Cavite Number Coding Scheme

Seeking to control down the traffic in the province’s major thoroughfares resulting from the congestion of private-owned vehicles, the Provincial Government is set to launch its own version of the so-called Cavite Number Coding Scheme. 

Also known as the Unified Vehicular Reduction System, the regulation when implemented, prohibits all private vehicles—cars, trucks, vans, and motorcycles—which contains a specific number at the end of their license plate or conduction stickers in traversing several major roads around the province.

Specifically, drivers and motorists of private vehicles are expected to adhere on the following number scheme:

  • 1 and 2 – Monday
  • 3 and 4 – Tuesday
  • 5 and 6 – Wednesday
  • 7 and 8 – Thursday
  • 9 and 0 – Friday

Vehicles affected by the numbering scheme are not allowed to travel along certain areas commonly affected by traffic congestion on two sets of time: 6 AM to 9 AM and 3 PM to 7 PM.

Areas subject to the implementation of the numbering scheme include:

  • Aguinaldo Highway
  • Governor’s Drive
  • Molino-Saliwag-Paliparan Road
  • Molino Boulevard
  • Daang Hari Road

The Cavite number coding scheme is supposed to take effect since December 21, 2016, but it was again moved to an unspecified date. Once implemented,  make sure to check your plate number and route before bringing your car to avoid further inconvenience. Drivers who are to be found violating the said ordinance will be punished with a fine amounting to Php300. We’ll update this post once the ordinance gets implemented.
