MANILA - Operations of the Paranaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX) will be suspended in compliance with the Luzon-wide COVID-19 quarantine, the Department of Transportation said Tuesday.

The enhanced community quarantine called for a halt to mass public transport including buses, UV Express, jeepneys and taxis. The aim is to encourage people to stay in their homes.

"Dahil sa enhanced community quarantine na ipinatutupad ngayon sa buong Luzon, pansamantala munang itinitigil ang operasyon ng PITX until further notice," the DOTr said in an advisory.

Passengers coming from the South, including Cavite, Laguna and Batangas, use PITX to transfer to city buses and other modes of transport.
