EC&O Venues Earls Court And Olympia

Travel Plan

Earls Court maintain a constant dialogue with Transport For London (TFL) in order to promote sustainable travel to the venues.

We actively encourage visitors to utilise the extensive public transport network around our West London venues

Cycling is especially highlighted as a sustainable and convenient way to arrive. We are presently building even more cycle racks and have free bike hire facilities at both venues.

"EC&O Venues has been working with Transport for London to increase visitor travel to events by sustainable modes of transport. A travel plan has been developed which seeks to encourage walking, cycling and use of public transport to access the venue. The aim being to reduce the overall number of single occupancy car trips made by visitors to Earls Court events.

A comprehensive travel survey was undertaken at the Confex trade show in February 2008. Over four hundred attendees were interviewed about their travel choices and their perceptions on what could be done to encourage more sustainable travel. Only 5% of event attendees drove a car alone to the event, with a further 2% car sharing as a driver and 2% sharing as a passenger. This shows that the majority of event attendees already travel using sustainable modes. However, given the excellent transport options available to access the site, it was felt that by working proactively with TfL, more could be done to facilitate public transport, walking, cycling and car sharing over single car usage. The travel plan has put forward a number of recommendations that should help to achieve a further increase in sustainable transport usage. EC&O Venues and TfL will continue to work closely together and follow up monitoring will be undertaken next year to identify what action can be taken.”
