The Mabuhay Group recently launched its fleet of black taxicabs. More than just a new cab color, the black taxi will debut topnotch technology for public transport in Davao City.Black-Taxi-600x450

The transport innovation was the idea of Pierre Ryan Tan, assistant manager of Mabuhay Taxi, who thought of addressing the passengers' common complaints against taxi drivers who do not give exact change. 
The taxis will accept payments from Bancnet and Megalink ATM and debit cards. 

The cabs are also safer for passengers because they have a Global Positioning System tracking device that will automatically give information on the current location of the vehicles, according to Tan.

"It also has an emergency button. It has a security feature that will automatically inform us of the driver's location, engine on, engine off," added Tan.

Leoloy Nahi-al said that the innovation would not only benefit the riding public but the drivers of the black taxis like him, as well. 

"I think our income will also increase...commuters won't have second thoughts riding a taxi because they can use their ATM in case they don't have cash," Nahi-al said in Filipino. - with Aliana Gimena
