MMDA opens bike lane in Makati-EDSA

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) opened a one-kilometer bike lane from Magallanes to Ayala Avenue along the Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) on Thursday.

“We wanted to have bike lanes on the roads of Makati to further promote the healthy practice of using bicycles as everyday means of transportation,” MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino told reporters.

“These dedicated lanes are intended to ensure the safety of the bicycle riders who traverse Metro Manila’s major roads”, he added.

Users of the MMDA bikes should present a valid identification card to be issued a plastic card indicating the bike number. The issued card will then be surrendered at the control area where they will exit.
