A Trishaw Maker In Penang

Since the 1950s, decades before Grab became a thing, trishaws shaped the public transportation system in Penang. When I wrote this article back in 2014, there were only 200 trishaws left in George Town and today, it’s a part of Penang’s living heritage.

It wasn’t easy searching for Hup Huat Tricycle and Bicycle Repair, a trishaw repair shop situated on Jalan Pintal Tali in George Town. But I was glad to spot the owner Choo Yew Choon and learned more about the struggles and realities of being the last trishaw makers in Penang. Read A Trishaw Maker In Penang.
