The Being Bus is a charter bus service for a safer, more comfortable and sustainable means of transportation to the Being Gathering.
This service provides transport from Lisbon and Madrid Airports directly to the Gathering. We fight hard to decrease our CO2 footprint and a collective means of transport greatly contributes to that. The Being Bus tickets are available online and only for Being Gathering ticket holders.
