Brussels-Capital in the European Mobility Week!

The Brussels-Capital Region will organize the sixth edition of its Mobility Week, in collaboration with the 19 Brussels’ municipalities.

Car Free Sunday, which will take place on September 23rd, will be the highlight of the week. That day, the inhabitants of Brussels will wake up in a city free of motorized traffic. No cars, no lorries, no motorbikes in any of the 19 municipalities, making thus more space (160 km2) for bikers, roller-bikers and pedestrians. On top of that, public transport will be free and a broad range of activities will brighten up the atmosphere in the capital even more. This is definitely a unique opportunity for residents and visitors to experience Brussels from a different angle.

This year, the Mobility Week will be longer than usual. We will kick off the festivities on September 15th with a unique musical event called “Musikometro - Busking Brussels” which will be held in various metro stations. September 16th will be dedicated to Cambio, the successful car-sharing system. And on September 22nd, the shopkeepers of Brussels will give a warm welcome to their customers who do their shopping by bike.

Of course, the Mobility Week and Car Free Sunday owe a big part of their success to the enthusiasm of the many schools and neighbourhood committees and the activities they set up.

Public space is not designed for cars and traffic solely. It belongs to everyone. In that respect, the Mobility Week and Car Free Sunday are great opportunities to reclaim public space.
