Digital financial services leader PayMaya is offering commuters, motorists, and travelers a safer and more convenient way to travel as it introduces new cashless purchase options in the PayMaya app. This addition gives users an easier way to pay for their fares and tickets using only their mobile device.
With more public transportation options opening up around the country, having a safe and hygienic way to pay for the fare is critical at this time, especially as the holiday season approaches and more commuters and motorists go out for holiday shopping.
beep QR tickets
Through the newly-launched Travel section in the PayMaya app, commuters can easily purchase beep QR tickets for the BGC Bus which they can use at the Ayala or Market! Market! Stations in Metro Manila as well as at the Topline Express Ferry routes in Cebu.
This means they can easily pre-purchase their tickets even before they arrive at the station and avoid long queues. To do this, all they have to do is tap the “Travel” icon in the PayMaya app, choose the route, origin, and destination from the list, pay the ticket amount, and instantly receive the beep QR ticket, which is valid for 24 hours. The beep QR ticket allows commuters to have the QR code in their phones scanned at the station for validation before boarding, eliminating the need to buy tickets at the station.
“We’re happy to provide yet another way for Filipinos to experience safe travels whether via bus, car, or plane through the PayMaya app. Our partnership with beep for QR tickets for the BGC Bus helps ensure a contact-free way for commuters to pay and avail of public transportation, on top of the other transport modes that we are now making available in the Travel section of the PayMaya app,” said Shailesh Baidwan, President of PayMaya.
Aside from purchasing beep QR tickets for the BGC bus, commuters can also top up their beep cards for use in other transportation lines through the PayMaya app. To do this, all they have to do is follow these simple steps:
- Tap "Treats" on the PayMaya app homepage
- Select a beep card load package
- Input your beep card number, then tap continue
- Wait for a purchase confirmation in-app and via SMS
- Head over to a beep e-load station and tap your card to receive the load package.
RFID reloading and more
With the north and south expressways in Metro Manila going cashless, being able to reload EasyTrip or Autosweep RFID accounts using PayMaya is a big deal. This simplifies the reloading process and makes life a little bit easier for those who need to traverse the expressways.
And for those who are looking to fly, users can now go to the Bills section of the PayMaya app to pay for the flight tickets booked with Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific.
These new payment options for travel are on top of the thousands of ways that PayMaya users can pay for transportation fare in taxis, ride-hailing services, buses, train lines, jeepneys, and even tricycles all around the country.
“We are committed to working with the government through the Department of Transportation, as well as the many transportation service providers all around the country, to enable the entire transport sector chain with seamless cashless payment technologies for the benefit of the riding public,” Baidwan added.
