To those going to, from, and around the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig by BGC Bus will now have a more convenient and worry-free time. That’s because AF Payments, Inc., the company behind the Beepcard tap-and-go payment system for buses and mass transport services, has partnered with GCash, the leading app-based payment service, to come up with a new kind of payment and ticketing system that’s both convenient and safe.
By capitalizing on the technology of QR codes (Quick Response codes), riders will be able to book bus tickets and pay for them in a snap using their smartphones installed with the latest version of the GCash app.
How it works
In addition to using beep™ card and beep™-powered Topline Express Ferries cards, commuters now have the option to buy QR code based tickets that the commuter will scan before boarding the bus or ferry. The new system will replace manually validated paper ticketing to ensure quicker validation and a hassle-free commuter experience. Additionally, AF Payments is bringing in the convenience of mobile payments. In partnership with GCash, passengers of BGC Bus & Topline Express Ferries can now pay their fare using the GCash mobile app.
How to Pay using GCash: At the ticket counter, open the GCash app on your smartphone. Choose Pay QR, generate your own QR code, and scan the QR code on the beep QR Reader. Your QR ticket will automatically print and the fare will be deducted from your GCash account.
