DOTR, GCash tie up on cashless payments

The Department of Transportation has teamed up with GCash and other digital payment providers to boost the use of cashless or contactless transactions to further curb the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The agency tied up with GCash to enable taxi drivers to accept digital payments through the revolutionary Scan to Pay app via the QR technology of GCash.

Using the app, GCash users only need to scan the unique QR code of the taxi unit they are riding in paying for their metered fares.

“Cashless and contactless payment scheme will now be part of the ‘new normal’ in the public transportation system. This should not be treated by taxi operators as another transaction cost,” DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade said.
