The Department of Transportation announced on August 20 that construction of the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange is nearly complete with almost 96% of it done. Located along the city's Coastal Road, the terminal is set to be the country's first intermodal transport terminal. Department of Transportation (DOTr) Sec. Arthur Tugade has implemented a 24/7 construction schedule to fast-track the completion of the terminal.

The Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX) is expected to be able to serve 200,000 commuters daily. The terminal's launch will start a major rerouting of the Metro's public utility vehicles, which Sec. Tugade believes will decongest EDSA of up to 1,000 provincial buses. The PITX will be connected to the LRT-1, and will cater to other modes of transportation such as jeepneys and buses. Additionally, it will feature an RFID ticketing system, an online bus ticketing system, WiFi, charging outlets, and parking facilities for park-and-ride passengers.
