Buses, Driving, Trains

On Saturday 1st June, Rod Stewart is performing an open-air concert at York Racecourse.

As many as 30,000 people are expected to attend the event between 4pm and midnight.

Roads in the area are expected to be very busy. The council and event organisers have implemented a traffic management plan, similar to the one used on busy race-days, which will be in place from 2pm.

If you are attending the event, a frequent shuttle bus service between York Station and the racecourse will be operating from 16:00 until the end of the event.

Traffic heading to the event will be directed from the A64 via Tadcaster Road, Sim Balk Lane and Bishopthorpe Road.

Parking is available at the racecourse site- the main car parks will be accessible from Bishopthorpe Road, Campleshon Road and Knavesmire Road. Please follow directional signage rather than your sat-nav.

A temporary one-way system around the racecourse will permit traffic to head in a northbound direction only. This will be in place on Bishopthorpe Road from 14:00-20:00 and Knavesmire Rd from 14:00-01:00. See our bus diversions page for information on how services 11 and 21 will be affected by this.

Please expect delays and allow additional time for your journey on Saturday afternoon and evening. Check journey planners and Google live traffic view to see how your journey may be affected.
