The Department of Transportation (DOTr) and MWM Terminals, a consortium of Megawide Construction Corp. and WM Property Management Inc., is inaugurating the Parañaque Integrated Transport Exchange (PITX) today. The world-class terminal, also dubbed as landport, resembles an airport.
PITX will serve as transportation hub for Metro Manila city buses and Cavite and Batangas provincial buses.
“Sa PITX, scheduled na ang mga byahe, maayos ang loading at unloading areas, may escalators at elevators, automated fare collection, at may online ticketing system pa,” DOTr said.
“Bukod dito, ang PITX ay may maganda at high-tech na amenidad — may 24 hours CCTV cameras para sa seguridad ng byahero, at may malinis at gender sensitive na palikuran na may shower room pa. Mayroon ding clinic, breastfeeding station at prayer room,” it added.
MWM Terminals, a consortium of Megawide Construction Corp. and WM Property Management Inc., was awarded to build the said terminal in January 2015 with public-private (Build-Transfer-Operate) cooperation period of 35 years inclusive of construction period.
Megawide said the terminal will link all provincial buses from Cavite to other modes of inter-city transport such as buses, taxis, app-based transport, and a walkway to the future LRT 1 South Extension.
