One common mode of transportation used in Penang is the motorcycle. Motorcycle can be a convenient (and sometimes faster) way of navigating through some of the small and busy streets of George Town.
One easier mode of transportation in George Town is the Link Bikes that can be found in most tourist spots in the town.
As part of Penang government’s effort to promote cycling, the Link Bike Sharing System was introduced by the Penang Island City Council in 2016 to provide a convenient bicycle-sharing system for the public. One can simply pick up a bicycle from any station and then return it to other stations which will be located at 25 strategic places in George Town. The system also provides an alternative to sight-seeing George Town and to use the service, one can just simply download its app and follow the instruction.

Besides the various routes leading up to the top of Penang Hill, there are also a number of paths and roads at the top for those who enjoy outdoor activities. Due to the fresh cool air and lush greenery nature at the top of the hill, Penang Hill’s Summit Road is a local favorite road for cycling or jogging. Along the Summit Road, one will encounter paths which will lead to the various old British colonial era bungalows built at the slope of the hill.
