Transportation is one of the major carbon footprint contributors towards country.These emissions are generated from automobiles on traffic, especially during congestion.In Malaysia, traffic congestion remains an issue, especially in developing regions, Penang and Kuala Lumpur which results in massive delays, fuel wastage, monetary losses and environmental pollution.In order to deter these issues, a sustainable transport mode should be promoted which is bicycle.The present study intends to look into the relationship between infrastructural factors and cycling intention.Availability, route planning and accessibility, are the predictor variables and user intention is the criterion variable.The Ajzen’s Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB), will be the underpinning theory in order to understand the intention from the road users.Judgmental sampling method were used and 400 usable data were collected from Penang population through self-administered questionnaire.The findings reveal that relationship between Availability of Public Bike (APB), Route Planning (RP) and Accessibility of cycling-transit integration (ACT) are positively correlated with user’s intention to cycle (CCB), and APB was found to have a strongest relationship with user’s intention to cycle (CCB) in this study.
