ABOUT CAVITE (PROVINCE)

Cavite, officially the Province of Cavite (Tagalog: Lalawigan ng Kabite; Chabacano: Provincia de Cavite), is one of the 5 provinces in Calabarzon region in Luzon, Philippines.

For over 300 years, the province played an important role in both the country's colonial past and eventual fight for independence, earning it the title "Historical Capital of the Philippines".

Originally an agricultural province, its northern cities of Bacoor, Imus, and Dasmariñas are now suburbs of Manila due to increasing urbanization in the late 1900s. This province forms part of the Greater Manila Area.

Just like the Metro Manila, Cavite's mode of transportation is mostly via public utility vehicle such as jeepneys (PUJ) and buses (PUB). Some of the inner areas of each cities and municipalities use tricycle as an alternative transportation.

The biggest change in Cavite's transportation is the extension of LRT1 where it caters some of entry points in Bacoor.

Emilio Aguinaldo Highway

Aguinaldo Highway, also known as Cavite–Batangas Road and Cavite-Manila South Road, is a four-to-six lane, 41.4-kilometer, the most commonly used road in Cavite.

Cavite's transport infrastructure has not kept in pace with the mushrooming of industrial and commercial activities resulting to quilts of urban sprawl, traffic congestion and increased road accidents. The section of Aguinaldo Highway (in Bacoor, Imus and Dasmarinas) serving as a major link between the province and the national capital Manila is currently experiencing traffic volume 20% in excess of its designed capacity.

Some of the expressways you can use going to, from and around Cavite are the SLEX, CALAX and CAVITEX.

Main terminal of transportation to Cavite is found at PITX.
