song: kawaiku naritai (honeyworks)

LinkBike is an initiative supported by the Penang Island City Council (MBPP) to make Penang a cycling-friendly city. Operated by FAST RENT BIKE (PG) Sdn Bhd and has set up 25 strategic location within Penang Island from Straits Quay down to Queensbay.

A new concept of bicycle-sharing system which allows public to connect and commute within the city of Penang as anyone can just pick up a bike from any of the 25 designated stations and return it to another station.

To use LinkBike, one should first sign up here to purchase their credit. Then proceed to any docking station and scan the QR Code on the LinkBike app from your smartphone or you may just use the LinkBike card to pick up a bike. Once scanned the bike can be then taken off from the docking station and you may proceed to ride anywhere around Penang and then return it back to any  LinkBike docking station available up to your own convenience and preference.
