Metro Manila bikelanes and bikesharing

From the Metro Manila Development Authority

As part of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority’s (MMDA) commitment to promote urban mobility through sustainable transportation, the agency promotes the use of bicycles as a mode of transportation especially in areas with tourism revenue potential.

Alongside the designated bike lanes, the public can also rent MMDA bikes for free. Those who wish to avail of the MMDA bikesharing program will have to register their names at the designated control areas along Magallanes, Pasay Road, and Ayala Avenue. Individuals may also avail of storage facility for the safekeeping of their bikes by registering at the storage area.

Bike borrowers will be given a “borrow contract” that will be signed by an MMDA personnel from the area. The contract stipulates that the borrower must return the bikes on the set date and time and must only be used in the prescribed area within proximity of the bike lane.

Users will be issued a plastic card indicating the bike number they were assigned to use. This card will be surrendered at the kiosk upon the return of the bike.
