Metro Manila is far from what could be called a walkable city.
In less than ten minutes of walking in the EDSA-Ortigas area, for instance, one realizes just how unpleasant it is. The sidewalk is narrow, the ground is uneven, there are few covered areas, the lighting is poor, and on top of everything, the air is very polluted. When it rains, mud puddles only make things worse.
On March 13, 2012, iBoP Asia New Mobility Project together with Clean Air Initiative Asia, one of its first participants at its first New Mobility Mapping Activity with University of Michigan Sustainable Mobility Accessibility Research and Transformation (SMART) Centre in Quezon City last month, spearheaded the New Mobility Mapping in Ortigas Central Business District (CBD).
