So you made it to Spain, congrats! If you don’t have a car, or don’t plan to rent one (only to leave it parked at Nowhere for a week), then by far the best and most fun option is the Nowhere Bus.

Driving at Nowhere
Nowhere is a pedestrian environment; only registered art cars, bicycles, emergency and administrative vehicles are allowed to cruise around.
To ensure everyone’s safety, we ask that motorized vehicles follow these rules when driving at Nowhere:
- Only drive on site from sunrise (7:00) to sunset (20:00)
- Drive on perimeter roads (not through the center)
- Have a ground escort (someone to walk in front of the car and look for potential hazards)
- Drive very slowly! The speed limit is 7km/hour
- In your barrio or designated Vehicle Freecamping areas. If you park your vehicle in one of these areas, the vehicle cannot be moved again until the event is over. That means you can’t leave to go on grocery runs, to pick up a friend, or go to the river for a swim. Please respect the rules above when driving to and from the vehicle’s home during the event.
- In the Parking Area near the gate. If you plan to drive the vehicle off site during the event (such as driving to town for grocery shopping), then you will need to park in the Parking Area. You can leave the site and return whenever you please.
If you have any questions about vehicle permits at Nowhere and driving on site, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
TOP TIP: Why not club together for a car? Seven-day car rental from www.atesa.es is only €150. Find travelling companions on the forums.
There are a wide range of trains, from the super fast AVE to much slower regional trains. Fares range from 25 to 65 euros, depending on which train you take. You can find up-to-date train schedules at www.renfe.es
Please note that train schedules change on Sundays, so double check you have the correct time for the day you want to travel.
If you are travelling Barcelona-Sariñena, you need to go via Lleida, so first search for train times for BCN-Lleida and then Lleida-Sariñena. There is no public transport to Castejón de Monegros. Also note that the Sariñena train station is over 1km from the centre of the town.
TOP TIP: If you get the train from Barcelona to Zaragoza, you can get the Nowhere bus from there. Our bus picks up from outside the front of Zaragoza train station.
