Who are we?

A not-for-profit collective, the Council for Active Mobility is the brainchild of Bengaluru’s Bicycle Mayor Sathya Sankaran. It is comprised of Active Mobility Councillors and other volunteers who are interested in making the city pollution and congestion-free, hence making it easier for its residents to become fit and healthy - both physical and mental.


A city where 80% of local trips dont use a fossil fuel driven vehicle.

Why are we doing this?

We believe the power to transform Bengaluru into a healthy and sustainable city is in the hands of every resident. We’re here to facilitate the exercise of that power.

What are we doing?


The 15-minute city is a residential urban concept in which all city residents meet most of their needs within a short walk or bicycle ride from their homes. #My15MinCity urges people to shun the motor vehicle for trips in the neighbourhood of their home.
