Megaworld Corporation’s Township Transport Terminal Inc. (T31) has partnered with Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX) to expand the operations of its Southwood City Transport Hub.


Through a memorandum of understanding, Megaworld and MWM Terminals, Inc., a fully-owned subsidiary of Megawide and operator of PITX, formalized the interconnection of the two firms’ transport terminals.

During the virtual signing agreement, Megaworld Corporation Chief Strategic Officer (CSO) Kevin L. Tan said this partnership is seen to establish “seamless connectivity” between the property giant’s Southwood City Transport Hub in Biñan, Laguna with the country’s first landport in Parañaque City.

“Megaworld currently has 26 townships all over the country and we have a growing community, people who lived and worked there. That is why it is important to us to create seamless accessibility and mobility to and from our townships,” Tan said.

“We hope that this is the start of many more partnerships. As it is very important and very strategic to be able to create linkages between the various Megaworld townships, especially in Luzon, to the PITX,” he added.

Tan also said they aim to improve the delivery of terminal services to operators of public utility vehicles (PUVs) and benefit thousands of commuters heading south from Metro Manila and vice versa.

Moreover, PITX Head Corporate Affairs and Government Relations Jason Salvador said this collaboration means that the terminal is now expanding its reach to other terminals in various areas of the country, interconnecting transport hubs for a better public transport system in general.

“Our team at PITX is always happy to impart our experience in operating a terminal, especially if it will benefit our commuter friends,” Salvador noted.

T31 is a fully-owned subsidiary of Megaworld Corporation established in 2020 to provide seamless inter-connectivity and mobility to a wide range of transportation modes.

It aims to complement the integrated township lifestyle that Megaworld pioneered with an efficient mass transit system. It currently operates transportation hubs in Southwoods City, Eastwood City, McKinley Hill, and Iloilo Business Park.

More T31 transport hubs will also be launched this year including Arcovia City, Eastland Heights, Highland City, Capital Town, Clark City Front, and Maple Grove.
