The MMC is planning a quarterly assessment of the number coding scheme.

MANILA – The Metro Manila Council (MMC) plans to assess the uniform vehicular volume reduction program (UVVRP), also known as number coding, on a regular basis to guarantee its efficiency in regulating vehicle traffic in the NCR (NCR).

Chairman of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Romando Artes said in a Laging Handa briefing on Friday that while the MMC has yet to make another adjustment on number coding, they are planning to reassess the traffic policy every three months or a quarter of the year.

“Mayroon pong panukala na every three months [ay] i-review kung sakali pong ipatutupad ito bago matapos ang termino ni Pangulong [Rodrigo] Duterte,” added Arte, who is also the concurrent MMC chair.

He did say, though, that the MMC might wait until the new administration arrives before making any modifications to number coding.

He said the MMC, which is made up of the 17 mayors of the National Capital Region, is still waiting for more data on number coding and the outcome of a study ordered by Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto.

“We will meet and discuss once this study is completed, and the MMC will decide when we will implement a new number coding technique,” Artes added.

Currently, the MMDA uses a modified version of the UVVRP to reduce vehicle volume in the NCR by 40% during evening rush hours (5 p.m. to 8 p.m.).

Vehicles with license plates ending in 1 and 2 are restricted during these hours on Mondays; 3 and 4 on Tuesdays; 5 and 6 on Wednesdays; 7 and 8 on Thursdays; and 9 and 0 on Fridays.
