Prior to this, Pasig City has been implementing the MMDA’s Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program (UVVRP) also known as the ‘number coding’ scheme, with window hours from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The UVVRP is a traffic decongestion measure which bans both private and public utility vehicles from plying Metro Manila’s roads on weekday peak hours.
