MANILA, Philippines - The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) opened yesterday additional bicycle lanes along EDSA in Quezon City.

MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino said the newly opened lanes were painted red to make it visible to riders.

He said bike enthusiasts may ride their own bicycles on the lanes but the public can also use those provided by the MMDA for free under its “bike-sharing system.”

Under this system anyone who wants to ride an MMDA bicycle on the EDSA bicycle lanes must first register at the logbook of MMDA personnel at designated control areas at Magallanes, Pasay Road and Ayala Avenue.

Users of the MMDA bicycles should present a valid identification card to be issued a plastic card indicating the bike number. The issued card will then be surrendered at the control area where they will exit.

Tolentino said the EDSA bike lanes in Makati have traffic directional signs and safety features to aid bike riders as the lanes are designed to be shared with pedestrians.

Earlier, the MMDA designated similar bike lanes along the University Avenue up to Tandang Sora in Quezon City and at the Remedios Circle up to Paraiso ng Batang Maynila on M. Adriatico street.

The MMDA also opened a bike lane from the Santolan Light Railway Transit Line 2 station to Imelda Avenue along the Marcos Highway in Marikina City.
