The cab is probably the most comfortable option when it comes to public transport, but it comes with its own hefty price-tag. And nothing can be more annoying than catching a ride on a cab which does not accept cashless payments. Thankfully, TransCabs has a solution to that problem: a new reader which accepts most forms of cashless payments, including the current widely-used ez-link.

TransCab Taxi Goes EZ with New All-in-One Payment Terminal
By EZ-Link

TransCab taxis readied to handle cashless payment with the first EZ-Link terminal that accepts up to 9 payment methods

SINGAPORE – Customers of TransCab taxis will now be spoilt for choice
when it comes to cashless payment of their fares, with the launch of the new EZ-Link terminal
that offers the most variety of e-payment options for customers to choose from, within a single
terminal. More than 90% of TransCab taxis have each been equipped with the new terminal that
accepts the ez-link card and 8 other payment modes.

The payment methods include the ez-link card, MasterCard, MasterCard PayPass, VISA, VISA
payWave, China Union Payment, JCB and American Express and DBS/POSB card. Through this
terminal, EZ-Link makes the paying process easier for passengers of TransCab taxis.

Passengers can enjoy the ease of payment at a small administrative fee for every transaction
made. The fee structure is 30 cents for payments made by an ez-link card and DBS/POSB card,
and 10% of the total fare for payments made by all credit and debit cards.

As an introduction to this service, EZ-Link and TransCab will waive the 30 cent surcharge on all
ez-link card payments made on-board TransCab taxis from 1 October 2010 to 2 January 2011.
This simply means that passengers will not be required to pay any additional surcharges when
they choose to go cashless and pay with their ez-link cards during this period.
