Readings Black cabs to start taking card payment as new regulation comes into force

A change to licensing regulations will mean that January 2nd 2019 all Black cabs in Reading will have to be credit card enabled.

In a move which echos the London taxi industry, all of Reading's fleet of taxis will be required to display signage inside the vehicle stating that passengers can now pay by debit and credit card, as well as mobile phone tap and pay.

Again, reflecting the London taxi industry's conditions of fitness, which is imposed on the trade by TfL, Reading's licensing committee are requiring that all of the credit card systems installed into taxis must be units which have been approved by the council.

The implementation of the scheme was approved last June by Reading Borough Council, and will see drivers having to foot the bill for the supply and fitting of the units.
