Pasig City really takes the idea of ‘inclusive mobility’ quite seriously. It has reopened an entire intersection for pedestriansimplemented weekly car-free zones, and renovated beat-up walkways over the past year alone.

Now, the local government unit has made yet another move going in favor of pedestrians, cyclists, and alternative-mobility users in the city. Mayor Vico Sotto has just announced that Lopez Jaena Street in Barangay Sumilang will also be closed off to motorists every Sunday, from 6am to 6pm.

Declared as a People’s Street, this avenue will be a free space for individuals who wish to exercise, play, or simply hang out without any traffic disturbances. Sotto said in his Facebook post that there are three more barangays requesting for a People’s Street as well, so we expect to see more of these around Pasig City real soon.
