LRT, MRT riders may now load beepcards via Coins.ph
AF Payments Inc., a joint venture between Ayala Corp. and Metro Pacific Investments Corp., has partnered with Coins.ph, , the leading digital wallet and mobile payments app to enable commuters to load their beep cards using their smartphones.
“Coins.ph provides beep cardholders the ability to load their cards anytime, anywhere just by tapping their card on their smartphone. This added convenience means no more falling in line to add load during the busy rush hour,” said Peter Maher, president and chief executive of AF Payments.
More than four million beep cardholders are expected to benefit.from this.
“Each day, nearly two million Filipinos are forced to wait in long lines to top up their beep cards with cash,” said Ron Hose, chief executive of Coins.ph.
To enjoy the new service, users simply have to download the latest Coins.ph app in the Google Play Store and register or log in to their account. They can load as little as P10 on their beep card and there is no extra fee.
The beep card is the new contactless payment solution developed to make the payment process more convenient across all three rail lines (LRT 1, LRT2 and MRT3) as it allows seamless transfers from one rail to another.
