Metro Davao’s bike lane network is set to open in the second week of June, part of the government’s efforts to promote active transport in metropolitan areas, the transportation department said Wednesday.
As of May 28, the project’s overall progress is at 81%, with 46.15 kilometers of bike lanes completed.
Funded by the Bayanihan to Recover as One Act of 2020, the Metropolitan Bike Lane Network is the government’s response to a higher demand for safer roads for cyclists nationwide as more Filipinos turned to biking when the pandemic’s safety restrictions shut down public transport for a period of time.

Bike lane networks are also under construction in Metro Manila and Metro Cebu, with the aim of linking key activity areas and making safe paths accessible to active transport users.
