Odd-even system to be used on F. Legaspi Bridge westbound

In an effort to lessen the number of vehicles that fill up the F. Legaspi Bridge on a regular basis, the Traffic and Parking Management Office (TPMO) of Pasig harkens back to an old system of the Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program.

Beginning today, the TPMO will implement a week-long Odd-Even traffic scheme only on the westbound lane of F. Legaspi Bridge from East Bank to M. Eusebio Avenue.

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays

all-four wheeled vehicles westbound from East Bank Road to M. Eusebio Avenue with plate numbers ending in 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 will not be allowed on the F. Legaspi Bridge.

Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays

all-four wheeled vehicles westbound from East Bank Road to M. Eusebio Avenue with plate numbers ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 will not be allowed on the F. Legaspi Bridge.

All four-wheeled vehicles and above are mandated to strictly observe the new traffic scheme seven days a week in order to increase traffic flow.
