Leeds Festival is returning again this August. Ever thought about how you can save the planet whilst you're on your way to have fun?
Leeds Festival sees around 90,000 festival-goers every year. On top of that, there are the stewards, staff, entertainers and support teams so that makes for thousands of vehicles. Indeed if we look at cars alone there could be over 45,000 in and out of the event!
If you are eco-focused and want to protect our planet then it may be worth bearing in mind that travelling by minibus or coach causes less pollution per person per mile than it would do travelling as a group on a train or in a car. For example, if the 90,000 festival goers of Leeds Festival travelled in multiples of coaches rather than thousands of cars then the air pollution of Leeds Fest would be massively reduced.
If you're a festival-goer or group planner & thinking about travelling by minibus or coach then you're already doing your bit for the environment. Travelling by coach can be one simple way to balance your eco-conscience and your travel budget. Your group can all travel together with ease whilst reducing the emissions that pollute our planet. And make sure that the travel company you choose has their vehicles fitted with the latest Euro 5 and 6 engines. These engines comply specifically with EU regulations and will emit fewer emissions per mile. For instance, all our fleet of 11-70 seater vehicles have Euro 5 or 6 engines and they definitely emit lower emissions than we have ever seen before.
Make sure that your festival-bound minibus takes the most eco-efficient route so that you arrive on time and with minimal emissions. It's something that we at TJs Travel always insist our drivers plan in advance. Ideally, like us, you want your travel company to use the power of local knowledge combined with state of the art tracking systems and route planners.
Eco-friendly routes also mean that you pay less whilst helping the planet.
One of the worst parts of driving to a festival is the parking. The hours it takes to simply queue into and out of the car park is mind-blowing. Plus British Summer Time always means that the rain comes as your eagerly awaited festival begins! The thought of very wet wellies and waiting for a tractor to pull your car out of a boggy field does not sound appealing.
Escaping the headache of festival parking and achieving the feel-good factor of saving your planet can come together by using a minibus or coach this year.
We have been taking festival-goers, party people, wedding guests and many more private groups safely to their destination for over a decade. Being based just outside Leeds we know the local area like the back of our hand!
Whether it's Leeds Festival, V-Festival, Rize Festival, TRNSMT Festival, Creamfields or just Bingley Music Live we can take you there (and back).

Just a thank you for the excellent all round service from TJs Travel for our outing to Wetherby town and the races on Saturday 8th Dec. The coach was outstanding and the driver courteous and helpful.
Sorry, I was unable to travel to Castle Howard with my party yesterday but on their return, my friends were very complimentary regarding the Coach and Driver the trip was enjoyed by everyone.
Just got home from a break to London you covered for Omega. I want to say how much of a credit our driver Jason is to your company. From the moment he took over our tour he was faced with a lot of issues the previous driver had caused, but he dealt with each one with true professionalism, he honestly deserves a medal!! London was so busy and Jason handled it fantastically... and got us all home safely. Please pass on my gratitude to him he made our weekend!! And thank you to his little boy Kieran for letting us borrow his dad. Have fun on the quad fellas... Thanks Ashley & Amanda (The ladies who gave you the shortbread, ha ha)
Many thanks for a fulfilling our recent trip to the Blue Dolphin Haven Holiday Park near Filey. We were collected on Monday morning from home then returned Friday morning. We had two different drivers who were really helpful and pleasant. We had two different routes to and from the holiday, going via Driffield and returning via York and although the return journey had major delays on the roads everyone commented how professional the driver was, the buses were clean and very well presented with more than enough space for luggage and legroom. We are now looking for another holiday for next year and will no doubt be in touch to arrange travel. A first class job with a first first class service.
Thanks for a good service. Tony was brilliant.
A Mail Of “Thanks” Good Morning. A mail to express our "Thanks"for transporting us to the races yesterday. The coach was first class and more importantly our driver so helpful and kind,and it was good to meet the management as well. Hopefully it is the beginning of a on going service.
Thank you The tenants really enjoyed the day out and commented on how nice the bus was, they want to go back again nearer Christmas so I’ll be booking again
Prompt, efficient, reliable, friendly. Would definitely recommend and use again after a good day out at Manchester Emirates stadium.
I just wanted to send a very quick email to pass on my thanks to the coach drivers and the company for their support with our trip to Sheffield last Tuesday, 27.2.18. Obviously the weather caused some concern as it could have meant that we needed to cancel the trip. On the morning of the visit the coach drivers all arrived at school on time, parked in a great location and this meant that we were able to leave the school building safely and easily without school traffic causing a problem. I mentioned to one of the drivers that should the snow get any worse then we would need to possibly come back early. He gave me his contact details and said to contact him during the day. He explained that they were staying on site but I had his details should a change to the departure time be needed. All of the drivers were really friendly and helped with the smooth running of a very large school visit. As arranged the buses were numbered and this was really helpful. Once again - thank you. We know we can always rely on you!
I just also wanted to thank the driver - he was fabulous! Especially with the first day problem of the car park gate being locked.
Just a quick thank you to yourselves at TJs travel for the bus provided on Saturday. Everything went excellent, the driver was on time and excellent with our members, The bus was in pristine condition and more than we could have ever asked for. We will definitely use your services again and recommend to friends and family.
Would just like to say on behalf of everyone of us thank you for your services great company and will be recommended by us all and also great for the disabled too!

Every thing was 5 star. Driver was a credit to your company
I have just phoned one of the tenants to ask how it went and he said they all enjoyed and that the mini bus was great. So thank you and I will save your details for bookings in the future.
I just wanted to say thank you for supplying the coach for our day out yesterday. Everything went perfectly. Please could you pass on our thanks to the driver who was very efficient, courteous and very accommodating with picking up and dropping off on the way home.
Sorry I had meant to write before now to thank you for your mini bus for our Daughter's Wedding Day on the 29/4/17. Your Driver (sorry we've forgotten his name) was great on the day especially picking us up initially at Bond End traffic lights with the Tour De Yorkshire also adding to our stress on the day but all went according to plan thankfully.
First and foremost I would like to thank you for your excellent service. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience from start to finish.
Just a quick email to say thanks for Saturday - great service throughout and would recommend. Relieved the day went smoothly!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU ………. for an efficient service that you offered last night on our first company outing.
We had an excellent service and will continue to use TJ services, Regards Barbara
Just want to say a big thank you, I booked your bus for Manchester marathon on sun and got excellent service both on way there and return and the driver even let them have a toilet stop on way back, definitely book you again - thanks Steve.
Excellent service all round - could not have asked for a more helpful driver - would definitely use again.
Fantastic service! Will def be using again every time!
Once again great service from your staff, with seamless transfers. Thank you.
