- Beep Card Reloading – Now Available at Bayad Center
Spending so much of your time just to purchase / reload your train ticket?
The contactless tap-and-go beep cards used on Metro Manila's 3 railway lines may now be reloaded at select Bayad Center outlets around the metro.
Just recently, AF Payments, Incorporated announced that it has partnered with Bayad Center to allow commuters to reload their beep cards at select outlets within Bayad Center's payment collection network. This partnership ultimately provides convenience to train commuters, since Bayad Center’s network covers virtually all of Metro Manila.
For its initial implementation, commuters may now reload their cards at 70 Bayad Center outlets, strategically located near train stations. These include branches of Tambunting Pawnshop, Villarica Pawnshop, and SM Business Centers. In the coming months, the rest of the Bayad Center outlets and the retail establishments they power with their payment collection system shall also be activated for beep card reloading.
"The 1.5 million daily train riders are the same people who trust Bayad Center for their bills. With more than 1,000 payment collection sites within Metro Manila alone, we are confident that Bayad Center can help our commuters in their daily grind," Bayad Center CEO Manuel Lorenzo Tuason said.
"After the full implementation in all 3 rail lines, our second order of business is expanding our loading network. We are committed to helping commuters save time, and an important part of this is to find convenient loading points outside of the stations. Bayad Center is the perfect starting point because of their huge network, covering virtually all of Metro Manila," AF Payments CEO Peter Maher said.
AF Payments, Inc. is the consortium behind the unified ticketing system used on the Metro Rail Transit 3 (MRT3) and Lines 1 and 2 of the Light Rail Transit (LRT). The automated fare collection system went live on the 3 railway networks in the latter half of 2015.
Bayad Center is the country’s pioneer and leader in the outsourced payment collection industry. It continues to blaze the trail in the industry by providing a dependable bills collection solution to its corporate partners and offering the public a reliable and convenient bills payment service.
