PITX, T31 transport hubs to be interconnected

Richmond Mercurio (The Philippine Star) - February 27, 2021 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — The operators of the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX) and Township Transport Terminal Inc. (T31) have signed a memorandum of understanding to formally interconnect their transport terminals.

The agreement involves the establishment of a seamless connectivity between Megaworld’s Southwoods City transport hub in Biñan, Laguna with PITX, the country’s first landport in Parañaque City.

The partnership is envisioned to improve the delivery of terminal services to public utility vehicle operators and benefit thousands of commuters heading south from Metro Manila and vice versa.

“Megaworld currently has 26 townships all over the country. And we have a growing community, people who lived and worked there. That is why it is important to us to create seamless accessibility and mobility to and from our townships,” Megaworld chief strategic officer Kevin Tan said.

The collaboration also expands PITX’s reach to other terminals in various areas of the country for a better public transport system.

“PITX welcomes T31, the mobility arm of Megaworld, as part of our growing network of terminals,” MWM Terminals managing director Jaime Feliciano said.

PITX was opened in 2018 and is used by commuters riding buses, UV Express vehicles and jeepneys in the southern Metro Manila area.

T31 currently operates transportation hubs in Southwoods City, Eastwood City, McKinley Hill and Iloilo Business Park.
