Picture the breeze in your hair and shopping bags tucked safely in the boot, as we glide you past the cars and pedestrian traffic along Chapel Street.
And the best part… it won’t cost you a thing!
EcoCaddy was back this summer to make your visit to Chapel Street Precinct as fun and stress-free as possible.
All patrons needed to do was flag us down and jump on board!
It was hard to miss us as our Caddies shuffled happy shoppers (and their pooches of course!) up and down the length of our iconic precinct.
The EcoCaddy’s provided the FREE service from Wednesdays through to Sundays from February to mid-March.
A ride with us also gave back to the environment – with zero carbon emissions when you roll with an EcoCaddy.
EcoCaddy believe that public transport should be the most convenient, sustainable and affordable way to get around. It should be a service that is people focused and celebrates the importance of the physical connection of places through experiential connections of its users. Their bikes use zero carbon emissions.
We don’t congest, we access
EcoCaddy is legally recognised as a bicycle, so they can use our Chapel Street cycle lanes and go where most other forms of public transport can’t access. This means they are not adding to the problem of congestion and can easily glide through busy Chapel Street at a comparable speed to most other forms of transport, saving you valuable time!
Our EcoCaddy’s are fully- insured, 100% road & safety compliant with Australian Pedal-Assist Standard, Transportation Act and are fitted with approved safety belts. EcoCaddy have gone further to ensure the safety of our Chapel passengers by making it mandatory that riders hold a current drivers license, and complete a rigorous training course and are Senior First Aid trained.
Burn off that Iso Banana Bread! We promise your couch won’t miss you. Chapel Street Precinct’s gyms and fitness studios officially reopened on June 22 for up to 20 people.
Say ‘hello’ to sanitiser stations and single-use menus. On June 1, we joined the rest of Australia by being able to eat & drink inside our famous restaurants, cafes & pubs again (hooray)! See if your local fave has reopened for in-house dining!
