New roads added to number coding scheme

EDSA and C5 were recently removed from the list of places with number coding window — meaning you may no longer ply these roads from 7AM to 8PM straight while your vehicle is under coding. The list just got longer with the addition of new roads as announced by the Department of Transportation (DOTr) in a statement.


The roads with no window hours include the following:


  1. Recto Avenue
  2. President Quirino Avenue
  3. Araneta Avenue
  4. CP Garcia
  5. Taft Avenue
  6. SLEX
  7. Shaw Boulevard
  8. Ortigas Avenue
  9. Magsaysay Boulevard
  10. Aurora Boulevard
  11. Quezon Avenue
  12. Commonwealth Avenue
  13. A. Bonifacio Avenue
  14. Rizal Avenue
  15. Del Pan
  16. Marcos Highway
  17. MacArthur Highway
  18. C-6 Road

“The extended coding hours and expanded coverage of the ‘no window hours’ policy are aimed to decongest traffic flow and reduce volume of vehicles on national roads in Metro Manila,” said the DOTr.

This implementation will begin on November 1 in an attempt to decongest the road; More so with the Christmas season coming up.

    DOT recently announced that the said measure only saved an average of 10 minutes of travel time.

    it appears that the government doesn’t really understand the problem. we don’t have a comfortable and reliable public transportation. hence, people will buy their own vehicle resulting to more congested road. if we have good public transportation service, we won’t have as much vehicle on the road as we have now. for sure you have experienced heavy traffic where there was no accident, no flooding, just sheer large volume of vehicles.
