“I am directing the DoTr, MWM Terminals to implement the necessary measures to ensure all transport vehicles who will be using the PITX are road-worthy and complies with our environmental laws and proper documentation as well,” he said in his speech during the PITX inauguration.

“I am impressed. I am proud,” he said. “As the first integrated and multi-modal terminal in the southwestern part of Metro Manila, PITX is a landmark project – a landport that feels and functions like an airport.”

The terminal, he said, has a maximum daily capacity of 100,000 passengers, that provides “state of the art bus reservation and online booking and many other amenities that will surely help guarantee a safe and convenient transport experience for the public.”

“With the Build Build Build program in full swing, I assure our people that the government is getting all efforts to construct the necessary infrastructure that would sustain our country’s continued development,” he said.

“Together let us work hard to lay down the physical foundations of a more progressive and prosperous nation so that our countrymen will enjoy at the very least, not a rich-like, not even a bar lower than that, but at least, they are, most of them are poor, but we can assure them of a comfortable, just a comfortable life,” he added. /atm
