  5. 5. NMT Forum and Mapping Workshop21 April 2012 | ISO Conference Room 3 | ADMUExecutive SummaryDubbed as the NMT (Non-Motorized Transport) Forum and Mapping Workshop, the third mappingexercise was conducted by the Inclusive Mobility Project: Catalyzing New Mobility in Cities: The Case ofMetro Manila with Firefly Brigrade, Cycling Advocates and Bike for the Philippines as well as withOpenStreet Map. on April 21, 2012 at the Conference Room 3, Institute of Social Order (ISO), SocialDevelopment Complex (SDC), Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU). The Project is beingimplemented by the Innovations at the Base of Pyramid (iBoP) Asia Program of the Ateneo School ofGovernment (ASoG), with support from the Rockefeller Foundation.The forum provided a venue for sharing information on what the different cycling advocates weredoing to advance the cause and the current initiatives some of the LGUs in Metro Manila were doing.The mapping exercise aimed to (a) reveal and assess existing and potential NMT features andfacilities; (b) provide stakeholders an opportunity to work together in advancing the implementationof sustainable, connected, inclusive transport system and sharing mobility-related information andpolicy initiatives; and (c) learn to use available free and open source web platforms to build on theshareable knowledge base of inclusive mobility-enhancing features of the transport system.A total of 52 participants attended the event, the majority of which came from the NMT sector.Specifically, there were 15 participants from the NMT / MT sector, 12 from local government units(LGUs) and a national government agency, eight from the academe, six from the media, four from aneditable online mapping project, another four from the private sector, and three from a clean airproject.The workshop process concluded a mapping of bicycle hubs (i.e. retail and repair shops and meetingareas of cyclists) in Metro Manila. The groups presented considerably useful information through thedata indentified in the maps. Many of the participants are long-time cyclists and therefore were ableto provide information especially during the discussion of the workshop tasks. Additionally, some alsoprovided tips and trivia on cycling like the place to get cheap but sturdy bicycles, the ideal time forbiking, the possible livelihood strategies relating to bicycles, and the initiatives being done bygovernment and non-government groups to promote NMT. The Marikina City and Pasig City wereexcellent examples of LGUs which transcend NMT ideas into actual implementation.The NMT forum and mapping workshop proved to be helpful in pinpointing basic data on NMT inMetro Manila from among the participants as it was also useful in disseminating parallel initiativesbeing done by the organizers. It is hoped that further activities will be held to tackle and share moreinsights from the participants and be directed for action by concerned groups and agencies.A post-workshop evaluation from the participants validated that the event was helpful in providingnew insights. The forum-workshop was also deemed very useful particularly because the informationshared concerned the participants themselves. A few listing of learnings showed that NMT activitiessuch as cycling can be fun and healthy, and can also be made into an innovative and sustainable way ofaddressing poverty issues in a community. Furthermore, the participants pointed out that workingtogether for the NMT advocacy can be more intensified if the LGUs and policy-makers will beenjoined. The NMT Forum and Workshop, despite the limited time, provided a venue for interactionand possible working together in the future by the different stakeholders committed to advocatingNMT. 1
  6. 6. NMT Forum and Mapping Workshop21 April 2012 | ISO Conference Room 3 | ADMUI.0 Opening SessionThe program was formally started through the singing of the National Anthem. Dr. Segundo Romero,Director of the iBoP Asia Program, (through an audio-visual presentation) delivered the OpeningRemarks. He emphasized a list of ideas that define the concept of inclusive mobility, the term derivedfrom the full project name - Catalyzing New Mobility in Cities: The Case of Metro Manila. Thefollowing are the ideas presented by Dr. Romero on inclusive mobility: (See powerpoint presentation inAnnex 4)  A transport system that works for the poor and vulnerable;  A walkable, bika-able, accessible city;  Moving people, not