The restrictions put in place to limit the impacts of Covid-19 had a widespread impact on transportation and people’s travel behavior. One of the biggest impacts has been the reduction in road transport activity. In the Philippines, public transport services were suspended during lockdown and cycling became the viable and sustainable transport option for the workers and frontliners. Local government units now recognize the need to develop bicycle networks in their own localities.
The U.P. National Center for Transportation Studies, which has a pool of experts in the field of transportation planning, traffic engineering and management, developed a two-part webinar series on bicycle infrastructure planning and design to guide planners and engineers in the development of bicycle networks in their localities and to establish programs that support and encourage cycling.
