Bill introduced to make public transport the primary mobility option in 12 months

Inquirer News: "
“The DoTC shall provide guidelines that will promote a shift toward public transportation as a primary mobility option to the general public within 12 months from the effectivity of this act,” it says.
The Cayetano bill also provides for three-meter-wide sidewalks along primary and secondary roads for safe pedestrian passage and the convenient use of wheelchairs and strollers.
It also provides for bike lanes “for the preferential or exclusive use of bicycles” in a portion of roadways and highways.
Cayetano proposes that better public transportation initiatives be studied and implemented “to reduce the impact of the declining oil economy on our environment and financial markets as well as help reduce energy costs, pollution and even urban poverty.”"
