Number Coding Lifted on October 30, November 1-2

Expect heavy traffic on the day of the 2023 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections (October 30,) All Saints’ Day (November 1), and All Souls’ Day (November 2), as the MMDA announced that the number coding scheme will be lifted on those three special non-working holidays.

This traffic management system, which is formally known as the modified Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program (UVVRP), prohibits vehicles from using public roads during the rush hours from 7AM to 10 AM, and from 5PM to 8PM on specific days depending on the last digit of their license plates.

Vehicles with plate numbers that end in 1 and 2 are not allowed to use public roads on Mondays, while those that end in 3 and 4 are restricted on Tuesdays, 5 and 6 on Wednesdays, 7 and 8 on Thursday, and 9 and 0 on Fridays.

The number coding scheme does not apply to public utility vehicles, transport network vehicle services, motorcycles, garbage trucks, fuel trucks, marked government vehicles, trucks, ambulances, marked media vehicles, and vehicles carrying essential and perishable goods.

To “ensure the orderliness of this year’s traditional observance of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day,” the MMDA will deploy around 1,488 traffic enforcers and other personnel from its various departments around key areas of Metro Manila,” according to acting agency chairman Romando Artes.

“The MMDA is prepared to take action to manage traffic, conduct cleanup operations, provide public assistance in case of road emergencies, and clear roads of obstructions ahead of Undas (All Saints’ Day),” Artes said in an earlier press release.

The MMDA reminded motorists to plan their trips, follow traffic laws, and be diligent when driving.
