- A Netizen posted about the daily struggles of South commuters.
- She also posted the current problems of Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange.
On November 26, passengers were stranded at the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX) as a number of Public Utility Vehicles (PUVs) were stuck in heavy jam.
As citizens piled up at the terminal, a Netizen couldn’t help but post about the daily situation of the commuters from the south.
In Jackie Salustiano‘s Facebook post, she explained that all buses from Cavite are required to stop by the terminal, however, there are no vehicles to Baclaran.
“Lahat ng bus mula Cavite ay required dumaan dito. Wala ng byaheng Baclaran dahil lahat ay dito na magbababa. Mas kumonti na ang bus na bumabyahe dahil hindi daw lahat kayang magbayad dito, pero patuloy ang pagbuhos ng pasahero.”
Then she farther stated more problems that they have been encountering at PITX like the lack of entrances, and the slow bag check, among others.
“Pagdating sa PITX, bumubuhos ang mga pasaherong ibinababa ng mga bus mula sa ibat-ibang lugar. Iisa lamang ang entrance. May bag check. Ang mga pasahero lahat nagmamadali. Pagpasok, either aakyat ka or bababa depende kung saan ang byahe mo. Well, pagbaba ko kanina, eto ang daming pasahero pero walang sasakyan.”
The PITX opened on November 10 and it was assigned that all bus routes not covered by the Department Order (DO) No. 2018-025, including Batangas (Nasugbu, Calatagan, and Balayan) and long-haul Cavite routes, are required to terminate their routes at the terminal.
City buses operating within Metro Manila are also required to pass by PITX and pick up passengers.
