The contactless payment system will be available on routes operated by MBMJ and UY Transport Services Incorporated and RSJ Lines Incorporated including the Alijis – Central Market Loop, the Bata – Libertad Loop, and the PHHC Homesite – Central Market route.
Additionally, travellers using these routes will be able to register their AFC cards on the beep app to monitor use and earn rewards points. The points can be used for payments on LRT1, LRT2, MRT3 and Bacolod buses.
AF Payments is a consortium comprising Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC) and Ayala Corporation that operates contactless payment systems in the Philippines, including the beep card.
