Ceres Liner launches Automated Fare Collection System (AFCS)

June 14, 2021 – Vallacar Transit Inc. (VTI), operator of the Ceres Liner buses launched their Automated Fare Collection System (AFCS) for their pilot route from Bacolod to Victorias, Negros Occidental.

The AFCS is a cashless, contactless, and efficient way of collecting fares from passengers making it a more secure payment for commuters, as they no longer need to carry cash to pay for their fares.

The AFCS is a government backed system which was implemented in line with the modernization program of the transport sector under the leadership of President Rodrigo Duterte.

The DOTr also applauds it greatly as the AFCS improves the urban public transit by giving riders more payment options that would also remedy common problems of looking for change in the early mornings.

“They just need to tap theirs cards and enjoy the ride,” says tge Leo Rey Yanson, President and CEO of VTI.

The VTI sees the need for the continuous improvement of the company in terms of convenience, and quality but affordable service for the riding public as embodied in the legacy of his late father and YGBC founder Ricardo Yanson, Sr.

“We adhere to the modernization program of the transport sector under the leadership of President Rodrigo Duterte. The pandemic cannot stop us from delivering good service to our stakeholders,” Yanson said.

The tap cards will be distributed free of charge to the riding public, but commuters will have to “load” their cards at the terminal booth.

“In the future, we will be giving rebates to the passengers or exploring the possibility of loyalty award points to maximize the riding experience of our passengers,” says Yanson.
