Johannesburg’s EcoMobility Festival 2015

October 1, 2015 @ 8:00 am - October 31, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

The EcoMobility Festival will take place in Sandton, Johannesburg from 1-31 October this year for South Africa’s Transport Month. It will entail a month-long car-free city district event to inspire an ecomobile future for residents and visitors in Johannesburg and aims to mobilize and raise local and international support for “ecomobile” alternatives to fossil-fuel transport.

The EcoMobility World Festival will showcase the new Rea Vaya bus rapid transport scheme and public transport, cycling and walking friendly infrastructure that the city is constructing in the Sandton CBD.

Over the next few months, the City of Johannesburg will engage in participatory approaches
with residents, property owners, businesses and transport stakeholders to finalize the roads to be closed, the alternative arrangements and the festival activities.
