Prepare For EcoMobility In Sandton

We’re pretty sure you have heard that Sandton is going to be an EcoMobility zone for the whole month of October. It may sound daunting, but don’t panic! If you are unsure of which areas will be partaking in this initiative, which routes to take, or just more information on the EcoMobility World Festival, we have all the details.

This will be the world’s second-ever EcoMobility World Festival, which will be celebrated by creating a month-long dedicated pedestrian zone in part of the Sandton CBD, to promote an ecomobile future for residents and visitors in Johannesburg by promoting the use of public and non-motorised transport. This is the perfect time to get out your running shoes and dusty bicycle you haven’t used in years and get a little fresh air and exercise.

What is the EcoMobility World Festival?

The EcoMobility World Festival is an opportunity for Sandton goers to do things differently start a movement to change the way we move around the city for the better. Sandton’s CBD will benefit from permanent infrastructure put in place to allow for safe walking and cycling as well as facilitate public transport. So, that means you can either catch the Gautrain, Metrobus, Rea Vaya Bus Rapid Transit Network, minibus taxis, metered taxis, tuk tuks or even get cycling and walking to your destination! It will be a bit of a change, but it will be worth it in the end.

Need To Find Your Routes?

Whether you will be taking the bus, walking and cycling your way to work, be sure to clue yourself up on the designated routes! There will be different sections for public transport, cycling, tuk tuks, and walking.
