VeriFone Selected By Radio Taxis Group


VeriFone in-taxi payment system set to win over

customers with secure and convenient card payments

VeriFone is working with Radio Taxis Group (RTG) to deliver a next generation payment solution across RTG’s fleet of licensed London taxis. The deal, which will mean that more than 2000 systems will have been installed in the RTG fleet by June 2012, will make RTG one of the largest single users of VeriFone’s TfL-approved payments platform in the UK.


Offering customers a more convenient way to pay, VeriFone Taxi Solutions (VTS) will allow RTG fleets (Radio Taxis and Xeta) to accept contactless as well as traditional debit and credit cards. The system is also fully future-proofed to accept EMV payments directly from a tap of an NFC-enabled mobile phone against the reader in each taxi.

RTG anticipates that the fully integrated payments system, which includes a passenger-compartment card acceptance device and digital passenger screen, will be quicker and easier to use.

Radio Taxis Group Chairman & CEO, Geoffrey Riesel said “Without doubt, card payments are a ‘must have’ for a modern taxi fleet. We want to ensure our drivers have a system that meets their needs and delivers long-term functionality, support and service. VeriFone, a major global player, with access to advanced technology, has the best payment solution which will assist our drivers to increase business in London’s ever more competitive passenger transport market.”

Mark Roberts, Vice President and General Manager, VeriFone Taxi and Media Solutions, comments, “We are working closely with RTG to make sure our system works perfectly for their drivers. This includes ensuring full compatibility with their new state of the art in-cab system; making it easy for RTG drivers to use. With more and more of London’s passengers expecting to pay by card, particularly for out of town and airport runs, it pays to be able to offer flexible and secure payment options.”

RTG’s reputation for speed, efficiency and convenience will now be reinforced as they offer passengers even more ways to pay. The VeriFone card payment system has been fully integrated with the new RTG Zeus touch screen system and is currently being piloted with a full roll out expected in the New Year.
