In recent news, Mastercard has signed an agreement with the Pakistani intelligent transport systems provider, One Network. The partnership agreement signed at the Pakistan Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai is done in an effort to digitalize Pakistan’s road toll payments.
The partnership will integrate Mastercard’s digital payment gateway into One Network’s newly launched smartphone application. Once executed the partnership will enable motorway commuters to top-up their M-Tag cards before they travel onto their mobile devices. Moreover, people traveling on the motorway can check their travel history and check their remaining balance on the go.
Khalid Elgibali, Division President, Middle East & North Africa, Mastercard, commented on the partnership,
“As a trusted partner to the government of Pakistan, we are delighted to integrate Mastercard’s digital payment mobility solutions into One Network’s electronic toll collection system and smartphone application. Mastercard will continue to work with our partners to build a digital payments ecosystem that serves the businesses and people of Pakistan through simple, safe and seamless solutions that keep people and the economy moving.”
The Chief Executive Officer of One Network, Mr. Asif Siddique also spoke on the occasion,
“We are delighted to announce that now commuters can easily recharge their M-Tag account through our Mobile App. Partnering with Mastercard to simplify toll tax payments for the millions of commuters across Pakistan’s road network bring us a step forward in driving smart transformation in the country and enriching the lives of our citizens.”
