Contactless transactions will soon be possible for non-beep card holders who use trains in Metro Manila. The Light Rail Manila Corporation has just presented proof-of-concept for its QR Ticketing Project, and the company is targeting implementation by the first quarter of 2022. The project, which the Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) is working on with AF Payments, allows commuters to use QR codes instead of Single-Journey Tickets. These QR tickets are generated online and can be purchased via various mobile banking and payment apps.

Here's how the LRT-1's QR-code tickets will work:

To generate QR tickets, commuters only need to enter specific details of the trip such as the origin and destination, then pay the corresponding fare. The QR tickets generated will be scanned by the QR-acceptance terminals installed at LRT-1 stations. The LRMC aims to help commuters travel faster and safer through this initiative. It is also part of the company's efforts to promote contactless payments amid the pandemic.
