Automated Fare Collection System (AFCS)

An Automated Fare Collection System (AFCS) using new contactless smart card as fare medium is being utilized in both the LRT Line 1 and LRT Line 2 Systems . The old magnetic ticket fare collection system of LRT Lines 1 & 2 was totally replaced with the new contactless smartcard based AFCS starting 16 December 2015, through the Department of Transportations’ PPP for the Automatic Fare Collection System Project for LRT Lines 1 & 2 and MRT3. The Common Ticketing Project for LRTA Lines 1 & 2 and MRT3 under Public-Private Partnership (PPP) program is a joint venture between the government and private organization led by Ayala and Metro Pacific. This new AFCS project replaced of the old-magnetic-based ticketing system installed in early 2000 and replacing the old system with contactless-based smart card technology on LRTA Lines 1 & 2 and MRT3.
