Mall of Asia has one of the highest numbers in terms of foot traffic attracting an average of 200,000 visitors daily (pre-COVID). With more bike lanes, cooling stations and an increased number of bike racks, they expect to see more bikes on the roads and that mean less traffic and a stronger immune system for all.
