VeriFone is one of the two companies that lets New York City taxicab riders pay with credit cards. Now VeriFone has launched a mobile payment application that lets users pay with their smartphones. This app is called Way2ride and it is available as a free download. The Way2ride app works on iOS and Android.
VeriFone will eventually integrate Way2ride through their network of 70,000 payment-enabled taxis across the world.
“No more wading through payment screens at the end of the ride. Just scan a credit card with the app, set your tip preference, and you’ll never have to fumble for your wallet again. Your receipts are all saved in the app and online, with a map of your route and tags for submitting expenses. And, with over half the yellow taxis in New York City as members of the Way2ride network already, finding a vacant taxi has never been easier,” states the app’s description.
