Transforming Safety One Street At A Time

Bike Commute Malaysia (BCMY) is a grassroots NGO made up of architects, commuter cyclists, and urbanists, advocating for safer street design and low carbon mobility across Malaysia. The group aims to make streets more safer and inclusive to serve the needs of diverse mobility modes.

Earlier this year, a pilot project was implemented in SK Danau Kota 2 to make streets around schools safer. The project was carried out by DBKL in collaboration with the Global Designing Cities Initiative & Bike Commute Malaysia as a Local Liaison under the Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety.

BCMY Initiative director Justin Lee shares how the well-received road safety pilot project is making an impact, how they're advocating for Malaysian changemakers and the public to reimagine our streets so they can be friendlier for all, and how creating safer streets starts with design.
