Color coding scheme suspended from Tuesday to Friday
Starting Tuesday, March 30, 2010, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) color coding scheme for vehicles will be suspended, Philstar.com reports.
The early lifting of the scheme was done to give way to the expected Holy Week mass exodus. MMDA chair Oscar Inocentes said, "This way, [commuters] can travel without any delay, and there will be enough public utility vehicles to ferry passengers all day long."
The suspension of the color coding scheme will be effective until Good Friday, April 2, 2010. However, it will continue to be implemented in Makati, Malabon, and Las Piñas.
