have a 16-25 railcard (or any other sort of railcard) you can get 1/3 off.  So why not get a group of friends together and you can create your own party train to RockNess?!


 

Flights

Did you know you can fly from London to Inverness from as little as £80 return?  From some parts of the UK, and beyond, this is by far the quickest option and may be cheaper than you think!
