Is there coding in Las Pinas, Muntinlupa and Paranaque?
From The Manila Standard Today:
NOT all localities in Metro Manila are covered by the old and revised guidelines on the exemption from the Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program, according to the Metro Manila Development Authority.
The agency’s MetroBase said Makati City, Las Pinas City and Malabon City followed their own number-coding schemes without window hours.
“These cities implement their own UVVRP as a local law,” Vergel Vicencio of the MetroBase told Manila Standard.
He said a separate arrangement was made by MMDA with the cities of Taguig and Parañaque to apply the UVVRP only on Bicutan Road and Sucat Road, respectively.
The number-coding in Pasig City is implemented between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Vicencio said, noting that the measure applied fully to the rest of the localities.
On Thursday, Chairman Francis Tolentino issued Memorandum Circular 4 revising the exemption guidelines of the UVVRP under MMDA Regulation 96-005 as amended.
He allowed marked media vehicles, privately-owned vehicles being used by media personalities on official duties as attested by their respective publishers, editors or station managers; MMDA tow trucks; vehicles carrying perishable goods; those belonging to medical practitioners; vehicles on a mission to carry relief goods to calamity areas; motor bikes pursuant to MMDA Memorandum Circular 96-005B of 1998; Department of Tourism-accredited marked vehicles; heavy vehicles delivering petroleum products, undertaking international messengerial services, utilized as garbage trucks, of power and water companies, utilized by government in the construction of flagship projects identified by MMDA; passenger buses, and those carrying perishable goods in commercial quantity to apply for exemptions.
As a rejoinder, MetroBase said UVVRP-exempt vehicles under Tolentino’s circular could not apply special accommodations on Taguig’s Bicutan Road, Parañaque’s Sucat Road, and across Marikina, Makati, Las Piñas, Malabon and Pasig. Rio N. Araja

No Number Coding in Muntinlupa
1. From Dona Soledad Avenue: France -> Michael Rua -> Japan –> Sto. Dominic Savio -> Pres. Aguinaldo -> San Antonio Avenue. Note that these streets are in Barangay Don Bosco.
2. From Bicutan Interchange: Doña Soledad Ave -> Doña Soledad Extension -> E.Rodriguez St (in Barangay Moonwalk
3. East Service Rd from FTI Parañaque area to Dr. Santos Ave (Bicutan)
4. West Service Rd from Merville Park Subdivision Parañaque area to Dr.Santos Avenue (Bicutan)
Color Coding is implemented in Las Pinas but there are exemptions like when you have a Friendship sticker but that this also depends on the apprehending traffic enforcer (yes, go figure).
