Pay For Taxi Rides with Octopus
Hailing taxis on the street or ordering taxis via eTaxi, FlyTaxi or WETAXI
Now you can pay taxi fares with Octopus in designated taxis. Once taxi drivers install the Octopus App for Business on their mobile phones, turning them into Octopus Readers. When you hail a taxi on the street or order a taxi with local taxi-hailing apps such as eTaxi, Fly Taxi and WETAXI, you can simply place your Octopus card at the NFC detection area, either at the back of the driver's mobile phone or on the screen of Octopus Mobile POS to pay the fare. Alternatively, scan a driver's QR code to pay through your Octopus Wallet, to enjoy the quick and simple Octopus payment experience.
