The taxi motorbikes will be marked with the Vodafone and Plať mobilem (Pay by Mobile) logos. To support the new service, its provider the Erika company will hold a contest for Vodafone 845 smartphones with prepaid Vodafone cards and for free motorbike rides in Prague. “For a long time, we have been supporting innovative services and projects introducing mobile payment to make life easier for our customers.

“For a long time, we have been supporting innovative services and projects introducing mobile payment to make life easier for our customers. Further to the success of SMS tickets and SMS parking fee, we are now launching SMS payment for taxi rides with the TAXI MOTO company. Being granted the same price as if they paid in cash, our customers won´t have to worry about cash in their wallets. The motorbikes labeled with the Plať mobilem logo will promote the brand and mobile payment in general,” says Viktor Nábělek, the Marketing Manager for Mobile Payment at Vodafone.

“By introducing SMS payment for our services, we oblige our customers because there has been a great demand for such service for a long time,” says Martin Šebesta of TAXI MOTO. “We are glad that it was Vodafone which supported our effort and made a deal with us,” he adds.

Payment by SMS for the services of the TAXI MOTO company is available to customers of all three mobile operators. However, only Vodafone customers will be granted the same price as for cash payment, for other customers the price will be slightly higher depending on tariff zones.

The service is provided by the Erika, a.s. company.
