Sep 1, 2013


Since today is a Monday, now would be a good time to remind motorists in Metro Manila about all the essential details of the MMDA\'s Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program, simply known as the number-coding scheme.

* The number-coding scheme starts at 7am and ends at 7pm, with window hours starting from 10am to 3pm;

* The cities of Makati and Las Piñas do not implement window hours. Thus, number-coding is strictly implemented from 7am all the way to 7pm;

* The city of Pasig implements its window hours from 9am to 4pm;

* The city of Taguig does not implement the number-coding scheme on its internal roads. But the scheme is enforced on the national roads within its boundaries (C5, East Service Road and Manuel L. Quezon);

* The city of Parañaque implements the number-coding scheme on the following roads: San Antonio Avenue, Pres. Aguinaldo St., Dominique Savio St., Japan St., Michael Rua St., and France St. in Barangay Don Bosco; E. Rodriguez St. in Barangay Moonwalk; Doña Soledad Extension and Doña Soledad Avenue in Barangay Don Bosco; East Service Road from Dr. Santos Avenue up to FTI Parañaque area; West Service Road from Dr. Santos Avenue up to Merville Park Subdivision Parañaque area;

* EDSA, C-5, Diosdado Macapagal Avenue and Roxas Boulevard are included in the implementation of window hours regardless of the city where they belong;

* Public-utility buses (city and provincial) are now covered under the number-coding scheme, with no window hours;

* Motorcycles are exempted from the number-coding scheme; and

* All UVVRP exemptions and truck-ban conduct passes granted in accordance with MMDA Regulation No. 96-005, MMDA Regulation 98-006-A and MMDA Regulation 10-001, shall not include the authority to use EDSA.
