South African Taxis to Get Smart Cards

Thursday 7 April 2005 11:36 CET | News

The South African National Taxi Association Council (Santaco) plans to implement, OmniPays Electronic Management System (EMS), for safer commuter fare collections, better management of taxi associations and protection of commuters.

The system, created by SurePaw Technologies, is expected to enhance the control of taxi operating costs. RedPay, an electronic payment and security company, will manage the security requirements associated with the use of electronic payment systems, as well as the associated Reserve Bank and commercial bank requirements. Santaco and SurePaw Technologies are planning a pilot project this year to test the system in about 1 000 taxis.
