PUV OPERATORS TOLD TO UTILIZE PARAÑAQUE ‘LANDPORT’



Public utility vehicle operators were told to utilize the country’s first ‘landport’, the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX).

On Monday, these Metro Manila-bound public utility buses, were stopped as operatives from the Inter-Agency Council for Traffic reminded them to pass by PITX to pick-up passengers.

Bus routes, meanwhile, which are not covered by Department Order 2018-025, were told to terminate operations at the PITX.

These include Metro Manila-bound buses from Alfonso, Amadeo, Mendez, Indang, Naic, Ternate and Maragondon in Cavite and Nasugbu, Calatagan and Balayan in Batangas.

Those who will violate the order will face sanctions according to Argaño.

The PITX, which began operations on November 10, will serve as the transfer point among provincial buses from Cavite, western Batangas and other in-city modes of transportation.

It is expected to reduce the number of buses plying along EDSA-Taft, Pasay and Roxas Boulevard.
