More bicycle racks to be installed at 20 MRT stations

The new bicycle racks that have been installed come with two tiers

SINGAPORE: More bicycle racks will be installed in 20 MRT stations in the next two years.

The Land Transport Authority said some 2,500 bicycle racks will be installed.

Lakeside MRT station is one of the 20 stations to enjoy the convenience of the new bicycle racks.

Although some cyclists still choose to park at undesignated areas, many said the bicycle parking situation has improved.

The new racks that have been installed come with two tiers.

"This parking lot is very comfortable and when I lock it, it’s very safe," said one cyclist.

Another cyclist said: "People used to park all over the place but now it’s much neater and safer since there’s a lock."

And while most welcomed more parking spaces, concerns have been raised about whether older cyclists can manage.

"I can’t push my bicycle up. How can we older people manage that?" said a concerned cyclist.
