Kaohsiung will demonstrate a new vision by hosting the EcoMobility World Festival 2017. A car-free zone will be created to demonstrate to citizens and visitors how car dependency can be relieved. A travel center will be constructed to manage the flow, and shuttle bus services will be provided. In collaboration with residents, a variety of car-free day activities will be conducted.
