Taguig Mayor Lani Cayetano led city officials in observing World Car-Free Day by biking to her work place.

Cayetano, the bike patrol team, department heads, and other cyclists rode their bikes to the Taguig City Hall today.

They started their ride at Lakeshore and passed through the city’s various streets and bike lanes.

The goal of the activity is to encourage residents to use their bicycles, skateboards, or electric scooters as a primary mode of transportation using Taguig’s bike lanes, the city government said.

It also aims to highlight the benefits that not using cars would have for the environment, it said.

“Ang pagbibisikleta po papunta sa mga paarlan, pook-trabahuhan, ay napakahalagang ambag natin sa ating kalikasan—dahil nakakatulong ito sa pangarap natin sa mas malinis na quality ng hangin, nakakabenipisyo sa ating kalusugan dahil nagsisilbi itong ehersisyo at higit sa lahat napapakita natin na ang City of Taguig ay kaisa din ng iba’t ibang bansa na ineembrace na ang ganitong klaseng pamamaraan ng pamumuhay,” Cayetano said.
