    Hong Kong taxis will soon be equipped with a card reader, enabling passengers to pay by their Octopus smart card instead of cash. The move upgrades an area of the city's public transport industry that currently lags behind other world hubs.

    The service will be rolled out on over 300 cabs over the next four months, after a successful pilot scheme on 30 taxis last December.
