Kenya: SasaPay unveils cashless payment platform for matatu

SasaPay, a digital payment service provider, has introduced fare collection tills, revolutionizing cashless payments for the matatu industry.

The SasaPay Tills represent a significant leap in modernizing transport payments, providing convenience, transparency, and financial accountability for both matatu operators and passengers.

Matatu operators can register with SasaPay to receive a dedicated Till number, enabling passengers to make their bus fare payments seamlessly.

The Till accepts payments from both SasaPay users and all other networks.

Operators can monitor real-time fare collection, improving financial transparency.

Passengers need to download the user-friendly SasaPay app for swift and secure payments.

The key benefit of using the till is enhanced accountability, allowing matatu owners and Sacco administrators to easily oversee and control all fare collections.

The firm’s head of customer success and marketing Cathrine Mwihaki said “This eliminates the risks associated with cash handling and significantly enhances financial transparency”.

OMA Sacco, a transport line serving the Buru Buru and Nairobi City Centre route with electric buses, has fully embraced SasaPay’s Collection Till. To promote widespread adoption, the company has initiated an attractive referral campaign.

The campaign is aimed at matatu drivers and conductors from OMA Sacco. When they successfully onboard a SasaPay customer, they will receive an immediate credit of Sh30 to their SasaPay account.

George Githinji, Chairman of OMA, expresses that their customers have warmly embraced the SasaPay Platform, simplifying the process of paying their fares.

“I highly recommend SasaPay to fellow matatu industry stakeholders, particularly Saccos, as it not only mitigates security risks associated with cash handling but also offers cost-effective payment solutions,” he said.  

Pauline Mueni, OMA Sacco conductor said, “With SasaPay, once the payment is made, it’s final. We inform our passengers that we’ve gone cashless, and they appreciate the simplicity.”

The Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis (Kippra), approximately three million Nairobi residents rely on matatus for their daily commute to work.
