The company

CityTaps is a social start-up whose vision is running water in every urban home.

CityTaps has developed a service, CTSuite, that bridges the gap between water utilities and the urban poors: a prepayment service that integrates mobile payment systems with the world's first smart and prepaid water meter.

CTSuite helps water utilities become financially independent and able to invest in infrastructure to bring at-home water service to even the poorest residents.

Subscribers use mobile money to prepay for running water with any mobile phone, at any time, for any amount.

Our projects lead us in Sub-Saharan Africa, South America and Asia.
