Amos Taman is the Owner, President and Chief Executive Officer of VeriFone Transportation System, Inc.
Because of Amos Taman, in 1987, New York City taxis began to install equipment allowing passengers to use credit cards to pay their fares. This made life so much easier to take a taxi ride around the city. Especially those who used the taxis for business travel and never seemed to have cash on them.
Amos Taman saw how the word was getting around that he had a system available for taxis to accept credit cards and he began having other cities looking to obtain the same system.
Amos Taman’s idea is a great help especially in this economy and with the increase of crime around us. People do not like to carry cash.
