LRT-1 collaborates with Maya for e-ticket sales

Due to a collaboration between the Light Rail Transit Line 1 (LRT-1) and the online banking application Maya, passengers can purchase single-journey e-tickets.

During the LRT-1’s debut on Thursday at the LRT-1 EDSA Station, Maya, and Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) Chair Manuel V. Pangilinan demonstrated the “end-to-end digitalization” of LRT-1 transactions.

According to Pangilinan, everyone can now benefit from quicker, safer, and more convenient digital transactions thanks to the LRT-1 QR Ticketing project.

By navigating to the ‘Services’ area, selecting the LRT-1 tile under the ‘Lifestyle’ category, and then selecting their preferred route, origin, and destination before paying for the single journey e-ticket using the Maya app, LRT-1 customers can purchase quick response (QR) tickets.

An LRT-1 QR ticket can be used at designated “fast lane” turnstiles with QR scanners at all LRT-1 stations and is good for 24 hours after purchase.

Maya is providing LRT-1 riders one free monthly ride through payback coupons until August 31, 2023, to promote the digital service.

Additionally, the service complies with the contactless payment in public transportation goal set by the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP).

According to LRMC President and CEO Juan Alfonso, the partnership with Maya is cutting-edge technological development for the nation’s railway industry.

“We are proud to lead this initiative as an essential first step in boosting public transportation’s digitalization. According to Alfonso, we are giving our LRT-1 passengers more options through this initiative so they can commute more easily.
