A bikeable Metro Manila, together.

The first ever Mobility Awards recognizes bike-friendly local governments, commercial establishments, and workplaces in Metro Manila — and challenges others to keep up.

88% of households in Metro Manila don’t own cars. They should be the priority, not the 12 percent who have at least 1 car. Local leaders with the private sector should promote active mobility (walking and cycling) and improve public transport for the majority.

The mobility revolution is underway.

People in Metro Manila cycle every day. The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority counted over 100,000 cyclists traversing 6 major intersections on EDSA last June, with an average of 4,000 cyclists every day.
