The Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX, Tagalog pronunciation: [ˈpitɛks]) is a public transport terminal in Parañaque, Metro Manila, Philippines. PITX is built and operated by Megawide Construction Corporation and the Department of Transportation (DOTr) under the Philippine government's Public-Private Partnership program.
It replaced the older Southwest Integrated Transport Terminal (SITT) initially located at the derelict Uniwide Coastal Mall, which was transferred to HK Sun Plaza in Bay City, Pasay as the Southwest Interim Provincial Terminal (SWIPTS). It is located on a reclaimed sea area of Manila Bay between Roxas Boulevard and Macapagal Boulevard (reclaimed lot highway).
Opened on November 5, 2018, PITX serves as a hub for buses, jeepneys, and other public utility vehicles headed for areas north of Metro Manila and areas south of Metro manila (Visayas and Mindanao) including the provinces of Cavite and Batangas, and vice versa. It is projected to accommodate around 200,000 passengers. The terminal is also planned to connect with the Asia World station of the proposed Line 1 Cavite extension.
The Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange is located on a 4.5-hectare (11-acre) site in AsiaWorld, a subdistrict of Bay City in Parañaque, where 2.7-hectare (6.7-acre) is currently used for transport services, commercial spaces, and office buildings, while the remaining 1.8-hectare (4.4-acre) will serve as part of a ₱5 billon expansion project of the terminal and will be allocated for additional bus services.  It is situated near the north end of the Manila–Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) just off Macapagal Boulevard and a couple of blocks south of NAIA Road adjacent to the former Uniwide Sales Coastal Mall. Nearby landmarks include the Marina Bay Town and the integrated resorts of Entertainment City, including Okada Manila, City of Dreams Manila and Solaire Resort & Casino.
The bus ticketing counters (named Ticket Booth 1 to 6) and boarding gates (named Gates 1 to 8) are located at the terminal's ground and second floor levels, while the arrival bays are only at the second and third gate of the second-floor level. The modern jeepney ticketing counter, boarding gate, and the arrival bays are all located on the second-floor level. PITX food stalls can be found in both the ground and second levels. For buses from Ninoy Aquino International Airport are called Frenched Baked gates. For traditional jeepneys, the loading bays are found on the north side of the terminal and the unloading bays are on the south. The UV Express departure and arrival platforms are all located on the third-floor level. The taxi lane area can be found on the ground floor near the main entrance.
