VeriFone Adds New Programming To Mobile Taxi Screens
VeriFone Holdings also announced that 6,500 New York City taxis--half of the total city fleet--are now signed or committed to comprehensive multi-year agreements with VTS for in-taxi acceptance of credit cards, making the company the leading vendor in the taxi technology market. This figure includes the more than 6,050 integrated passenger information and payment solution systems that are already installed in NYC taxis, and represents totals that greatly exceed the company's original projections.
In addition to People.com, VTS is also providing content from PMbuzz.com, a source of information on the New York nightlife scene, and Disney Broadway, which brings Disney classics to the stage. The VTS system features a Passenger Information Monitor with a 10.4-inch touch-screen monitor that features programming from a host of providers, including WABC-TV's local news, AccuWeather, Reuters Business News and the Zagat Survey.
