Every Sunday, Project Occupy Beach Street will temporarily barricade major streets adjacent to Lebuh Pantai for family-friendly, community activities that the public can be a part of. This is in conjunction to the state government's initiative for Penang Car Free Day, where everyone can utilize the six-hour, traffic-free space for brisk walking, jogging, biking, dancing and social activities - yes, busking is officially legit. Skip the drive to Lebuh Pantai on Sundays and hop on the public bus to these streets:
Lebuh Pantai (eco-friendly zone)
Healthy food sampling, car boot sales, recycling station, bicycle station for rent and street market (eco-friendly products and services).
Lebuh Bishop (sport zone):
