It would be tragic to come out of the coronavirus pandemic with nothing to show for it in terms of mobility improvement. There is no better time than the present to accelerate the desired transformation of the sector. And we already know what the vast majority of Filipinos want: a walkable and bikeable country.

Establishing safe bicycle infrastructure is one of the most cost-effective and pro-poor measures the government can take during the pandemic, offering not only mobility and economic gains, but also significant health and environmental benefits. This is recognized not only by the four key agencies — the Departments of Health, Interior and Local Government, Public Works and Highways, and Transportation — that have joined hands to promote safe walking and cycling, but also by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases and the National Economic and Development Authority.
