Front Liners from San Juan City Received their Bikes!

On June 16, five bicycle units were turned over by Pilipinas in Action to San Juan City, one of Metro Manila's emerging bike-friendly cities under the leadership of Mayor Francis Zamora. The city chose five personnel from the Traffic and Parking Management Office (TPMO) to receive their donated bikes, which also came with a helmet, front light, and lock.

Our beneficiaries: Enrique Viola, 59; Armillet Laxamana, 48 & Jomar Absalon, 35 walk an average distance of 7.5km each way to reach their workplace. In a day, they spend approximately 3 hours coming and going from work, adding more time on their feet as they serve as parking attendants for the city. These long hours of commute take away quality time which they can spend with their families. This kind of sacrifice is similar to our other two beneficiaries: Ma Desiree Perez, 49, who is also a parking attendant & Ferdinand Lagpad, 43, a traffic enforcer.

With their new bikes, these front liners are now able to commute with greater ease as they cycle to work on San Juan City's recently launched pop-up bike lanes. They can now spend more time and energy with their children as mothers & fathers.

As the new normal requires us to adapt to its changes – we can now take the opportunity to change into a "better normal" and a more sustainable future for all.
