  • In a report published by Business World, Manila North Tollways Corporation (MNTC), operator of North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx), plans to start accepting beep™ and PayMaya cards as cashless payment method by the first quarter of 2017.

    The beep™ card is a stored value smart card used to provide easy and cashless payments in transportation vehicles, as well as in selected convenience store  and expressway. Earlier this year, it was officially used at the Manila-Cavite Expressway (Cavitex).

    Meanwhile, Paymaya cards, particularly the Paymaya Visa with beep, can be used to shop online and ride trains. Paymaya is a free app that gives a virtual Visa Card and functions like a credit card at stores where Visa is accepted.

    According to Romulo S. Quimbo, Jr., MNTC senior vice president for legal, regulatory and government regulations, “beep™ and PayMaya testing is ongoing. NLEx will start by early next year or January, while SCTEx to follow after but safe to say in the first quarter.”
