“This is just the beginning of our foray into the transport sector. Wherever cash is used, we want to offer a quick and hassle-free alternative,” said Ernest Cu, chief executive officer of Globe Telecom.

Globe, together with Ant Financial and Ayala Corp., owns Mynt, the financial technology company which operates GCash mobile wallet service.

The Zum e-Series electric tricycle can seat six passengers. Compared to traditional vehicles, the electric tricycle is quiet, economical, and emits a lower carbon footprint.

Through the service, commuters can enjoy cashless payments by scanning the QR code provided by the drivers. GCash’s scan-to-pay feature is the only mode of payment available in the e-shuttle.

The Zum e-Series offers point-to-point transport from the WCC Building to Market! Market! and vice versa.
