METROPOLITAN MANILA DEVELOPMENT Authority (MMDA) brings back the Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program (UVVRP) or number coding scheme for private vehicles effective by December 1st, from Monday to Friday (except holidays), between the hours 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

However, public utility vehicles (PUVs), transport network vehicles services (TNVS), motorcycles, garbage trucks, petrol-carrying trucks, and delivery trucks of perishable and essential goods are exempted from the number coding scheme.

The MMDA implements the number coding scheme for private vehicles and a light truck ban along EDSA on December 1st.

Light truck ban along EDSA

A light truck ban with modification is in effect by December 1st along EDSA: Between Magallanes, Makati City and North Avenue, Quezon City (both South-bound and North-bound) between the hours 5 a.m. and 9 p.m.

The light truck ban is also based on the number coding scheme applied to private vehicles, with the ending digits determining which day a vehicle is prohibited to drive on the road.

However, according to the MMDA, the truck ban on other roads in the National Capital Region is still suspended.

Garbage trucks, petrol-carrying trucks, and trucks carrying essential or perishable goods are exempted from the light truck ban along EDSA.
