Open Design is very excited and proud to welcome ZiPD on board. Just another way to make our festival even more accessible! Contact ZiPD to book your ride – we would love for you to also experience the festival and participate in the many events on offer. 

ZiPD will be launching at Open Design Cape Town Festival! You will also be able to find them at the Cape Town City Hall between 13 and 15 August.  

ZiPD is the first “Uber” system for people with disabilities 

If you have a disability and always wanted to attend Open Design Festival but did not have the means to get there due to many failing systems to support your immobility? Look no further!

Whether you are an employee or a person with a disability that needs to get anywhere: mall, airport, family or friends, medical appointment or meeting.  And your transport needs as a person with a disability is …well…ZiPD. Transport for People with Disabilities from A to ZiPD.
