Through this new service, you may not need to have cash on hand and be able to skip the long queues at the ticket booth. This matters a lot these days as it can be an effective way to make your daily journey using public transport much safer and seamless.

Long before the pandemic, beep has aggressively partnered with various transport operators and groups to promote cashless rides across Metro Manila and nearby provinces. In October 2019, it was the first to roll out the QR code transport ticketing system in the country (also in partnership with GCash).

“Through our partnership with GCash, passengers will now have an efficient and cashless way of paying that will make commuting a more pleasant experience for them,” said Sharon G. Fong, Chief Commercial Officer of AF Payments Inc., the firm behind beep cards. “beep will continue to actively roll out mobile QR acceptance in various transport networks and more partner-operators in the coming months.”

Meanwhile, GLife continues to expand its capabilities to include more services for modern consumers. Through this GCash feature, app users can shop from various grocery stores, restaurants, gadget and beauty brands, and more.
