LRT-1 x Maya QR PaymentsNews

LRT-1 commuters can now buy tickets via Maya app

Passengers taking LRT-1 (Roosevelt-Baclaran) can now purchase their single-journey tickets using Maya, a digital banking app.

Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC), the operator of LRT-1, and Maya, have started implementing the LRT-1 QR Ticketing system. Through LRMC’s ikotMNL app, commuters can scan the generated QR ticket at the dedicated QR terminals located at all LRT-1 Stations.

Passengers can also buy tickets from the Maya app in the Services section under the Lifestyle category.

“This integration offers a fast, seamless, and hassle-free solution to the commuting public. On top of promoting digital transactions, this contactless approach fosters public health and safety — crucial in our present times,” said Shailesh Baidwan, president of Maya Group and co-founder of Maya Bank.

Providing more cashless payment options

Through Maya Business, Maya enables the ikotMNL app to accept digital payments from Maya, other e-wallets, banks, credit, debit, prepaid cards, and soon, QR PH. QR tickets generated are valid for 24 hours from the date of purchase and can be used at all LRT-1 stations from Baclaran to Roosevelt and vice versa. 

“Through this initiative, we are empowering our LRT-1 passengers with more options so that they can commute more conveniently,” said Juan F. Alfonso, president and CEO of LRMC. “We remain steadfast in our commitment to improve the commuter experience and make rail an attractive, affordable, and sustainable transport solution.” 

LRMC is a joint venture company of Metro Pacific Investments Corporation and Sumitomo Corporation’s Metro Pacific Light Rail Corporation (MPLRC), Ayala Corporation’s AC Infrastructure Holdings Corporation (AC Infra), and the Philippine Investment Alliance for Infrastructure’s Macquarie Infrastructure Holdings (Philippines) PTE Ltd. (MIHPL). 

Maya is offering one free LRT-1 ride per month per customer in the form of cashback vouchers. Passengers simply need to purchase their QR tickets within the Maya app to enjoy this benefit until Aug. 31, 2023.
