Leaving the Racecourse


Our shuttle bus service will leave the Racecourse  from South Car Park, stopping at Cheltenham Town Centre and the Railway Station. Buses will begin to leave the Racecourse at 15:30 and will run regularly up until 19:30.

The D & E service will  continue to serve Evesham Road, outside of the Racecourse, from the bus stop at Pitville Pump Rooms. From Tuesday, the D & E service will not be able to enter the Railway Station Car Park. Your nearest stop will be on Gloucester Road outside of the Station.


Tickets for the shuttle bus will be available to purchase from sellers at Cheltenham Railway Station, Cheltenham Town Centre and at the Racecourse.  
Prices are as follows:


£3 single

£5 return


Please note that tickets are not available to purchase on the bus so must be bought prior to boarding. Ordinary Stagecoach bus tickets or passes cannot be used on the shuttle bus. 
If you are planning to use our D & E service then you  require a Stagecoach bus ticket which can be purchased on-board using cash or contactless card. You can also buy your ticket in advance through the Stagecoach Bus App.