vehicles;  Mobility must come with safety and civility;  Clean air, clean streets, clean vehicles, clean facilities;  Planning and communicating better and traveling less;  Sharing information to increase connectivity and accessibility;  Making neighborhoods more accessible to the rest of the city;  Changing mindsets and behaviors: the authorities’ as well as ours; and  Mobility of all, by all, for all.Ms. Dinna Dayao, Communications Consultant to the Project and the event’s master of ceremonies,facilitated a mini-game by asking NMT-related questions tothe participants. The following were the Ms. Dayao facilitating the NMTquestions asked and the answers from the participants: Forum and Mapping Workshop  Ilan ang nag-bike papunta sa workshop venue? (How many rode a bicycle in going to the workshop venue?)  Seven  Gaano kalayo mula sa pinanggalingan hanggang sa workshop venue? (How far was the distance covered by the biker from point of origin to the workshop venue?)  5 km (Rolando Nacor)  3 km (Jun Salaveria)  3 km (Carmelito Gomez)  3.5 km (Erwin Paala)  6.5 km (Orlando Vibar)*  10-11 km (Mia Bunao)*  24 km (Rudi Lamco)*  Sino ang may pinakamahal na bisikleta? (Who has the most expensive bike?)  Our bikes are priceless, not because of the price but the experience of biking has given us. Some even give their bikes names. (Erwin Paala)*  Sino and may pinakamurang bisikleta? (Who has the cheapest bike?)  PhP 2,000 (Maning Sambale)*  Free (Carlota Contreras)  Who owns a bike?  Almost everyone does. * These persons were given a small prize each for their answers.The program continued through a self-introduction. (List of participants can be found in Annex 1) 2
  7. 7. NMT Forum and Mapping Workshop21 April 2012 | ISO Conference Room 3 | ADMU2.0 Presentations from Different Non-Motorized TransportAdvocacy GroupsBikes for the PhilippinesMr. Joel Uichico introduced their initiative in the Bikesfor the Philippines to be the first in Asia and in thePhilippines as a bike-giving program, in partnership withthe Department of Education (DepEd), Synergia, and theBikes for the World (U.S.-based) (See Annex 5 forpresentation). Their program aims to help augmentpoverty through giving bicycles and enabling schoolchildren to attend classes by means of cycling to theirschools.Mr. Uichico explained that while there are usually quite anumber of grade schools in an area, there is, more oftenthan not, only one high school in that same area. Thesolution presented by the Bikes for the Philippines is tochoose beneficiaries - children from among the poorestof the poor families in the municipality of Baclayon inBohol. They identified several factors to deduce thebeneficiaries of their program. Among these factors are:  The distance from residence to the school is at a minimum of three kilometers; Mr. Uichico presents their program in  There is no means of public transportation; Bikes for the Philippines  Family income is below the income threshold which is monitored through the Poverty Data Monitoring System (PDMS);  Students at risk of dropping out (SARDO) collected from the schools; and  Must be a resident in the town (Baclayon).The impact of the program to the recipients of the bikes will be monitored through their schoolperformance, livelihood impact, and their use of bikes – which is strictly for home-school-home useuntil they graduate. This is per guidelines crafted by the Bikes for the Philippines.The organization observed that the program was beneficial especially to the children since:  It increased the children’s self-esteem;  It became a form of exercise/health activity;  It became a tool for sports development (i.e. uphill or downhill cycling);  It also helps the environment through cleaner air having no-emission and no-pollution It gives the students more time to do other things/work/chores;  It lessens the travel expenses; and  It became a venue for values formation for the children.Mr. Uichico cited three profiles of children-beneficiaries in Baclayon as examples: 3
