MMDA: Number coding back in effect in Metro Manila

April 10, 2012 10:00am

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) reminded motorists that the Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program (UVVRP) or Number Coding Scheme is back in effect on Tuesday.

Responding on inquiries from netizens, the MMDA said on its Twitter account on Tuesday: "Yes, Number Coding is implemented today." 
Under the Number Coding Scheme, vehicles are barred from major thoroughfares in Metro Manila depending on the last digit of their license plates.
The scheme was suspended from April 2 to 9 for the Holy Week exodus. 
According to the MMDA website, the Number Coding Scheme is implemented from 7:00 a.m.  to 7:00 p.m. with window hours from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The cities of Makati and Las Piñas do not implement window hours and the number coding is strictly implemented in those areas from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
In contrast, the cities of Marikina and Muntinlupa do not implement the Number Coding Scheme.
Pasig City, on the other hand, implements window hours from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Taguig City does not implement the Number Coding Scheme within its internal roads but only along the national roads within its boundaries, i.e. C5, East Service Road and Manuel L. Quezon.
Certain areas in Pasay City do not implement the Number Coding Scheme: Ninoy Aquino Ave., MIA Road, Domestic Road, Airport Road, Sales Road, and portions of Buendia.
Parañaque City implements the Number Coding Scheme, including the window hours (10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.), only in 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 Road, Diosdado Macapagal Avenue, and Roxas Boulevard are included in the implementation of Window Hours regardless of the city where they belong.
All Public Utility Buses (City and Provincial) are now covered under the Number Coding Scheme, with no "Window Hours".
Meanwhile, motorcycles are exempted from the scheme. - VVP, GMA News
