Joburg Ecomobility Festival: All you need to know

EcoMobility: Are commuters losing patience?

Joburg motorists have been urged to be patient and use EcoMobility Festival designated routes.

Many motorists apparently snubbed the designated park-and-ride facilities and used their cars to drive into Sandton, leading to more congestion.

Speaking to 702's Xolani Gwala, City of Joburg's transport director Lisa Seftel said motorists need to adhere to timetables and make use of park-and-ride facilities to ensure that they travel quicker to work.

Listen to the conversation below:

We did get more people towards the end of the week (using park-and-ride facilities), but today we're didn't get a significant increase... and that's why we're calling on the public to take advantage of the park-and-rides.

Lisa Seftel, City of Joburg 's transport director
