23/03/2017 CityFox Group rolls out card, contactless and Apple Pay systems in Bristol.
Market leading Bristol taxi operator CityFox (owned by CityFox Group) has taken a further step in making taxi travel in the city more convenient, by equipping its fleet with card machines.
The new readers enable passengers to pay for their journeys using credit or debit cards, including contactless payment and Apple Pay.
Launching the new readers, CityFox Group Managing Director Rhys Hand said, "the days of taxi passengers having to remember to carry cash or delay their journeys to find a cash machine are no more. The taxi industry needs to adapt to the demands of modern day lifestyles and with this investment we are leading the way."
The introduction of card readers is one of a series of initiatives aimed at keeping CityFox at the cutting edge of the city's public transport offer - initiatives including the development of a smartphone app, WiFi and introduction of an electric car.