  8. 8. NMT Forum and Mapping Workshop21 April 2012 | ISO Conference Room 3 | ADMU  Melanie Taladoc who lives five kilometers away from her school; whose family earns around PhP 4,000.00 per month and is considered as 22nd poorest in Baclayon;  Jen Crystal Taladoc who weaves basket as additional income source and whose family earns PhP 3,000.00 monthly and is ranked 27th poorest family; and  Wendell Taladoc whose family is ranked 66th poorest and which earns a monthly average of PhP 3,000.00. Dr. Nestor Pestelos, President of Bohol Local Development Foundation (a partner of Bike for the Philippines) presented about the software they are using in identifying the poorest of the poor as beneficiaries for their program. The software is called the Poverty Database Monitoring System (PDMS), which was developed through a support given by the Mr. Pestelos shows how the Poverty Database Monitoring European Union. The System (PDMS) works software have been used in several areas and provinces,e.g. Sariaya and Lucban, Quezon; La Union; and provinces in the Autonomous Region of MuslimMindanao (ARMM).The main functions of utilizing PDMS are to rank the poor; identify the poorest of the poor; and beable to see what has happened to them after support has been given. The software generally providesinformation related to poverty incidence by summarizing the occurrence of different povertyindicators in a selected area. The poverty indicators can range from child malnutrition, childmortality, crime, disability, illiteracy rate, and access to health insurance or housing. On the basis ofthese poverty indicators, the group is able to target the poorest of the poor. Dr. Pestelos explainedthat the software can run municipal, barangay or purok level in identifying target families. Thesoftware also helps in finding out what other important problems could be remedied through thehelp of the local government units.Several questions were raised during the presentation: Questions AnswersMs. Contreras: Mr. Uichico:How were you able to avail bicycles? Did you pay I looked up “free bicycles” in the internet andtaxes after you received them from the U.S.? found out that there are lots who give them forI suggest that you also do the same to Montalban free. I also started writing to organizations but Iand Laguna since there are a lot of construction am not affiliated to any foundation orworkers who need this kind of program and this organization. I asked my cousin (Jojo Grant) whowill have a big impact on them. is U.S.-based to collect bikes and even call organizations there. When we talked to Bikes for the World, we showed them that we have the database that will show that th bikes they will give will really help the poor. The freight was taken care of by an organization. Some of the bikes still needed some fixing. Then, 4
  9. 9. NMT Forum and Mapping Workshop21 April 2012 | ISO Conference Room 3 | ADMU the Philippine Navy helped in shipping the bikes to Bohol.Mr. Mendoza: Mr. Uichico:Can it be replicated to the urban areas? This is a pilot project. We’re still feeling the way.Every time we relocate people (e.g. Towerville), We are facing some issues and we’re stillthere are issues that arise. One of them is the learning. But we’re not closing the doors toincrease in the amount of fare in going to work anyone.because of dislocation. Another problem is theseparation to the family: usually, the worker hasto stay in the city for the whole week and onlygo home on weekends. We came up with aTransport Cooperative in line with DOTC tolower the fare. But maybe through the bikes, theworkers will be able to save the PhP 2,500 spenton fare or rent and be able to spend it to otherexpenses at home. They will also be able to gohome more frequently. Indicators to poverty arevery much present in Manila as well. We laudwhat you are doing; I hope it could be replicatedhere in Metro Manila.Ms. Dayao: Mr. Pestelos:Before the selection of the beneficiaries, is there Yes.already an existing data?Ms. Dayao: Mr. Pestelos:How do we get hold of the software? The software is under copyright but you can write to our foundation to discuss about it.Ms. Dayao summarized the presentation from Bikes for the Philippines as follows:  They were able to find partners here and abroad;  They were able to mobilize resources;  They were able to define the beneficiaries and why they should be the ones to be given the bikes;  They have data which can be validated.Firefly BrigadeMs. Mia Bunao gave a brief introduction about the projects and partnerships being made by theFirefly Brigade. She said that it started in 1999 whereas the movement was initially to support theClean Air Act (See Annex 6 for presentation).She then said that the bicycle is the most efficient form of transportation since it does not emit airand noise pollution, and could occupy less space than that of a car’s. The Firefly Brigade beganinstitutionalizing and partnering with different LGUs and NGOs to create a multiplier effect for theadvocacy to gain support from more people. 5
