Mobility Awards

We work with MNL Moves, 350 Pilipinas, Pinay Bike Commuter, and the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities in promoting sustainable urban mobility through the Mobility Awards—the first platform in the country that gives recognition to acts of leadership by local governments, workplaces, and commercial establishments that encourage cycling, walking, and other sustainable mobility options for their constituencies, customers, employees, and communities.

Through the Mobility Awards, we challenge cities to prioritize the movement of the majority of Filipinos who do not own cars. On top of making our transport system more sustainable and climate-friendly, our work in the Mobility Awards is also hinged on addressing the issue of equity and democracy on the road.

Since its inception in 2020, the Awards have recognized cities all over the country that have been proactively promoting and enabling active transport and inclusive mobility. Moreover, we have recognized workplaces and private businesses with forward-looking efforts and initiatives of private businesses that improve conditions for cyclists and pedestrians. 

Monitoring and baseline data gathering should inform planning and advocacies for more inclusive and sustainable transportation options for cities and communities.

To address the lack of consistent data on cyclists and pedestrians in the country, we work with our co-convenors in the Mobility Awards and our regional partners to conduct bicycle and pedestrian counts across the country.

Our first citizen-led collaborative bicycle and pedestrian count effort was conducted in the four cities of Metro Manila, namely Pasig, San Juan, Marikina, and Quezon City.
