Travel

We strongly encourage Babylon attendees to consider carpooling or taking a shuttle bus service to and from the event. Benefits of travelling to and from the event via these methods include;

Fewer Vehicles

Carpooling enables the use of less cars to transport more people, which means less traffic and less driver fatigue.

Reduce Environmental Damage

Carbon dioxide (CO2 ) is the transportation sector’s main contribution to climate change. Carbon dioxide emissions are essentially related to fuel consumption – each 1% increase in fuel consumption results in a corresponding 1% increase in carbon dioxide emissions. About 8.8 kg CO2 is produced for every 3.8L of gasoline used. Cars also emit small amounts of other greenhouse gases meaning their overall emissions are higher then just their CO2 production.

A Full Experience

The experience of carpooling to a particular event can often fast track new friendships and quickly build strong fun relationships, as everyone has something in common.
