beep operator AF Payments Inc. announced that QR ticket acceptance is going live in four partner bus lines: BGC Bus, TAS Trans, Precious Grace Transport Services, and San Agustin Transport. These cover several areas in the cities of Taguig, Makati, and Las Piñas, as well as the provinces of Cavite, Laguna, and Bulacan.
beep continues to expand its use of QR technology that it pioneered in the transport sector. It has partnered with GCash to allow commuters to generate their own prepaid beep QR ticket anytime anywhere eliminating the need to line up to buy tickets in select routes.
To do this:
- Log in to your GCash app
- Tap GLife and select “beep” from the list of partners
- Select among the four bus operators, then choose your route, as well as starting and destination terminals. Your fare will automatically be computed.
- After reviewing the details, tap “Buy Ticket” and complete your payment.
- Click the Ticket History to view your QR ticket or take a screenshot, which you can scan on the reader at the bus terminal or upon entering the bus.
The available routes include:
- East Route
- Central Route
- West Route
- Weekend Route
Precious Grace Transport Services
- Cay Pombo-North
San Agustin Transport
- Las Piñas-Makati
- Makati-Las Piñas
Note that the app can only generate one ticket per transaction. Simply repeat the process if commuters want to generate another. Each ticket must be used within 24 hours from the date and time of purchase, or it will be forfeited without a refund. There is no service fee for generating a QR ticket, but a minimal convenience fee may be charged.
