The City of Makati has announced that they have temporarily suspended the implementation of the number coding scheme. While this may come as a surprise to many the city has been known to have its own set of rules and regulations when it comes to the MMDA’s Unified Vehicular Reduction Program (UVVRP). Given this information, motorists will be able to freely travel into and around the city without fear of being flagged down for coding.
It is important to note, however, that this suspension of the coding scheme is only temporary and will only last during the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) period. This means that this will last only until the end of April or until further announcements have been made.
As for the coding scheme in general, the MMDA has stated that it is still suspended in Metro Manila. The coding scheme was originally lifted back in March of 2020 when the Philippines was sent into quarantine and has remained suspended until further notice. The government agency has stated that the coding scheme will be resumed once more public transportation options become available and the situation normalizes.
While the coding scheme has been temporarily suspended, this does not mean that you should be out and about. Given the still-rising number of cases, the government would like to remind the public to only travel when necessary to lower the risk of transmission and to always follow the health and safety protocols outlined by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF). Metro Manila and four other neighboring provinces are still under MECQ and as such there will still be some travel restrictions in place especially when entering and exiting the NCR Bubble. Unless you have important or urgent business to attend to, it is still best to stay at home.
