PayMaya partnered with the Department of Transportation and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board to deploy cashless payments platforms to help transportation service providers utilize contactless payments to curb the further spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

These include UBE Express, which provides point-to-point and airport shuttle services, hirna and EKR Taxi services, and ride-hailing platform Hype, which now accepts secure and convenient card and QR payments. For delivery services, PayMaya has partnered with Lalamove and other major platforms.

The public can also enjoy cashless payments in gas stations like Petron, Shell, SEAOIL, Unioil, Cleanfuel, RePhil, and other major fuel retailers using PayMaya One all-in-one Point-of-sale device through card or e-wallet apps.

The Land Transportation Office will also soon allow those who will apply or renew their motor vehicle registrations to use cashless payments.

Commuters won’t also need to worry about loading their beep cards with sufficient balance since there are PayMaya terminals and PayMaya QR-enabled vehicles where they can top-up using their credit, debit, or prepaid cards.

"Our complete suite of cashless payment solutions can help empower all modes of transportation, from tricycle drivers, to jeepneys, all the way to premium taxis, buses, and other forms of mass transportation around the country," said PayMaya’s Enterprise Head for the Public Sector Marvin Santos.

The PayMaya app is available for free download from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. For more information on how to register your own account, visit
