How to enter Penang Times Square

A friend wanted to know how a wheelchair-user can enter Penang Time Square from road side. Here is how. (Please follow the numbers in the photos below.)

1 is a probable drop off point where wheelchair user can come down from a bus or car. Go to 2 and turn into 3. This leads to the open air car park.

If one goes from 3 to 4, then one would see the main entrance of Time Square. Unfortunately, there is no ramp at the entrance. (We have to work at this problem.)

A wheelchair user needs to go from 4 to 5 to 6, 7, 8 before he / she can see the ramp. It is a small and narrow ramp, often hidden behind many motorcycles. 

Wheelchair access is manageable though not good after one reach point 9. I hope this is useful to the friend who requested for this information.


  1. thank you Kuan Aw ...very good infomation ,
    wiil go visit Time Square one day and let
    you know the felling......

  2. Do you think clear ground markings / disabled access signs, showing direction to entrance points will help ? keep up the good work.

  3. Don't thik so. People just don't bother. Need strong enforcement.
