The days of having to break change or fishing for coins in your pocket when you have to pay your cab fare will soon be over as TNG Digital Sdn Bhd is teaming up with EzCab and Public Cab taxis to allow users to pay via their Touch ‘n Go eWallet.

What this means for KL commuters reliant on cabs to get about is that you can simply use your smartphone and the Touch ‘n Go eWallet to pay for your cab rides. The method is exceptionally simple – all you need to do is to scan the provided QR code on your phone from the cab driver and key in your authorisation pin to pay him.

To date there are 4,000 EZCab and other independent taxi drivers who have embraced Touch ‘n Go eWallet’s QR code based payment method, with more 10,000 cabs to embrace the system by year end.

To incentivise adoption, Touch ‘n Go eWallet has also distributed 100 eWallet reload pins worth RM8 each to cab drivers to distribute to their passengers with each activation of each pin earning RM4 for the driver; assuming that the user is a first time adopter of the Touch ‘n Go eWallet of course.

To sign up for the programme, cab drivers can SMS or Whatsapp +6019 331 8643 (TNG Digital). If you’re on the other side of the fence, downloading the Touch ‘n Go eWallet app is free for Android and iOS platforms. For more on the app and the service swing by here.
