The Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange is the first “land port” of its kind. Although the Araneta Center Bus Port is also a transportation hub, the PITX is much larger with 4.5 hectares—making it the largest bus terminal in the country. Due to its enormous space, the PITX can accommodate a maximum of 200,000 people.

How to Get to the PITX via Commute
PITX Address: 1 Kennedy Road Tambo, Parañaque City
From Alabang Town Center, walk to Alabang-Zapote Road. You should be right across ATC’s Jollibee. From there, you can either take a bus or a jeep. Both options will take you straight to the PITX. For buses, ride the ones with the “Alabang-Lawton via Zapote” route indicated. For jeeps, take the “Alabang-PITX” route.
If you’re coming from Ortigas or Makati, head to the bus loading area on EDSA that is closest to you. You can take any bus that has a “Baclaran/PITX” card on it. You’ll be dropped off directly at the terminal. Just make sure you’re trying to get a ride on EDSA’s southbound lane!
The PITX will soon be accessible via the LRT-1 line. Although not yet finished, the LRT-1 extension project includes a station that directly connects to the PITX. But for now, you can reach the PITX by alighting at the LRT-1 EDSA Station. There should be orange jeeps that will take you to the terminal.
