AF Payments Inc., the operator of the beep card, announced the successful launch of Maya’s and Light Rail Manila Corp.’s QR payment system in LRT Line 1. The new and convenient payment option—which is enabled by beep’s technology—was warmly received by train commuters, who can now effortlessly purchase QR codes through their smart phones.
“The overwhelming adoption of QR since the service’s launch demonstrates commuters’ willingness to embrace more diverse payment options that facilitate faster and more convenient commute. Alongside the tap-in and tap-out functionality of beep cards, QR offers an excellent alternative to Single Journey Ticket users, allowing them to skip the lines and enjoy faster travel times,” said AF Payments president and chief executive JJ Moreno.
“The core mission of AF Payments, Inc. is to provide commuters with convenient, fast, and secure payment solutions, transforming daily commuting into a more efficient, productive, and pleasant experience for everyone,” he said.
LRT 1 QR tickets, valid for 24 hours, may be conveniently purchased through the Maya and LRMC’s ikotMNL apps and eventually through the beep app.
