San Jose, Calif. - VeriFone Systems Inc. is making its Way2ride sound-based mobile app for smartphones available to taxi passengers in Philadelphia. Way2ride enables Philadelphia passengers to tap and pay for cab fares in 1,400 of the 1,600 taxi cabs currently operating in the city.
Passengers can download the free Way2ride app to their iOS or Android smartphones and pre-load payment information and preferred tip amounts. Digital receipts are immediately emailed to the passenger and stored in the app and online portal for access and expensing of business trips.
“The launch of Way2ride in nearly every cab operating in the city of Philadelphia is a result of the considerable success it has experienced following the app’s initial launch in New York City,” said Amos Tamam, senior VP of taxi systems for VeriFone.
