Southwest Integrated Provincial Transport System Moved to Pasay

Due to the close proximity of Cavite, Laguna, and Batangas to the National Capital Region, the people hailing from these provinces regularly travel to Metro Manila to attend work and school. The majority of this population use the Southwest Integrated Provincial Transport System (SWIPTS) as an access point for their daily commute back home.

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) is the government agency assigned to oversee the implementation of SWIPTS. The project started its operations on 2013 at the Uniwide Coastal Mall Terminal in Paranaque City wherein it occupied 1.4 hectares of the mall property.

The 2013 contract for the project expired in the first quarter of 2016. The SWIPTS continued its use of the mall space until March 2017 while MMDA allocated PHP 1.12 million to settle the monthly rental fee to the mall management.

On March 2017, MMDA announced its decision to relocate the bus terminal to a lot on Macapagal Boulevard in Pasay City. The vacant lot, adjacent to the HK Sun Plaza, is a property owned by the MMDA. The recent transfer of SWIPTS to Pasay City induced mixed responses from its frequent passengers when it held its soft opening on May 5, 2017.

The temporary terminal in Pasay City will perform a new dispatch system wherein 17 slots will be used for loading passengers and 11 slots for unloading passengers of provincial buses. There will also be six bays for the loading and unloading of city buses.

    Hi Go Cavite,

    A lot of commuters utilize MRT before riding a bus bound for Cavite. Since terminal at coastal mall is no longer available, is there a way for MMDA to provide or set-up public utility vehicles from MRT pasay-taft station to the temporary terminal in macapagal HK sun plaza? I believe commuters are willing to pay of riding to temporary terminal. We are having hard time getting a bus in baclaran-roxas blvd.
