Passengers can download the Way2ride app to their iOS or Android smartphones online from the App Store, Google Play or, and pre-load payment information and preferred tip amounts. Digital receipts are emailed after the payment to the passenger and stored in the app and online portal.

After the Philadelphia launch, VeriFone is set to continue expanding Way2ride acceptance throughout its network of approximately 70,000 payment-enabled taxis worldwide.
