In the past few weeks, the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has been closely monitoring the traffic situation in the Metro. This is because of the gradual increase in vehicular volume as more of the country opens up as restrictions ease.

Recently, the MMDA has proposed numerous proposals that they believe could help ease the flow of traffic in the nation’s capital.

It seems though, they have moved forward with one proposal in particular. During a press briefing to the President, MMDA Chairman Romando Artes presented a scheme dubbed the “New Number Coding Scheme”, this proposal seeks to reduce the traffic volume by 40% by implementing a 2-day number coding scheme for vehicles. For reference, check out the photo below for the specifics of the said scheme as proposed.

The MMDA has already submitted this proposal to the Metro Manila Council (MMC) if approved, this scheme could take effect as early as May 1. Although it must be noted that, under the New Number Coding Scheme there will be no banning of cars during the morning, per the proposal, it will only take effect from 5:00 PM-7:00 PM.
