Snapper Accepted in NZ's Largest Taxi Fleet

Tuesday, 10 May, 2011

Snapper today announced that the fastest way to pay is now widely accepted by Auckland Co-Op Taxis, New Zealand's single largest taxi fleet. Snapper customers can now enjoy the unbeatable speed and convenience of Snapper in nearly 1000 taxis throughout Auckland.

Miki Szikszai, Snapper CEO says “Snapper is pleased to be working with Auckland Co-Op Taxis to offer this service to customers.”

Mr Szikszai says “Customers regularly tell us they love the speed and convenience of Snapper - they just want more and more places where they can enjoy the benefits. We are growing the number of places where customers can use their Snapper every day. Having more than 900 additional taxis that accept Snapper is a great boost for customers.”

Auckland Co-Op Taxis CEO, Barrie White says "We are pleased to be able to accept Snapper as a new method of payment for taxi travel."

Huge growth phase.

Mr Szikszai adds, "With Snapper’s support of the HOP launch in Auckland, in the last week alone another 15,000 people in Auckland have added a Snapper-capable card to their wallets, purses and pockets. In the next 4 weeks, another 100,000 people will do the same. One of Snapper's key areas of focus is adding more places where customers can use their Snapper - in Auckland, Wellington, and right across the country. More Snapper retailers are being added on a daily basis so we urge customers to sign up on our website - www.snapper.co.nz/sign-up - for regular Snapper updates. Then they will be among the first to hear about the latest places where they can use their Snapper.

“Rugby World Cup will be here in just four months. It’s great to have a flagship operator like Auckland Co-Op accepting Snapper right now. This means the 85,000 visitors arriving in New Zealand that are unfamiliar with our currency will immediately see the benefit of Snapper for getting around Auckland's major venues.”
