ECity Sightseeing Joburg’s hop-on hop-off bus tours will be facilitating a special Sandton Eco Mobility World Festival route on weekends during the month of October 2015, while Segway tours will be offering a novel way to see the many sights of Sandton.
“City Sightseeing brings with it the feeling of safety and security to explore cities across the world,” says Glynn Soule, General Manager of City Sightseeing, Johannesburg. [www.citysightseeing.co.za]
City Sightseeing South Africa launched the Jozi CBD route almost three years ago and are delighted to be part of the Eco Mobility Month in Sandton. Through consistent all day service on weekends the Red Bus will encourage visitors to hop-off and explore at various highlights showcasing the positive impact of Eco Mobility.
City Sightseeing was the first bus operator in South Africa to be certified carbon neutral. “We use recyclable material, are fuel-efficient and recycle our waste. Following an independent carbon audit conducted by Global Carbon Exchange (GCX), we purchased carbon credits from a Cape Town based company called Reliance to offset our remaining carbon emissions,” Says Soule.
Tickets are priced at R20 per adult (one day pass). The bus will be running from 09h00 – 16h00 on weekends only, in an anti-clockwise direction, starting:
Stop 1: Cnr Rivonia and West Street (Gautrain)
Stop 2: Holiday Inn Sandton – Rivonia Street
Stop 3: Cnr Friedman Drive and Gwen Lane
Stop 4: Sandown Valley Centre
Stop 5: Pedestrian Bridge linking Nelson Mandela Square to Sandton Shopping Centre
