Growthpoint introduces eco-friendly e-bikes to Sandton Central
Growthpoint Properties today introduced the first electronic bike hubs to Sandton Central in a pilot project that pioneers a new, convenient and environmentally innovative alternative mode of transport for South Africa’s financial hub. The e-bike project adds an exciting new service for Growthpoint’s clients, staff and guests. Starting with staff, the project has been running for two weeks, and is already experiencing tremendous use. This leading South African company has installed the city’s first public e-bicycle hubs directly opposite the Sandton Gautrain Station at the Growthpoint-owned 138 West Street building and outside The Place at 1 Sandton Drive, which is owned by Growthpoint and also the address of its own headquarters. The launch fleet of 20 Growthpoint branded e-bicycles look just like conventional bikes, but are fitted with an electric motor.
