Tokyo taxis to accept wallet phones
The Tokyo Wireless Taxi Union today announced that they will equip all taxi fleets from member companies with reader/writers to accept payment using DoCoMo wallet phones.
Initially, the taxis will only support the DoCoMo-backed iD credit card scheme but there are also plans to extend it to the ToruCa coupon system.
The wallet phone readers will be installed in around 5,500 taxis and the system should be operational by August this year.
