The Town Bike: Kaohsiung Offers Attractive Bike Rentals To Stimulate Tourism

If anyone finds the idea of biking around Kaohsiung to be titillating enough, the city of Kaohsiung offers folding bicycle rentals at the R16 Zuoying Station and the R11 Kaohsiung Station.

The bikes were specially produced for the Kaohsiung Rapid Transit system and have been appropriately named the KRT Little Yellow. An all day rental is NT200. If you would like to rent bikes with an all day KRT pass the total package is being sold for NT300.

The two stations also offer storage lockers for luggage, so you can just drop your things and hop on the bikes. The bike service is available Monday through Friday 8:00am - 8:00pm and on weekends from 8:00am - 9:00pm.

Kaohsiung also offers 50 locations citywide where people can rent bikes and return them at any of the 50 locations. There are 4500 bikes available for rent. The program is organized around a timed rental or a pre-paid structure in which citizens can buy a prepaid membership card. Details

With offers like these... everyone can have a ride.
