From 9 November 2020, we will only accept cash or NETS debit for fare payment onboard our taxis. This is due to the news announcement that the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has directed Wirecard entities in Singapore (Wirecard SG) to cease their payment services in Singapore by 14 October 2020, hence affecting our payment terminal.

A Fare Payment Notice sticker has been mailed out on 4 November 2020 to all active taxi hirers for passenger’s information. We appreciate your assistance to paste the sticker at the back of the front passenger’s seat in your taxi. You may refer to the picture below as a guide on where to paste the sticker.
Taxi Share vehicles will have the Fare Payment Notice sticker put up by our roving team starting 5 November 2020 progressively and complete by 30 November 2020.
