National Express has revealed that it will lay on extra coaches to the Randox Health Grand National Festival on Saturday 8th April to support race-goers impacted by a trio of rail strikes. 

National Express reveals it will add extra seats as needed, with coaches bookable right up until the day ahead of the event on Friday 7th April 2017.

News will likely be a relief to people who would otherwise be affected by planned 24-hour industrial action staged by Southern, Merseyrail and Arriva Trains North workers.

Managing Director Chris Hardy said: “We’re pleased to be able to add extra coaches to make sure as many people who want to get to the race, can”.

Coaches from 13 locations including Manchester, York, Sheffield and Leeds, will drop people directly off at the legendary racecourse, and there are also services available for those who wish to travel to Aintree the day ahead of the event.

Tickets to the Grand National with National Express start at £21.50 return and you can book them online.

    I wonder if they are aware that all of their current services say ‘sold out”. I think they should run some from Liverpool to try and compete with Stagecoach and Peoplesbus. I can’t wait to see the bus queues with all the strikes. 600 people every 7 1/2 minutes is a heck of a lot for the buses to cope with.