  10. 10. NMT Forum and Mapping Workshop21 April 2012 | ISO Conference Room 3 | ADMU Their projects include critical mass rides which aim to create more visibility on the road so that people will be able to acknowledge that cyclists are also part of the road, and therefore, people would be able to “share the road.” The critical mass ride is considered unique in the Philippines because it is an organized event, with permission from the LGU concerned, and because it looks more like a festivity. The critical mass rides are done every third Sundays of the month, the biggest of which – coined Tour of the Fireflies – will be Ms. Bunao presents the NMT projects of Firefly done this September 2012. Brigade Another project of the Firefly Brigade is the bicycle farm which involvesrepresentatives from malls and bike organizations to map and establish bicycle parking compliance incertain establishments. Moreover, they were able to create spaces for bicycle racks in city halls. Thisway, the LGUs will be encouraged to institutionalize cycle-inclusive plans. So far, they have put upbicycle racks at the Quezon City Hall, Pasig City Hall, Taguig and two other areas. The FB envisionsthat it would be a step-by-step process such that the LGUs will pass an ordinance about it; createbike lanes; organize an institutionalized critical mass ride; or put up car-less days. So far, MarikinaCity has been the model city for this but Pasig City has also been in compliance for the last threeyear and has initiatives on this.Further, they also want to access promotion for bimodal transportation. They successfully initiatedthe Green Zone – a section of the train where one can bring in his/her bike - in LRT 2 through thehelp of DOTC-LRTA. LRT 1 also has the same accessibility although there is yet a signage to bemade.The Firefly Brigade also had a simple bicycle count in three main thoroughfares in Metro Manilanamely: Aurora Blvd., Philcoa, and Monumento. The bicycle count aimed to get information as tohow many people use bikes in said areas. With 30 minutes intervals (from morning to afternoon),they were able to record an average of 7 to 8 bikes inMonumento on a weekend.Finally, Ms. Bunao reiterated their advocacy for sustainabletransportation strategies through institutionalizing car-freedays, bike paths, bike racks, bimodal transport access, andlaws on bicycles that will highlight cycle-inclusive planning,inclusion of biking in school curriculum (e.g. PhysicalEducation). She ended her presentation by validating thatthe bicycle is the simplest form of transportation and themost effective means to influence other people is by wayof example.Cycling Advocates (CYCAD) A brief note about the CyclingMr. Jun Salaveria introduced CYCAD and noted that it Advocates (CYCAD) was presentedstarted in 1995 not as an advocacy group but for long by Mr. Salaveriadistance cycling meet-ups. Later on, they decided to 6
  11. 11. NMT Forum and Mapping Workshop21 April 2012 | ISO Conference Room 3 | ADMUorganize annual rides from Quezon City to any point in Luzon within a distance of 100 kilometers. In2010, CYCAD formalized the “Araw ng Siklista” as an event to give due to cyclists. They arecurrently in partnership with other groups such as the Firefly Brigade and BagCyc in crafting apetition for reforms in the road system (e.g. bike lanes).Marikina City Bikeways ProgramMs. Carlota Contreras of the Marikina Bikeways Officepresented Marikina as the first city in the Philippines to havebike lanes. The initiative is being supported bylegislation/ordinance and is funded by GEF. Ms. Contrerassaid that they would like to expand the bike lanes alongMarikina River to Pasig City and Libis, especially that DPWHis also implementing the Marikina River ChannelImprovement Project.She then invited the participants to join in their Cambio delIndependencia on June 10, 2012 in commemoration of thecountry’s independence day.Ms. Contreras reiterated that there are currently foursenate bills for bike lanes in position. She urged everyone to Ms. Contreras introduces thecollectively work for this advocacy. initiatives of the Marikina City LGU on BikewaysPadyak ng PasigMs. Raquel Nacionagyo of the Pasig City Environment and Natural Resources Office explained thatPasig City has always been inspired by the experiences of Marikina City and Firefly