Moving towards a Bikeable Philippines.

Nominate a Bicycle Friendly City, Establishment, or Workplace Now!

The Mobility Awards was driven by a simple goal: the prioritization of the needs of 88% of Filipino households in Metro Manila that do not own private cars (JICA-MUCEP, 2015). According to Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), over 80% of road spaces are dedicated for the use of private cars despite only 12% of Filipino households being car owners. This is not only happening in Metro Manila, but everywhere else in the Philippines where the conditions for cyclists and pedestrians remain challenging. Join us as we search for the most bike-friendly Cities, Workplaces, and Establishments in the Philippines!

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. Even MMDA officials consider the numbers are likely an underestimate, which is why a regular bike count needs to happen, in more locations.
