Corporate travelers can now pay their fares via Google Pay as Cabcharge officially rolled out its Digital Pass on Android. 

According to  Cabcharge, this represents another milestone in its drive towards digital payments innovation following the launch of Digital Pass on Apple Pay last July. Android users who have installed Lollipop (Android 5.0) or higher can activate Digital Pass on Google Pay.

Digital Pass makes travel payments much more convenient, with the eTickets emailed straight to the user’s smartphone, hence eliminating the need to collect new tickets or receipts when hopping in and out of taxis.

“Journey information is captured by the organisation issuing the Digital Pass, so corporate travelers don’t need to worry about claiming receipts and managing expenses,” Cabcharge said.

Cabcharge’s head of corporate accounts Todd Shipp said that research had “found the top frustration for corporate travelers is collecting and expensing receipts”.

“This practice is outdated, yet still occurs in more than half of businesses throughout Australia”, he said.

“The Cabcharge Digital Pass removes time-consuming and costly expense management altogether.”

Businesses should consider Digital Pass simply because it will help them customise the time and cost of each travel ticket in order to maximise efficiency and ensure the legitimacy of each journey. 

The launch of Digital Pass is meant to provide Australian travellers with simple, fast, and frictionless payment experience with a simple tap.