Brigade, amongothers. She then introduced their program, Padyak ng Pasig. She noted that that is is not only forrecreational means but also to help alleviate poverty.They have a “Bike to Work” Loan Program wherein anyone who resides within two kilometers awayfrom the Pasig City Hall can avail a “padyak” loan. The person who applied for loan will pay PhP270.00 every 15th and 30th of the month. So far, they have 250 beneficiaries for this program. Similarly, they also initiated the “Bike to Earn” Loan program where the poorest of the poor in Nagpayong Centennial can avail of the loan. They will pay PhP 40.00 a day within 2 ½ years for the loan. Pasig CENRO has also started implementing the Green Heart Padyak where eco-boys can collect recyclables from households using Ms. Naciongayo presents the initiative of Pasig padyak. City called the Padyak ng Pasig Program Ms. Naciongayo also announced the event thatthey will launch June 3, 2012. There will be a car-less day (every Sunday) in F. Ortigas Jr. Avenue(formerly Emerald Road). It will be closed from 6:00 AM to 12:00 NN. There will be activities and 7
  12. 12. NMT Forum and Mapping Workshop21 April 2012 | ISO Conference Room 3 | ADMUbooths on cycling, health, and food. There will be a critical mass ride in the area. An eco-strip willalso be made available in the area wherein selling of recyclables and e-wastes can be made. Banchettowill also be revived, as well as several “laro ng kalikasan” (e.g. patintero, siato) to maximize use of theroad.After the presentations, everyone was enjoined to have a short merienda before proceeding to themapping workshop.3.0 Inclusive Mobility Mapping Workshop Overview Mr. LorenzoCordova, Jr., Research Associate of the Catalyzing New Mobility in Cities Project, facilitated themapping workshop. Thes session started with the introduction of online platforms that can be usedfor mapping and reporting issues: OpenStreetMap and SeeClickFix. The former was presented by MrEugene Villar (OSM Philippines) and the latter by Dr. Romero.OpenStreetMap PhilippinesMr. Eugene Villar, President of OpenStreetMap(OSM) Philippines, explained the use of the freeand open source platform for mapping.OpenStreetMap is a project to map the worldwhich started in the United Kingdom in 2004.The following describes the OSM:  It is voluntary since it it seeks volunteers to collaborate on the project;  It is open and free;  It is both international and local;  It can be done online and offline; Mr. Villar explains about OpenStreetMap  It needs geo-data (coordinates and Philippines shapes of buildings and roads).The opencyclemap, a specialist map, highlights cycle-related features (e.g. for Marikina bike lanes). Atransport map, which is useful to planners, shows data on bus routes, bus stations, etc. The can help generate a .pdf file of a specific area.Mr. Villar showed an example of an edited map of Quezon City; CBMS data of buildings, churches,schools, and establishments were presented. Questions AnswersMs. Tango: Mr. Villar:Is it possible to get distance from one point to Yes, by using any mapping software. All geo-another using OSM? related data, through the use of GIS applications, can be obtained. There are many softwares that can produce GPS maps.Mr. Salaveria: Mr. Villar:Is there someone in OSM who bikes? Yes, Manny does.His presentation is attached as Annex 7. 8
  13. 13. NMT Forum and Mapping Workshop21 April 2012 | ISO Conference Room 3 | ADMUSeeClickFixAnother crowd-sourcing method of reporting transport issues in communities that was introducedwas the SeeClickFix (See Annex 8 for presentation). Dr. Romero explained the process of using theopen-source reporting technology through logging in the website The followingare the steps to login and report community or transport-related issues or problems:  In order to present transport issues, there is a need for an internet connection to access  One may sign up, fill in information (like display name, email address, preferred password) to sign up and get login information.  Confirm sign up by checking email and clicking on the link sent by seeclickfix.  Login to using the login information.  Click on “Metro Manila” as location, and then click on “Metro Manila New Mobility Now Network” as watch area.  Click “report an issue” and follow the reporting instructions given in the website.  Give the issue a title; describe the issue by stating why it needs to be resolved and who are the concerned authority / community.  