SmartBike is a bike sharing programme designed to complement the future provision of cycle paths in the West Kowloon Cultural District, and to encourage visitors to use bicycles as a sustainable means of getting around the Art Park. SmartBike currently allows visitors to enjoy stunning views of Victoria Harbour. In future it will also allow easy access to cultural venues, cafes, restaurants and shops in the park and along the harbour front.
The SmartBike service is operated by TWGHs BiciLine Cycling Eco-Tourism Social Enterprise (BiciLine) and is a perfect way to have fun and keep fit with family and friends.
