Hop on for trishaw ride with a theme



Rides will be revamped to include food-themed tours; S'poreans encouraged to ride too.

TOURISTS taking a spin on a trishaw in Singapore will soon get more than just a sightseeing ride.

Come September, the itinerary for trishaw rides will be revamped to include food-themed tours, which will feature samplings of Singaporean cuisine recommended by a panel of industry experts, which includes celebrity chef Violet Oon.

The initiative is spearheaded by Trishaw Uncle, the new management of the Albert Mall Trishaw Park.

One of the rides will start at the park - which separates Fu Lu Shou Complex and Block 270, Queen Street - and will ply Bugis and Little India. The 30-minute tour is priced at $39 per adult and $29 per child. The revamped Trishaw Park will have a ticketing kiosk, where visitors can enjoy an introductory video before embarking on a trishaw tour. Trishaw themed souvenirs will also be available.

The park will also have trishaw-rider-friendly amenities, such as a rest area, where they can take a break between trips. Before the park opens on Sept 1, the 100 trishaw riders employed by Trishaw Uncle will undergo professional training, to boost their communication skills, service quality and road safety knowledge.

They will also attend a training module offered by the Workforce Development Agency, which will train them to apply effective communication techniques and adopt good service behaviour.

Under the revamp, competitive remuneration with Central Provident Fund contributions will be extended to riders, the company said.

Trishaw Uncle will introduce a fleet of 100 battery-powered trishaws, which have signal lights and can handle audio commentaries.

Besides boosting road safety and enhancing the tour experience, the electric trishaws will make riding less physically demanding for older riders such as Mr Hong Heng Toh, 51, who suffers from diabetes.

Said Mr Png Yiow Beng, managing director of Trishaw Uncle: "The trishaw is an important heritage icon in Singapore... In line with the Singapore Tourism Board's YourSingapore campaign, our aim is to provide visitors with different, personalised ways of discovering the island."

Besides tourists, Singaporeans are encouraged to hop on as well. Special promotions for them will be announced in September.
