Transporting Refugees

According to google maps in order to drive to Poland using a bus or car would be 3,610km. This means 38 hours of driving for someone to transport syrian refugees on a bus or in a car. This would be costly not only for gas but for the toll booths along the way(white dots on the blue line).
