The Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX), will start serving some 100,000 passengers daily from Cavite and Batangas going to Metro Manila, and vice versa, beginning November. One of the flagship projects of the Department of Transportation (DOTr), the 35-year Build-Transfer-Operate concession was awarded to infrastructure conglomerate Megawide in 2015. “Preparations for the opening are in full swing,” said Louie Ferrer, president of Megawide subsidiary MWM Terminals, Inc., developer of the PITX. “We are working closely with the DOTr and affiliated agencies such as the LTFRB to ensure that we are ready.” PITX, Ferrer told the Manila Standard, was designed to be “the first Landport in the country,” providing transfers between different modes of land transportation such as buses, taxis, jeepneys, and other PUVs. The terminal building will have three levels. Departure bays for buses, jeepneys, and taxis are situated on the ground floor while bus arrival bays are located on the second floor. The third floor is dedicated to private car parking facilities, AUV bays, and a future connection to the LRT-1 extension project. PITX has a terminal capacity of 200,000 passengers per day. The terminal systems are designed to be passenger-friendly, such as the assured seating system for buses, public information displays in multiple locations, and ample seating throughout the facility. Automated boarding pass scanners will ensure that passengers can board buses only during their chosen trip schedules. PITX is located beside the old Coastal Mall at 1 Kennedy Road, Barangay Tambo, Parañaque City.