Check if the issue was properly reported.  Once the number of issues reported has reached a hundred, the NewMoNow Network will meet at ASoG to discuss and finally bring the issues to concerned authorities or communities.Ms. Dayao reiterated that the two open-source softwares can be used according to the need of thepeople. While OSM is helpful in providing information on certain locations, SCF can help in reportingtransport issues which can be collectively escalated to the concerned agencies or communities.During the workshop orientation, Mr. Cordova stated the main objectives of the workshop, thematerials and resources needed, and the workshop process to be followed (See Annex 3 for theMapping Workshop Guidelines).Groupings were then made where each group had members composed of representatives fromdifferent organizations. This was facilitated through counting off from one to four, and then all thosewho counted one were grouped together, and same process followed with those who counted two,three, and four. Each group assigned their own facilitator, note-taker, and reporter.The participants were then grouped into the following: Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 Group 4Cardenas, Dexter Antonio, Ricci Abuton, Ernst Buhay, TellyChua, Lydia Gaw, Carol Asuncion, Boy Diaz, ThorContreras, Carlota Villar, Eugene Bunao, Mia Flores, BenchieGomez, Carmelito Magtoto, Reynard Mendoza, PeterOrbeta, Joel Mosqueda, Arthur Naciongayo, RaquelRebate, Jowie Oida, Oscar Raymundo, AntonioSalaveria, Jun Paala, Erwin Villagracia, Ritchie 9

If you do the counterflow, they won’t expect you coming so you might go head on with other vehicles. (Mia, Firefly Brigade)  We should follow how all vehicles on the road move because kapag hindi, bastos ka. (Mendoza)Mr. Cordova said that since there was limited time to discuss the other workshop tasks, a futureforum will be organized by the ASoG to further get insights from the NMT sector.5.0 Synthesis, Next Steps, and Closing ProgramDr. Marie Danielle Guillen, Manager of Inclusive Mobility Project, first thanked everyone whoattended the workshop despite being scheduled on a weekend. She said that it was interesting toknow that there are so many groups from the NMT sector working on the same advocacy. She alsosaid it was the first time that these groups were gathered together and involved OSM in the activity.Dr. Guillen acknowledged that there is a national policy which has been started. The DOTC alreadyhas a policy to transform the transport sector such that it should follow that those who have less inwheels must have more in roads. She said that there is no new strategy being introduced; the issue isto strengthen the implementation side, especially by the line agencies (e.g. DOTC and DPWH). 15
  20. 20. NMT Forum and Mapping Workshop21 April 2012 | ISO Conference Room 3 | ADMURationalizing the NMT for public means will have to trickle down to the LGUs. There are alsopending bills in the Senate (e.g. SB 2924: Bicycle Law by Senator Marcos; SB 2396: SustainableTransportation Act of 2011; SB 2688: Bicycle Law by Senator Villar). She highlighted that the current advocacy on NMT in Dr. Guillen states the synthesis and the Philippines is comparable to other countries’ closes the program initiatives (i.e. Mexico, Brazil). It is important to advocate to the public officials to walk the talk. She said there’s an optimism that could be harnessed from the groups who attended the workshop. In terms of local policies, the last policy on pedicabs being used in secondary roads could be dated from 10 years ago. It is with the use of bicycles (e.g. Marikina, Pasig City, Quezon City) that is quite new. Dr. Guillen shared the other initiatives being done by the Inclusive Mobility Project: research study on the mobility cost of urban poor and vulnerable groups in Quezon City; mapping of transport systems; validation of data gathered; research on the business models and management in the transport sector; advocacy onNMT, intermodal and multimodal transport systems; and profile-raising.Additionally, Dr. Guillen noted that the ASoG’s partnership with MMDA, OSM, and other groupscould greatly help in a more strengthened implementation of initiatives towards inclusive mobility.She thanked the participants again for attending the event and advocating the cause.Afterwards, an awarding of certificates and a group photo session transpired.Prepared by:Marien Nilo-Fulo | Lorenzo V.

