With COVID-19 cases continuously increasing in the country, commuting has drastically changed. Everyone has been looking for ways to go for contactless and cashless fare payments, but while trains, ride-hailing companies, and point-to-point bus lines have long had options for these, other public utility vehicles are just starting.
The good news is that apps are now available to answer this need. PayMaya is now more available for commuters as well as transport services, through the help of the LTFRB, LTO, and the DOTr—that means, for as long as a tricycle or a jeepney driver has the right Paymaya app installed, you can easily transfer your pamasahe without contact.
Aside from the PayMaya app you’re familiar with, the company currently has PayMaya Negosyo for QR and online payments, PayMaya Touch for storefront credit card payments, One by Paymaya for NFC contactless payments, and several others.
The roll-out of cashless payments in PUVs is currently ongoing, so download the app and just ask about cashless payment once you board! Hopefully, more vehicles start going the contactless route.
Still haven't downloaded the PayMaya app? Here's everything you need to know about it.
