Electric bicycle services scrapped

MELAKA, 8 Aug 2017: 

The services of electric bicycles and motorcycles at tourist locations in Bandar Hilir here have been terminated with immediate effect, said Melaka Deputy Tourism, River, Coastal and Island Development Exco Datuk Ghazale Muhamad.

He said the temporary order by the Melaka Historic City Council was issued as the vehicles were operating without licences and could endanger pedestrians.

“We received many complaints and reports about these electric bicycles and motorcycles which cause accidents and disrupt the route of the licenced trishaws and pedestrians in Jalan Kota.

He said the people who rented the electric bicycles and motorcycles broke traffic regulations by not wearing crash helmets.
