Ditch the car for a quick and easy trip to the Real Festival

31 Oct 2016

Locals and visitors are encouraged to think about their travel plans for the Real Festival with lots happening across Penrith the weekend of 4-5 November.

With road closures and limited parking at the Festival site, several measures are in place to make travelling to Tench Reserve as quick and easy as possible.

Major Sponsor Busways is providing a free Park & Ride Shuttle service to the Real Festival from Club Paceway and Jamison Park Netball Courts. Buses will run on a continuous loop from these locations across both days.

Penrith Mayor Councillor John Thain said it’s important people think about their travel plans in advance to make the most of their time at the event, and avoid disappointment.

“Along with limited parking, there is scheduled track work on the T1 Western Line, so I urge everyone to plan ahead. The free Park & Ride shuttle is a great option, or consider riding your bike or walking if you’re lucky enough to live close by, “Cr Thain said.

“These modes of transport are not just more efficient, they’re better for the environment. Promoting sustainable living and encouraging people to become more aware of their impact on the environment is what this event is all about.”

Tench Avenue will be closed from 2pm -10.30pm on Friday 4 November and 6am - 6pm on Saturday 5 November. Free bike parking available, bring your own bike lock and wear a helmet while riding your bike. Call Sydney Trains on 131 500 for track work updates and information on alternate bus routes.
