Baguio City to implement number coding scheme of June 12, 17 holidays

The local government of Baguio City will implement a number coding scheme even on the holidays of June 12 and 17, 2024.

The Sangguniang Panlungsod ng Baguio on Tuesday reiterated City Ordinance 01-2002 which provides that the local number coding scheme is still implemented even on holidays unless suspended by an executive order.

June 12 marks Philippine Independence Day, while June 17 was declared a regular holiday  in observance of Eid'l Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice.

The Baguio city government said the number coding scheme is implemented from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

As June 12 falls on a Wednesday, car plates ending on 5 and 6 are not allowed to operate during the said hours. 

Meanwhile, vehicles with plate numbers ending on 1 and 2 are prohibited from hitting the roads in the given period on Monday, June 17.

Further, the Baguio City LGU said the prohibition applies to all roads within the number coding zone of the city that are located within the perimeter line defined as follows:

  • Naguilian Road from the junction of Bokawkan Road to the junction of Abanao Street
  • Abanao Street extension to the junction of Yandoc Street, Yandoc Street
