Penang Hill Funicular Service will be shut down for the 2nd bi-annual scheduled maintenance from 18th June till 24th June 2020, and will resume service on 25th June 2020.
Penang Hill Corporation (PHC) schedules two (2) major scheduled maintenance every year for the funicular system under the supervision of the engineers from the funicular manufacturer (Garaventa AG from Switzerland) to ensure the funicular system is always in tip-top running condition and meet stringent safety compliance.
PHC also conducts regular checks and maintenance of its funicular system on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, plus the routine inspections that are carried out after the operation hours.
During the shutdown period, visitors may opt for the privately-operated jeep service from Botanical Gardens, or the existing hiking routes to reach the summit area of Penang Hill.
PHC would like to thank all visitors for their patience and continuous support to Penang Hill. Any inconvenience caused is very much regretted.
