The Mabuhay Group recently launched its fleet of black taxicabs. More than just a new cab color, the black taxi will debut topnotch technology for public transport in Davao City.
A number of these black taxis will be equipped with cashless payment system. Simply put, you can swipe your Bancnet and Megalink ATM card to pay for your taxi fare! And like some of Mabuhay’s fleet of cabs, the black taxis will also boast of global positioning system (GPS) tracking and computer-controlled dispatching.
These are exciting times for public transportation in Davao City. I guess wireless payments and online taxi dispatch aren’t too far into the future anymore. 🙂
