How Much Does a Beep™ Card Cost?

A beep™ card comes with a one-time card fee of P30 when purchased at train stations. However, if you’re buying it outside the train stations or at private terminals, the price may vary from P50 to P150. It’s important to note that the card is reloadable and remains valid for four years, with an option to extend its validity for an additional year.

Why is the Price Different in Rail Stations and in Private Terminals?

The variance in pricing is due to government subsidies provided for cards sold at train stations and public transport terminals. These subsidies help keep the cost lower for commuters. On the other hand, cards sold at private terminals are priced higher to reflect the absence of government support.
