The number coding traffic scheme in Metro Manila will be lifted on Tuesday as it is a holiday, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority said.
In a post on its Twitter account, the MMDA said the scheme is automatically lifted on regular holidays, including Labor Day.
“Number Coding is lifted in the entire Metro Manila during regular holidays, such as this coming May 1, Labor Day,” it said in reply to queries from netizens.
Under the number coding scheme, vehicles are barred from major thoroughfares of Metro Manila from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., depending on the last digit of their license plates.
The scheme aims to decongest Metro Manila’s major thoroughfares especially at peak traffic hours.
In the case of this year’s Labor Day, which falls on a Tuesday, the number coding would have covered vehicles with plate numbers ending in 3 and 4. –KG, GMA News
