If you have been outside the city roads any time this pandemic, you probably noticed the increasing number of bikers around. If you’re a biker living in Quezon City or know someone who is, we’ve got news for you. Quezon City has launched a bike registration program for cyclists in the city.
Through the Department of Public Order and Safety – Green Transport Office (DPOS-GTO) Quezon City launched its voluntary bike registration program. This program will help registered bikers have official documents to assist them just in case something unfortunate happens, such as theft or accidents.
“The importance of this bike registration program is to help our bikers in case their bicycles cannot be located or are stolen. We can aid them and they can avail of the assistance of the police in investigating missing bikes because the owners can readily present a certificate of ownership issued by DPOS,” DPOS head PBGen. Elmo San Diego said.
Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte is really pushing for the success of this program for the safety and well-being of the bikers around the city.
“As an advocate of active transportation, I encourage bikers and bike riding groups to register their bicycles through this program for us to be able to assist them and ensure their safety. I hope that through this bike registration program, more residents will be inspired to take alternative transportation because they can be assured of their safety and security here in Quezon City,” Belmonte added.
