From 13 November 2023, Changi Airport will offer free bicycle rentals to passengers who have a layover in Singapore. This year-long campaign offers these passengers free two-hour use of a bicycle to explore outdoor attractions in the airport’s vicinity, including the Jurassic Mile and nearby beaches along Singapore’s East Coast.
With an emerging preference for sustainable and authentic travel experiences, the Changi Airport Connector cycling path that links to Singapore’s wider park connector network allows visitors to explore a diverse range of local sights such as the Bedok Jetty – a popular fishing spot, the East Coast Lagoon Hawker Centre and nearby residential neighborhoods such as Bedok and Siglap. Passengers will be spoilt for choice when it comes to Instagram-worthy photo opportunities, authentic hawker food and chill-out spots.
Passengers with more time to spare and are keen to venture further can pay to extend the bicycle bookings to enjoy more local sights and sounds at their own pace. To help passengers make the most of their time, Changi Airport Group has mapped out four different routes lasting two to six hours. Each route recommends experiences that will appeal to different interests, from appreciating local culture and cuisine to exploring the rustic charms of a quaint part of Singapore.
At the bicycle return point at the airport, pay-per-use shower facilities and an alfresco café and bar are readily available, making it convenient for passengers to refresh and recharge before their onward journey.
Book your ride in advance
Advance booking is now available on Changi Airport’s website [https://changi.me/free-bicycle] and on the Changi App. After the bookings are made, passengers could proceed to the GoCycling bicycle rental facility at Hub & Spoke (next to Terminal 2) to start their riding adventures. Passengers who wish to take up this free offer must have at least 5.5 hours but less than 24 hours till their connecting flights at Changi Airport. They will also need to clear immigration and have an entry visa for Singapore, if one is required.
Mr Ang Siew Min, Senior Vice President, Airport Operations Development and Airport Operations Services, said “This initiative represents Changi’s endeavour to delight our passengers as they fly through our airport or visit Singapore. We hope our passengers could experience the tropical outdoors of our airport and its unique surrounding attractions beyond the indoor terminal offerings.”
