LRT1 adopts QR payment system: Commuter group asks other train operators to maximize QR technology

LRT QR payment system

Transport advocacy network The Passenger Forum today welcomed LRT 1’s adoption of QR technology as an additional payment option for passengers.

According to Primo Morillo, TPF Convener, “This is a good development and it will provide a new cashless option for LRT 1 riders especially now that stored value cards are scarce.”

Morillo added that the QR option is also helpful for commuters who forgot their Beep cards, and when the line for single journey tickets is too long.

“Due to the unavailability of stored value cards, people before have no other choice but to endure the long lines just to get a ticket,” he explained.

“We hope that the MRT, LRT-2, and PNR follow suit and provide a QR payment option for their train lines. We also encourage the DOTr to study how we can maximize this for other transport modes such as buses and modern jeeps,” Morillo said.
