GOF, American version, page 69/70, Emphasis added:
"First, of course, we have to stagger the arrivals. People with cheaper tickets have to arrive two weeks beforehand. A limited number use Muggle transportation
, but we can't have too many clogging up their buses and trains-remember, wizards are coming from all over the world. Some Apparate
, of course, but we have to set up safe points for them to appear, well away from Muggles. I believe there's a handy wood they're using as the Apparition point
. For those who don't want to Apparate, or can't, we use Portkeys. They're objects that are used to transport wizards from one spot to another at a prearranged time. You can do large groups at a time if you need to. There have been two hundred Portkeys placed at strategic points around Britain
, and the nearest one to us is up at the top of Stoatshead Hill, so that's where we're headed."
