PUTRAJAYA: Touch ‘n Go eWallet has announced the second phase of its #JOMTEKSI initiative which sees several new programmes being introduced, all with the aim to provide a more inclusive ecosystem for taxi drivers while also providing passengers with an additional mobility option.
At the launch event, Transport Minister Anthony Loke said, "Not only does Touch ‘n Go eWallet improve payment experiences by going cashless, but they have shown tremendous commitment to transforming the taxi ecosystem with #JOMTEKSI.
"The ministry is positive that through the continuation of the #JOMTEKSI initiative, the rakyat will not only benefit from a more systematic ecosystem but this will ensure the taxi industry continues to soar.”
Among the programmes introduced are refurbishment of five taxi stands within Putrajaya and Cyberjaya area. The refurbished taxi stands are located at Putrajaya Sentral, D’Pulze, Tamarind Square, Shaftsbury Square and in front of LimKokWing University in Cyberjaya. Through the refurbishment, Touch ‘n Go eWallet hopes to encourage the public to use the designated areas.
Each of the stands will be equipped with USB ports to keep their mobile devices charged, and solar panels to power up theUSB ports and light up the taxi stands at night.
The 22 taxis belonging to the #JOMTEKSI ambassadors will also be equipped with 4G Wi-Fi connectivity, supportedby YES 4G.
Other than the 22 #JOMTEKSI ambassadors, there are now more than 6,000 taxi drivers in Malaysia who have opted to adopt Touch ‘n Go eWallet as a cashless payment method.
Through #JOMTEKSI, each of these taxi drivers will earn an additional incentive of RM4 for each passenger that uses Touch ‘n Go eWallet to make payment for the first time.
In conjunction with the launch, users will receive a RM3 flag fall cashback if payment is made via the Touch ‘n Go eWallet to any of the 6,000 #JOMTEKSI drivers.
The cashback promotion is applicable to any destination within Malaysia and is available starting from today until June 12 next year.
