The PITX has been described as the Philippines’ “first intermodal terminal,”  can accommodate up to 200,000 train, jeepney and bus passengers per day.

The terminal was built under the Duterte administration’s “Build , Build, Build “ Program , it will feature terminal buildings, loading and unloading bays, staging bays, ticketing and baggage handling facilities, as well as park-ride facilities.

 “All provincial public utility buses, UV Express service and public utility jeepneys originating from provinces southwest of Metro Manila entering via Coastal Road and Manila Cavite Expressway shall end their routes at the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX) in Coastal Road Parañaque from the date PITX is fully operational,” the  Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) said in a Memorandum Circular issued last September 13, prior to PITX opening.

In addition the LTFRB has ordered all city buses, PUJs, and UV Express units with endpoints in Baclaran and SM Mall of Asia (MOA) to extend their route to the PITX to facilitate the transfer of passengers.
“The terminal’s southern location will reduce the number of provincial buses from Cavite and Batangas operatingalong major roads [including] EDSA, Baclaran, and Taft Avenue,” the Memo Circular issued in September said.

The PITX, will be connected to the other public transport systems such as the upcoming LRT Line 1 South Extension, city buses, jeepneys, taxis, and other PUVs plying within Metro Manila.
