Modern Jeep Prototypes, Powered by beep Fare Collection System



AF Payments Inc., the Ayala-Metro Pacific consortium behind beep™ card, brings its automated fare collection system to the 1st Philippine Auto Parts Expo (PhilAPEX). Several of the modern jeepney prototypes on display at the event were furnished with a working beep™ card reader that employs a tap in-tap out scheme. Passengers tap in upon riding, and tap out before alighting. The fare is calculated based on the distance traveled. This is the first ever automated fare collection solution made for jeepneys.

The jeepney prototypes on exhibit are new models that already comply with the Department of Transportation’s jeepney modernization mandate.

Peter Maher, President of AF Payments, said ”We are ready to support the Dept of Transportation’s PUJ modernization program.  We have developed a beep card service that is affordable to jeepney operators and will surely be appreciated by commuters in Metro Manila who have already purchased 4 million beep cards.”

PhilAPEX 2017 was held on October 12-13 at the Philippine Trade Training Center in Pasay City. It was organized by the Department of Trade and Industry, Board of Investments, Department of Transportation, Philippine Parts Maker Association Inc., Mitsubishi Motors, Toyota, and the Automotive Body Manufacturers Association of the Philippines Inc.
