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.

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.


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