The first true dedicated bike lane in a Metro Manila CBD


If only we could bike to work, we wouldn’t have to deal with snail-speed traffic, irate commuters, and the bumpy journey filled with hellish challenges that make one exhausted even before his day begins. 

Biking from one place to another is healthier and cheaper, too, compared with other forms of commute. 

The bike lanes are purpose built and integrated into the expansive sidewalks of Filinvest City

Dedicated bike lanes in Metro Manila still have a long way to go, but we are making progress. In fact, Filinvest City has opened the first phase of the “first true dedicated bike lanes to be found in any CBD (central business district) in Metro Manila.” 

The introduction of this pioneering bike lanes, which are purpose built and integrated into the expansive sidewalks of Filinvest City, is part of the enhanced masterplan that is being rolled out and implemented in the premier garden city in the south. Part of the said masterplan is the interconnectivity of all its thoroughfares via bike lanes and pedestrian sidewalks. 

This move delights various bike organizations and citizen groups like the Firefly Brigade that have been active in campaigning for pedestrian and bike friendly roads within the metro. Jack Yabut, representing the Firefly Brigade, joined Dolly Macam, senior project development manager of Filinvest City in the launching ceremonies.
