In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Pasig City government is “repurposing” its bikes from the Pasig Bike Share program for government officials and healthcare professionals in light of the suspension of public transport. The program is also accepting bike donations (old and new) to continue their services. 

One reason why Pasig City mayor Vico Sotto decided to extend the program to frontliners is because of the struggle of exempted employees going to work the past few days. Using bikes for transportation at this time is vital for the country especially for the frontliners. Active transportation methods like bikes are recommended since it helps boost the immune system, reduces stress and helps avoid overcrowded places on the way to work.
