    PJ-EcoMobility is a project undertaken in collaboration between CETDEM and MBPJ. This project is being undertaking using the LA21 formula whereby the park users, residents, businesses and other community based groups are invited to be involved in this project.

    Our project aims to raise more awareness of local community on the importance of walking, cycling and using public transport (LRT, bus, carpooling) when travelling from first mile to last mile. Most importantly, a change in lifestyle to reduce individual carbon footprint.