Annex 3Workshop Guide CATALYZING NEW MOBILITY IN CITIES PROJECT NMT FORUM AND MAPPING WORKSHOP iBoP Asia Program ATENEO SCHOOL OF GOVERNMENT in cooperation withFirefly Brigade, Cycling Advocates, Bike for the Philippines, Tiklop Society of the Philippines, & OpenStreetMap Philippines WORKSHOP GUIDEI. IntroductionWELCOME to the Non-motorized transport (NMT) Mapping Workshop, a half-day eventthat gives participants the opportunity to collaboratively improve transportation system inMetro Manila.We do this specifically today to uncover and to record information about the location andinterconnectivity of facilities and features specifically for NMT in Metro Manila.We are taking an approach co-developed with SMART Centre of University of Michigan andOpenStreetMap Philippines. The approach is intended to promote public awareness of theuse of bicycles and uncover opportunities to build partnerships and to pursue localinitiatives.The NMT Mapping shows a process that can be replicated in other areas by otherstakeholders. The web platforms also provide opportunities for citizens to build communitydata-based and maps that can be a basis for policy decisions. The mapping process bothprovides a tool for users for the short-term, and a tool for identifying future enhancementsfor the long term.Today’s Inclusive Mobility mapping will introduce two crowdsourcing platforms andmethods: 1) OpenStreetMap – method for this workshop to map some of the NMT features and facilities was co-developed with OpenStreetMap Philippines. 2) SeeClickFix – a web-based tool that allows citizens to share data and receive reports on non-emergency neighbourhood issues. The results will be compiled and communicated to local government units and government line agencies.Objectives of the Exercise 1. Reveal and assess existing and potential NMT features and facilities; 2. Provide stakeholders an opportunity to work together in advancing the implementation of sustainable, connected, inclusive transport system and sharing mobility-related information and policy initiatives; and 3. Learn to use available free and open source web platforms to build on the shareable knowledge base of inclusive mobility-enhancing features of the transport system.
  28. 28. II. AVAILABLE TOOLSMapping Tools and SuppliesThe following workshop tools and supplies are available for each workshop group: 1. Maps 2. An easel or flipchart for documenting discussions 3. Metacards 4. Markers for labelling added map features 5. Post-it notes 6. Masking Tape for general use 7. Scissors for general use 8. Magnifying glass for general use 9. Computers 10. InternetPeople Resources You have at Your Disposal 1. Diverse colleagues/group members 2. Knowledge of some of the NMT features 3. Some knowledge of what is connected 4. Sense of humor and creativity 5. Sense of civic duty/passion for improvementIII. WORKSHOP PROCESS1. Find Your Group (as you Find Inclusive Mobility) You will be in one of workshop groups. Look at the colour of your name tag dot. It tells whether you represent a government, an NGO, a big business, a small venture, a media, or academe. Please make sure that in your group every colour is represented. Please choose a group in which you know the least number of people. Each group will have an assigned segment of Metro Manila.2. Organize Your Group * First, please identify a rapporteur to take notes. * Next, please identify a volunteer to report back to the larger group. * Next, please identify a group chair or facilitator to organize and steer the work of the group according to the steps below. Note: List down the members of each group and assign number codes to easily track his/ her inputs (e.g. Juan 1-10; Jose 11-20; Maria 21-30).3. Perform Workshop Tasks This is a mapping information exercise. The workshop tasks are as follows: Workshop Task 1 – Snap Bike Map of Metro Manila Using the focus map as your guide, locate and identify as many of the following (15 minutes):  Bicycle retail shops (use blue sticker dots)  Bicycle repair shops (use pink sticker dots)  Areas where cyclists meet and how often (use green sticker dots)  Cycling events
