Runners Assemble! For Penang Marathon!

November 22, 2019

Time to put those muscle to the test!

It’s the time of the year again, the annual Penang Bridge International Marathon is happening this weekend! Time to put on your running boots and join in the fun!

Almost every year it was commented as dreadful to drive to the marathon site as there will be limited parking space and major road closures. So why not try taking public transport instead?

Rapid Penang & Rapid Ferry had extended their operation hours to help runners go to the marathon with ease!

Here are the details.

1) Cross-Straits Service

Rapid Ferry will run round the clock on night of 23rd to the morning of 24th, every hour from 9pm to 5am. Normal weekend schedule as usual outside the spiculated timeframe.

The First Penang Bridge (Jambatan Pulau Pinang) will be closed to traffic on the said night.

2) Shuttle Service to race site

Rapid Penang will provide shuttle service between Jeti A to Komtar and Komtar to Race Site at Queensbay mall on night of 23rd to morning of 24th.

Here are the details.

Route Operation Hour/Frequency Fare
Jeti A – KOMTAR 10pm to 6am / Every 15 min FREE
KOMTAR to Marathon Site 10pm to 6am / Every 20 min RM4 round trip
Marathon Site to KOMTAR 4.30am to 11am / Every 20 min RM4 round trip / Use onward ticket

All the above changes had been updated in the Moovit app.

Moovit wishes every runner a very enjoyable and safe run!
