SINGAPORE - Cab drivers in Singapore who use GrabTaxi, a taxi booking smartphone app that connects passengers to nearby taxi drivers, can now pay GrabTaxi fees via their M1 bills.

The local telco has tied up with GrabTaxi to save taxi drivers a trip to GrabTaxi's offices, it said on Wednesday.

GrabTaxi, the second-largest taxi network in Singapore, charges taxi drivers a small fee for bookings made through its app.

"Time is money, and we are pleased to work with GrabTaxi to allow Singapore's hardworking and tech-savvy taxi drivers to top up their GrabTaxi credits more conveniently," said M1's chief marketing officer P. Subramaniam.
