‘Game changer for mobility’: SM, Ayala malls urged to have parking for bikes

There’s a growing call for mall giants SM and Ayala to offer parking spaces for bikes to encourage more people to take greener modes of transport.

A global study revealed that setting up bike parking and garages right beside train stations have a huge role in promoting the culture of commuting. Many SM and Ayala malls are located near MRT-3 and LRT-1 stations.

“If Trinoma and SM north just did this in 08/09, would have been a game changer for Manila mobility,” Twitter user @dakilakim said.

Some netizens have praised SM for recognizing bike culture, but not fast enough.
