The number coding scheme in the National Capital Region will be reimposed within the week
Covering only private vehicles, the number coding scheme will be observed on weekdays from 5 pm to 8 pm except on holidays
The uniform ban on light trucks along EDSA and Shaw Boulevard will also resume within the week
The number coding scheme in the National Capital Region (NCR) will return within the week along with the uniform ban on light truck along EDSA and Shaw Boulevard.
Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Benhur Abalos said Metro Manila mayors signed a resolution to re-implement the number coding scheme “during rush hour in the afternoon” on weekdays from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. except on holidays.
The policy will cover private vehicles only. Exempt are public utility vehicles, transportation network vehicle services (TNVS), motorcycles, garbage trucks, fuel trucks, and motor vehicles carrying essential and perishable goods.
Abalos said MMDA is coordinating with TNVS operators on the issuance of stickers so that TNVS vehicles will not be mistaken for private vehicles.
MMDA’s number coding scheme has been suspended since the start of community quarantines in Metro Manila in mid-March last year.
Makati City resumed on June 1, 2020 its modified number coding scheme when Metro Manila was placed under a less strict quarantine status.
