Baguio City launches cashless fare system
Last July 13, 2020, the City Government of Baguio launched a cashless fare collection system at the City Hall flag raising rites. Along with SquidPay Technology Inc. Chief Operating Officer and President Enrico Tamayo, Mayor Benjamin Magalong signed the Memorandum of Agreement that formalizes the terms of the program. SquidPay Account Executive Officer Elmar Panganiban said that they have already conducted seminars with public utility jeepneys, taxis, and UV Express Service associations.
The city has pursued cashless transactions after the alarming rise of COVID-19 cases among transport workers. This new scheme will be using contactless, cashless, and seamless payment transactions through transport cards, near-field communication, or QR codes.
