Light Rail to launch Bayad Center sa LRT-1
Under this partnership, bills payment is made easier and more accessible for LRT-1 commuters with over 300 types of bills accepted from utilities, telecommunications and cable, government contributions and loan payments, travel, and airline ticketing companies. LRT-1 Balintawak station is the pilot site for the Bayad Center sa LRT-1. A ticket booth will be transformed into a Bayad Center lane where commuters can pay their bills. The Bayad Center sa LRT-1 at Balintawak Station will be open to the public by December 2020. Bill payments can be made daily from 6AM to 7PM, and only cash payments will be accepted for the meantime. LRMC and Bayad Center made their partnership official in a virtual signing ceremony of its Memorandum of Agreement on 18 November 2020. “We, at LRMC, are in the business of not only bringing people to their destinations, but also fulfilling our service promise of knowing what people need and connecting them to their needs through reliable, comfortable, and convenient transport system. We are glad to finally launch this initiative as it is in line with our goal is to make the LRT-1 network a one-stop-shop for our commuters’ needs—not just their need to travel through Metro Manila,” said LRMC President and CEO Juan F. Alfonso.
