The mission of management of the Davao City Overland Transport Terminal (DCOTT), is to contribute to the revenue generation efforts of the City Government of Davao by providing opportune and competent management decisions and programs that could improve terminal operations, and offer better services for the patronizing public.
The idea of DCOTT was conceived in 1979, planned and designed in 1981 to 1983 which was considered a component project of the Regional Cities Development Program.
Construction of the Terminal commenced in March of 1985 under the supervision of the then Ministry of Public Works and Highways and completed 9 months later, in December 27 of the same year.
It was turned over and accepted by the City Government of Davao by the then City Mayor Elias B. Lopez on March 15, 1986 just a few days after the Edsa Revolution.
DCOTT is also the area where the former Pres. Aquino campaigned for the ratification of the 1987 Constitution, when more than 50,000 people converged from all over Mindanao
