    Hi,

    I have been searching for information about the number coding scheme during this GCQ. I am quite confused about the information noted above that NO vehicles and motorcycles are allowed on Sundays in Cebu City.

    But per Cebu City memorandum ” Section 21: Number coding scheme for vehicles. Motor vehicles including motorcycles whose plate numbers end in odd numbers shall be allowed to use public roads, street, and thoroughfares within the territorial jurisdiction of Cebu city on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. Motor vehicles including motorcycles whose plate numbers end in even numbers shall be allowed to use public roads, street, and thoroughfares within the territorial jurisdiction of Cebu city on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.”

    Based on my understanding, it appears that ALL vehicles are allowed to go out on Sundays? Further information and feedback are highly appreciated. I need to clarify this information since I have an upcoming exam scheduled on Sunday and I have no reply from the testing center yet. I need to have this clarified so I can make the necessary adjustments.

    Regards,
    Khris
