Bicycle share program is to encourage residents to take up “Green Commuting”. Drive less, cycle more! To support this initiative, there will be one kilometer off-road bicycle path to be complete by 2014. The new bicycle path will be connected to a 22.5 km PCN and intra town cycling path to Taman Jurong and Jurong Lake area. New bicycle parking facilities are to be installed to make parking of bicycle easier and more secure. All of these effort to make it easy for the residents to “Save Time, Save Money and Improve Fitness!”
