As part of its efforts to help in promoting active transportation in the country, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) has opened a survey to ask all road users, particularly cyclists, their opinions about bike lanes.


The online survey, according to the DOTr, aims to collect the perceptions of road users on bicycle infrastructures across the country, as well as the implementation of a bike-sharing system and of policies promoting active transportation.

“The results of the survey will be used in various studies, policies, and projects promoting active transportation in the country,” it added.

Interested participants may access the survey through this link http://bit.ly/PHBikeLaneSurvey or through scanning the QR code posted by the DOTr on its Facebook page.

Developed by the DOTr, the Department of Public Works and Highways, and the World Bank, the survey form has six parts and will include questions regarding your everyday mode of transportation.

The transportation department has been promoting the use of active transport such as bikes and scooters since Metro Manila was placed under hard lockdown last year as operations of public utility vehicles (PUVs) have been suspended to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

This also resulted in the establishment of bike lanes of some local government units as many Filipinos have shifted to biking when they buy essential goods or go to work.
