Bike to Work: A Survey on Use of Bike in the Time of COVID-19 Pandemic

With COVID-19 pandemic, biking has quickly emerged as an alternative mode of transportation. This paper focused on the use of bicycle as a transportation option. The objective of this survey was to collect opinions from the public (especially the bicycle-riding public) that could contribute to planning (safety and sustainability) and greening efforts. Many individuals have resorted to biking due to limited transportation brought about by pandemic, whether for doing errands, recreation or going to work. Results showed that safety and infrastructure are important factors associated with bicycle commuting. Notwithstanding the limited sample of research participants, this research provided an empirical basis for the development of policies and programs such as providing adequate infrastructure and ensuring road safety to promote biking as an alternative transportation.
