The Taguig Integrated Terminal Exchange (TIXT), also known as TITE, is an intermodal transport terminal currently under construction in Arca South, Taguig. It is primarily a bus terminal for buses going to and from southern Luzon[3], Visayas, and Mindanao but connected to the FTI station and the proposed Metro Manila Subway[2].

History[edit]

In August 2014, five companies bought bid documents for a public-private partnership project of proposed integrated transport terminal in FTI. The five companies were given until October 2014 to submit their bids to finance, build, operate, and maintain the proposed terminal[3]. It was then announced in January 2016 that Ayala Land won the project in November 2015[1].

Construction[edit]

Initially, the construction was supposed to begin on September 2016[1], but the groundbreaking ceremony was held in January 2018. The terminal is expected to be operational by 2020[2]. The estimated cost of the project stands at P5.20 billion.
