The Land Transport Authority (LTA) says it is increasing the number of bicycle parking zones around Singapore so as to make it more convenient for commuters to park either their own bikes or shared ones.
The expanded bike parking zones are located in areas like Bedok, Loyang, Sembawang and City Hall, and in total will provide space for some 200 bikes.
LTA says it is working with bicycle-sharing operators to encourage users of their bikes to park responsibly. To this end, LTA says that strict enforcement action will be taken against all indiscriminately parked bicycles.
