A to B challenge encourages citizens to rethink urban mobility

The World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF) has partnered with Open Streets Cape Town (OSCT) to encourage Capetonians to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions by using environmently friendly transport choices.

On October 30, King Langalibalele Drive (previously Washington Street) will be car-free.

It will be a dance floor, playground, cycling lane for both children and adults to explore and connect. Locals will be able to showcase local projects in the transformed space.

Louise Naudé, WWF Programme manager for Low-carbon Frameworks says the A to B challenge demonstrates that there are other transport options other then your private car.

Provincial Minister of Transport and Public Works, Donald Grant, will be taking part in the A to B Challenge
