Passengers will be able to pay taxi fares by a QR code from May 22 against previous cash payments only, Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze said at the municipality government meeting.

However, the BKN301 Georgia company introduced this innovative method that identifies the account of any person. The taxi drivers will receive the codes at service centres.

A customer will scan the QR code with a mobile phone and easily pay the fare. The taxi driver will instantly receive the money transferred to his bank account,” Kakha Kaladze said.
