It's good news! Sen. Manny Villar filed a bill (no. 2688) promoting the use of bicycles as alternative mode of transportation to fight the worsening traffic conditions, air and noise pollutions, and increasing costs of fuel and fares.
The bill provides the creation of bike lanes or bike ways in main roads and highways as well as bike parkings nationwide.
A Local Bikeways Office would be created to take charge of the implemenation of policies, rules, and regulations pertinent to the Bicycle Act, including the registration of bicycles using the bike ways.
