Moving towards a
Bikeable Philippines.

Advocacy

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.
