Open Streets Cape Town is a citizen-driven initiative working to change how people use, perceive and experience streets. We do this via our programme of Open Streets Days, as well as advocacy campaigns.


Don't get stuck. Get started.
Open Streets Cape Town will be celebrating Heritage Day on Friday 24th September with a social cycling outing hosted by The Community Collective.
