Depending on the participant's choice, Web Summit passes can be for one, three or five days, costing €9.5, €18.50 or €25, respectively, and will cover Carris services (buses), the metro network and the Cascais and Sintra railway lines, which connect the capital.

The pass allows unlimited travel on these public transports, “including buses, elevators, trains, trams and subways, for 1 x 24 hours, 3 x 24 hours or 5 x 24 hours”, according to a note sent to Lusa.

As in previous years, there will also be a road route dedicated to the tech summit – Shuttle Web Summit –, which will travel between Praça de Comércio (Rua da Prata and Rua da Alfândega intersection) and Oriente Station (Avenida D . João II), with an average interval of 22.5 minutes.

The first trip from Praça do Comércio starts at 08:00 and the last at 20:00, while the first and last trips from Estação do Oriente are scheduled for 08:45 and 20:45, respectively.

Carris also adds that “it will manage and monitor the flow of regular routes, which may be reinforced as the operational availability takes place”.

Founded in 2010 by Paddy Cosgrave, Daire Hickey and David Kelly, the Web Summit is one of the biggest technology, innovation and entrepreneurship events in the world and has evolved in less than six years from a team of just three people to a company with more than 150 employees.
