IKO Real Estate, partner of the Francofolies Esch/Alzette from June 8th to 11th, is delighted to announce the introduction of Turtle pedicabs to offer an unparalleled experience of sustainable mobility during the festival.
As part of this partnership, IKO, a developer and promoter of resilient neighborhoods, has imported the innovative three-wheeled Turtle pedicabs from Paris to provide environmentally friendly transportation services to festival-goers. These pedicabs are designed with spacious passenger compartments at the rear, offering comfort and safety throughout their journey. Made from recyclable materials, they exemplify IKO Real Estate’s commitment to sustainability and environmental preservation.
Turtle pedicabs are the perfect mobility solution for the Francofolies, providing festival-goers with an ecological and unique service. They allow pedestrians to enjoy a pleasant and low-carbon footprint mobility experience between the festival entrances and the festival grounds. By combining the efficiency of electric Tuk-Tuks with onboard music ambiance, festival-goers will have a one-of-a-kind and entertaining experience.
For IKO, this type of sustainable mobility solution is essential to enhance the development of car-free neighborhoods like Rout Lëns. Nathalie Tips, Senior Brand Manager at IKO Real Estate, states, “As a developer and promoter, we believe that solutions like Turtle pedicabs are the future of urban mobility. By introducing these innovative vehicles at the Francofolies, we demonstrate our commitment to sustainable mobility and encourage festival-goers to adopt environmentally friendly modes of transportation.”
IKO Real Estate, the Francofolies, and Turtle actively encourage festival-goers to choose these electric pedicabs to test and support a new sustainable mobility solution that could potentially be expanded in neighborhoods like Rout Lëns, contributing to the creation of resilient and friendly communities.
IKO is also committed to adhering to the “Green Event” charter of Franco-Durable, which aims to promote environmentally responsible events. By incorporating Turtle pedicabs into the Francofolies Esch/Alzette, IKO Real Estate demonstrates its commitment to sustainable and environmentally friendly practices.
In addition to their participation in the Francofolies, Turtle is also preparing for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. The startup, supported by Paris je t’aime – Office de tourisme, already has a fleet of 15 vehicles and plans to increase its numbers to meet the growing demand associated with events and the arrival of warmer weather. With their on-demand chauffeur-driven bicycle service, Turtle will provide a sustainable mobility alternative to visitors and participants of the Olympic Games, thereby contributing to the reduction of urban congestion and CO2 emissions.
In conclusion, thanks to IKO Real Estate’s importation of Turtles, festival-goers at the Francofolies Esch/Alzette will have the opportunity to enjoy an exceptional experience of sustainable mobility, combining comfort, environmental friendliness, and uniqueness. IKO Real Estate further strengthens its commitment to sustainability and soft mobility while supporting cultural and artistic initiatives such as the Francofolies.
