"One Card for All!" This is now applicable to the LRT / MRT card as they phased out the previous stored value MRT/LRT card and replaced the card entrance/exit passage.
The Light Rail Transit and the Metropolitan Rail Transit now introduced the new unified card named Beep.
Well unlike the previous card, Beep is reloadable. Yes, you can load whatever amount you want unlike the previous wherein the stored value amount was only 100 pesos max. This card is reusable. You will pay 20 pesos for the Beep card and load whatever amount you want. You can keep it until 4 years since the expiration of this card is up to 4 years.
And unlike the previous card, using it is so easy! You will just need to swipe it in the passage.
Now let's take an up, close, and personal look at this card below:

Well if you don't feel to use this long-term Beep card since you're not a regular LRT/MRT commuter for instance, the single journey card is also available. This is the white card with a label of Single Journey.
Since I'm a regular LRT/MRT commuter, I now have my own Beep card which I availed last month!
LRT Line 1 was the first one to use this Beep card since last week of August 2015. But starting this October 3, 2015, MRT and LRT 2 will also use this. Therefore if you have one Beep card, you can use it all in LRT 1, LRT 2, and MRT without any hassle of buying a different one!
What can you say about this unified card? Did it elevate a solution to the usual LRT/MRT problem?! (RCB)
