The exercise aims to come up with inclusive mobility and sustainable transport options towards a better normal that will benefit the ordinary Filipino.

Pialago said the three-day exercise will cover Don Enrique up to Asian Institute of Tourism and it will be divided into four stations:

• Station 1: Don Enrique to Don Antonio

• Station 2: Hyundai Comm to Zuzuarregui

• Station 3: Zuzuarregui to Luzon Avenue

The MMDA spokesperson said the pop-up bike lane will be lined with traffic cones and barriers and will be manned by MMDA enforcers and volunteer marshals.

“They will assist the bike commuters and help to ease traffic, and separate motor and four-wheel vehicles from bicycles,” she said.
