New! Pop up buses for conference goers across Yorkshire and Humber!

VAMOOZ brings pop-up bus trips into events and destinations, helping you to make links that aren’t possible or easy on the existing public transport network. And with clever pricing they promise that the more people that ride, the less everyone pays. It’s crowdfunding for bus trips!

Two pop-up VAMOOZ buses will be serving the Green Party Conference, bringing you right to the door of the Harrogate Convention Centre on Saturday 7th October, and taking you home again on Tuesday 10th October.  Pick-ups available in the following locations: Bus 1: Sheffield, Barnsley & Wakefield; Bus 2: Blackburn, Burnley & Skipton

** Free connections can also be made into these stops on any Transdev bus service, i.e. connect into Burnley on the Witchway (X43)  from Manchester, into Burnley on any Mainline service, or into Blackburn from Preston on Hotline (152).

To buy tickets, search VAMOOZ in the App Store or Play Store then download the VAMOOZ app for free. Select your trip, your stop and book through the app. If you haven’t used VAMOOZ before, you’ll get £5 off your first booking. Payment is taken on the day of the trip.

As VAMOOZ trips are crowdfunded, we need enough people to sign up to each trip for them to go ahead. This is about 20-25 people, so share the news with your friends and contacts so they sign up too and reduce your ticket price as they do!


Obviously, we would prefer it if you did not drive to conference unless you have a disability which makes it essential. If you must come by car, please offer a lift to other members in your area. You can do this via the Green Party Liftshare scheme

For directions by car to the venue and information about parking in the on-site car park, please check the HIC website.


You find a map of cycle routes in Harrogate here. There are bicycle stands at the venue.
