Angkas to implement cashless payments
Motorcycle taxi firm Angkas prepares to implement cashless transactions with the help of financial service providers and e-payment firms, according to a report by Manila Times.
Its chief transportation advocate George Royeca said the company was finalizing discussions with banks and digital payment providers to develop Angkas’ cashless shift.
“Credit and debit cards are readily available. The app is ready for cashless,” he told a virtual briefing late on Friday.
Royeca noted that Angkas would also tap the services of mobile wallets GCash and PayMaya.
Last week, the government gave the go signal for the resumption of the motorcycle taxi pilot run.
The Angkas official said its 30,000 partner-bikers were ready to serve commuters in Metro Manila.
He gave assurances that riders were equipped and trained on the proper disinfection of bikes after every trip.
Registered motorcycle bikers ceased their operations in March when Metro Manila was put under lockdown because of the Coronavirus disease.
Transportation regulators have yet to issue guidelines on the resumption of the pilot run.
