Why not consider car sharing to Bestival this year? We have two options for you to sign up to so you can reach more people who you could share with, saving money and carbon-emissions in the process.
Bestival liftshare – linking passengers and drivers to car-share and split the travel costs.
If you need a lift – or if you have space in your car – try Bestival liftshare. It’s really quick to register and you can do it through Facebook too.
When four of you drive together, you each quarter your travel costs (giving you more festi spending money!) – plus you help the environment.
With the average 100 mile car journey leading to over 20 kg of CO2 being produced, Bestival’s goCarShare has the potential to reduce the festival’s carbon footprint considerably.
It’s a great way to save money if you are driving and, as it is built around Facebook, you can see if your friends are going, find like-minded people to travel with, and check people out before agreeing to share.
’By travelling in a full car, festival-goers carbon emissions become comparable to taking the train…… so it can make a real difference.’ (Source: DEFRA Report)
