Hasselt bans cars for mobility week (think about it)

This is the eighth year in a row for Mobility Week and Hasselt has been an avid participant since the idea's inception.
Since 2002, Hasselt has banned cars for the duration of Mobility Week and has fallen back instead on its well-developed bus system. But Hasselt is different from other municipalities in Belgium and elsewhere because, since 1997, this city of 70,000 has been offering public transportation free of charge to anybody wishing to use it – and not just during Mobility Week. deutsce-welle
