In a move to attract more tourists to the market, we have taken the bold step of introducing a FREE shuttle bus service between selected Sandton hotels and the market. The bus is routed via Liliesleaf in Rivonia, who has partnered with the market in this exciting adventure. The free shuttle bus service allows visitors the combination of a glimpse into the nerve centre of the liberation movement, and a shopping experience at our tranquil and shady outdoor market.
Lilliesleaf, an icon in the struggle for freedom in South Africa and an award-winning heritage site, honours the journey to democracy for South Africa championed by a host of liberation leaders, including Nelson Mandela. Fascinating stories and events that helped shape our democratic nation are displayed through dynamic and cutting edge exhibits that bring the history to life.
The free shuttle bus is operated by The Joburg Squirrel and offers visitors a hassle-free and reliable door to door service. The shuttle leaves Sandton at 9am each Thursday and Saturday, calling at The Maslow, Hilton Hotel, Radisson Blu Sandton, Holiday Inn Sandton, Hotel Balalaika, Hotel Michelangelo and Da Vinci Suites, and Sandton Sun, before making its way to Liliesleaf and Bryanston Organic & Natural Market. Two further pick ups are made during the day at 10am and 1pm, with two return trips to Sandton via Liliesleaf at 12.15pm and 3pm.
Gauteng residents can also make use of the free shuttle service by catching the bus at the Nelson Mandela Square entrance alongside the Michelangelo Hotel zone located through the arched entrance off West Street. This is a short walk from the Sandton Gautrain Station and therefore suitable for visitors from the East Rand, Midrand and Pretoria.
