Makati Parking Authority (MAPA)

MAPA and MaCEA remain steadfast partners in the task of preserving the gains and pushing the growth goals of the Makati CBD.

As the entity responsible for crafting policy and implementing parking and traffic rules in the district, MAPA continues to operate the Traffic Management Center. It is equipped with powerful CCTV cameras positioned in strategic locations that are connected to a wall of TV screens at the TMC operational base, where trained operators monitor vehicular flows and, if called for, act to untangle traffic jams and slow down or speed up the movement of vehicles.

In a bid to ease traffic in Salcedo Village, MAPA operatives have seen it fit to relocate the food vending jolly-jeeps along De la Costa St. to the side streets. It was also for the same purpose that MAPA stopped the use of Valero St. as a terminal for loading passengers by UV Express vans plying the Antipolo/Pasig-Makati routes. Loading has been moved to designated points along Ayala Avenue, with loading periods per vehicle limited to half a minute to prevent traffic buildup on this major street.

MAPA enforcers routinely make the rounds of the streets to issue parking tickets, collect parking fees, impose penalties on violators, and generally to enforce parking rules.
