It’s been a year since Beep card was launched to the public. It experienced some hiccups during its trial period but as the system and the riding public became more acquainted, they finally got along. Although, we must admit there’s still a long way to go.
Good news comes as according to the President and CEO of AF Payment Inc., the PPP (Public-Private Partnership) company handling the automated fare system, they are now looking into convenience stores as additional reloading stations . Also, they are planning to use the Beep card as cashless payment for fast food chains and grocery stores.
If you’d ask us, this is what the Beep should already have been. In order for the public to fully appreciate it, they should be able to use not just in our dilapidated train systems. Good thing a few bus companies are already accepting Beep as part of the unification.