  29. 29. Note: Be specific to the location as possible. You can use the metacards or papers distributed to the group for taking note of the participants’ inputs. There will be assigned personnel from OpenStreetMap Philippines and Ateneo School of Government to get the information from the participants for encoding to OpenStreetMap. Workshop Task 2 – NMT Information, Idea, and Insight Marketplace List down at least 1 question that you want to know about bikes, biking and bikers (10 minutes) Based on the questions listed, provide at least one answer for each category (bikes, biking and bikers). (10 minutes) Note: One question and one answer per metacard. The inputs will be posted on the board. Workshop Task 3 – Exploring Inclusive Mobility Standards (10 min.) With your experiences and local knowledge, list down the standards that you think should be to make NMT facilities (e.g. pedestrian overpasses, pedestrian crossings, sidewalks, cycling lanes) more inclusive based on: i. Accessibility ii. Walkability iii. Bikeability iv. CrossabilityIV. WORKSHOP OUTPUT PRESENTATION 1. Presentation of Snap Bike Map using OpenStreetMap. 2. Presentation of workshop generated issues in SeeClickFix.V. NEXT STEPS 1. Individual and group contribution to SeeClickFix (100 reports per organization) 2. 20 new reporters per organization 3.

  31. 31. 4/23/2012 Welcome to the NMT Mapping Workshop!What Exactlyis Inclusive Mobility? Segundo E Romero, PhD, Director Innovations at the Base of the Pyramid in Southeast Asia (iBoP Asia) Program 1
  32. 32. 4/23/2012 Inclusive Mobility …  … is the short name for the Project entitled “Catalyzing New Mobility in Cities: The Case of Metro Manila” implemented by the Innovation at the Base of the Pyramid in Southeast Asia (iBoP-Asia) Program at the Ateneo School of Government.  The Project is supported by the Rockefeller Foundation for one year, 2011-2012WHAT IS INCLUSIVE MOBILITY? Inclusive Mobility is ... 2
  33. 33. 4/23/20121. A transport system that works for the poor and vulnerable. The test for inclusive mobility is not that the average person is mobile, but that even the poor and vulnerable are. If we beam only for the average person, we exclude half of the population! 2. A walkable, bike-able, accessible city.  To move the city, every person should be able to carry himself, if not all the way, then part of the way. Everyone who can, must walk, or bike, commute, and only as a last resort, take the car. 3
  34. 34. 4/23/2012 3. Moving people, not vehicles.  Those who have less in wheels, must have more in roads. Efficient and effective public transport must be the backbone of the transport system.4. Mobility with safety and civility.  Mobility in a highly urbanized and complex city must not sacrifice safety and civility.The dignity and security of human life must be upheld. 4
  35. 35. 4/23/2012 5. Clean air, clean streets, clean vehicles, clean facilities. The sustainability of the transport system must be assured, and this must be evident on the ground, not only in statistics. 6. Planning and communicating better and traveling less.  Mobility is accomplishing travel purposes at least travel, cost, and time. Habitual planning and communicating, individually and collectively, help reduce travel. 5
  36. 36. 4/23/2012 7. Sharing information to increase connectivity and accessibility.  Navigating through the city requires choosing between alternative paths, modes, and combinations. The more we know the feasible alternatives, the more efficient we travel.8. Making our neighborhoods more accessible to the rest of the city.  We cannot expect the whole city to be hospitable to our travel intentions, if we keep the city out of our own neighborhoods. 6
  37. 37. 4/23/2012 9. Changing mindsets and behaviors – the authorities’ as well as ours.  Inclusive mobility is a set of conditions shaped by human intentions and behaviors – more of ours, and less of the authorities. 10. Mobility of all, by all, for all. We cannot inflict inclusive mobility on the poor and the vulnerable.They must actively and meaningfully participate and own their share of inclusive mobility schemes and initiatives, commensurate to their collective footprint on the streets. 7
