AF Payments President and CEO Peter Maher told SDN — Science and Digital News then that they were expanding the uses of the beep card beyond the rails.

He was referring to its traditional use in the Philippines for currently the three lines of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) — I, II and III — and Metro Rail Transit (MRT).

He said beep card is now expanding to non-transportation sector and reach more users.

“Well, it’s really extending the uses of beep card outside of the rails. So, it’s going to be more bus lines, more jeepney lines. We are very excited with the modernization program for the jeep, we hope to be a big part of that,” Maher said.

The beep™ card can be used in all three elevated railways of LRT-1, LRT-2, and MRT-3, select bus lines, and CAVITEX. A beep card is selling for Php20 each, and is OK for reloading up to Php10,000. (EKU)
