Verifone Way2ride

Just get in. Tap. And get out.
It’s that easy!

The New Way to Ride in Taxis

Verifone’s Way2ride is a consumer-facing mobile app that makes the taxi experience faster and easier. Being delivered by Verifone initially in the New York City area, the Way2ride app allows consumers to pay for their taxi rides with any smartphone at any point during the ride, applying pre-set preferences such as credit card, tip, and receipt. Riding taxis was never that easy and simple.

Secure and Easy Mobile Payments

Way2ride allows riders to pre-load payment information and preferred tip amounts. Once inside the cab, passengers can pay at any time during the ride by simply tapping their phone against the payment screen. At the end of the trip, riders can simply get out of the taxi and get on with their day. Digital receipts are stored in the app and accessible at way2ride.com for easy tagging and expensing of business trips. 

Zoosh Sound Technology

The Way2ride app uses Verifone’s patented Zoosh sound-based technology to check passengers into their individual ride, allowing for secure transmission of payment information through the cloud. Way2ride is Verifone’s first commercial deployment of the Zoosh technology, which utilizes the speakers and microphones of smartphones to securely exchange encrypted data between devices allowing app developers to unlock the potential of non-NFC smartphones to deliver single-tap functionality alongside their NFC solutions.

An Open Platform for App Developers

Way2ride is built on Verifone’s open API cloud platform, which enables developers to easily create apps with secure payment, messaging and other value-added services leveraging Verifone’s secure mobile commerce network. Verifone’s open API cloud platform currently supports taxi and for-hire vehicle implementations (e.g., in-taxi interactions). Future releases will address additional verticals, such as petroleum (e.g., interactions in the C-store and at the pump).
