Zeelo Partners With Eastgate Shopping Centre And Sandton City

Zeelo, a luxury iconic shuttle service, together with Eastgate Shopping Centre and Sandton City are taking the idea of sitting in traffic to a whole new level of convenience

Shoppers and commuters alike will be able to choose between four morning departure times from Eastgate Shopping Centre and four afternoon return times from Sandton, with a single return journey for R75 which includes free parking. Several bulk ride packages are also available at discounted rates.

The luxury coaches will be equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi, meaning passengers can catch up on emails, watch their favourite series on Netflix, or even nap on the commute, instead of wasting this time fighting with traffic behind their steering wheel. The coaches will be air-conditioned and have spacious, reclining seats for their luxury.

We at Zeelo are passionate about giving people their time back. The average commuter that drives to work in their car wastes up to thirteen weeks a year behind the steering wheel, we want to make travelling with Zeelo a viable alternative to the car”, says James Champion, General Manager of Zeelo SA.

We like to call ourselves the ‘getting people out of cars people’, and this is exactly what we hope to do by launching this service. For every Zeelo journey from Eastgate Shopping Centre to Sandton City, an average of 30 vehicles will be taken off the road, contributing to a reduction in traffic congestion as well as carbon emissions. The partnership leads to the introduction of diversified modes of public transport for the reduction of carbon emissions.

With a vision to create the ultimate convenient lifestyle destination, the building block of on-demand spaces ensures that we provide a revolutionary convenience offering. We understand that time is a valuable resource, therefore through this initiative, we aim to afford time back to people through the means of a luxury commuting service that travels between two of the country’s leading shopping centres, Sandton City and Eastgate Shopping Centre. We look forward to the launch of this partnership and to bringing people closer to a stress-free day”, says Preston Gaddy, General Manager at Sandton City.

At Eastgate Shopping Centre, we pride ourselves in offering convenience to our customers and with Zeelo, this is even more achievable! Nobody enjoys sitting in traffic, so being able to catch up on series, emails, or some beauty sleep while someone else sits in the traffic is a definite win and we are thrilled to be offering our shoppers, and all members of Joburg East, a luxury service of this nature”, says Kelly Belman, General Manager at Eastgate Shopping Centre.

Passengers wishing to use the service will be able to book and pay for their rides online through our state-of-the-art website; have access to 24/7 live customer support through the online live chat functionality; and will be able to track their bus in real-time.

This initiative supports Liberty Two Degrees’ (L2D) strategic building blocks of Good and On-Demand Spaces which have been implemented to ensure that its co-owned centres provide experiential offerings which are unique in the market.
