Cebu (CNN Philippines, September 22) — One of Metro Cebu's biggest operators of modern jeepneys launched tap technology or RFID (radio frequency identification) cashless payment option for commuters.

People's Jeep, operated by the Cebu People's Multipurpose Cooperative (CPMC), partnered with digital payments company Maya to come up with a card which can be used to pay fares in over 200 modern jeepneys across Metro Cebu. The card costs ₱150 apiece.

Passengers can use the card to pay fares for modern jeepneys plying routes in Cebu City, Mandaue City, Lapu-Lapu City, Naga City, and in the towns of Minglanilla and Liloan.

Upon boarding a People's Jeep, a passenger assistance officer will enter the trip details on the point-of-sale (POS) device. The passenger will verify the details and tap the card on the POS, generating a receipt for each successful transaction.

CPMC President and CEO Brian Yap said the card is reflective of Cebu's commitment to adopt "forward-thinking urban transportation solutions."

"By merging cutting-edge cashless technology with a strong focus on passenger comfort, safety, and environmental sustainability, this initiative is redefining urban mobility in the city," he said.

The cards are available at the Cebu IT Park terminal and can be topped off with credits through Good Kredit App and soon via Maya digital wallet.
