As you know, the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange transport hub is now open to the commuting public. It’s a great way to travel to and from Metro Manila if you live in nearby provinces like Cavite, Laguna and Batangas. And we’re sure many such travelers are now seriously considering completely giving up car use during the week and just utilizing the transport system made possible by the PITX.
Just one question: What routes exactly are being served by the hub right now?
The Department of Transportation has answered this question by issuing a list of serviced routes at the moment. Keep this list if you intend to ride any of the jeepneys or buses that make stops at the PITX.

Also, the PITX-Makati-PITX route is via DNS Transport, which has the following schedules:

It’s that simple and easy (we think). We’ll give some of the routes a try one of these days. We hope you’ll do, too.
