Offering more expediency to its patrons, the Araneta Center BusPort (ACBP) has partnered with GCash to add another convenient mode of payment: GCash’s “scan to pay” technology.

Passengers will just have to download the GCash application on their smartphones, register an account and deposit an amount on their digital wallets at any of GCash’s 15,000 partner outlets in the country. They will then just have to tap the “Scan QR (quick response)” code option on the app, point their camera to the QR code available at the ACBP, and pay.

This new option is a testament to Araneta Center’s commitment to making the lives of its patrons more convenient. With another seamless payment scheme available, ACBP passengers who use this option no longer have to go through longer lines and bring large amounts of money to purchase their tickets—safe and practical.

“Araneta Center is always looking for opportunities to make it more convenient for our mostly young and digitally-savvy customers.  GCash provides a powerful and convenient payment method for them to transact on the fly.  We are now able to offer another seamless and efficient cashless payment platform with the use of QR code for over-the-counter transactions in our BusPort,” said John B. Castelo, Araneta Center Inc.’s Senior Vice President for Business Development, who, along with other Araneta Center bigwigs, attended the launch at the ACBP last July 31.

“The GCash QR will enable the Araneta Center BusPort to service its customers with convenient, secured and seamless payment experiences. For instance, with the GCash scan to pay feature at ACBP, customers can easily pay the exact amount for their tickets using their phones. They no longer have to wait for loose change, or even stand in line for a long time,” added Anthony Thomas, President and CEO of Mynt, the operator of GCash.
The new payment option also cements ACBP’s reputation as a one-of-a-kind premium bus terminal in the country.

Boasting of first-rate facilities, reliable security, updated announcements and information, the ultramodern ACBP is the central stopover of those going to and coming from Central Luzon, Southern Luzon, the Bicol region, Visayas, and Mindanao.

 Last June, it started offering to its patrons the availability of booking their trips online and payment of their tickets through their credit cards.
