The questionnaire was used for data collection and data analyzed by use of descriptive statistics. Multiple regression analysis was used to determine the relationship between variables and correlation analysis was carried out to determine the extent of relationship between variables. The ANOVA test of significance indicated that there was no significant influence of industry size (as shown by a p- value of 0.274) on adoption of cashless payment system. Other factors influenced its adoption such as: poor network failure, faulty gadgets, lack of adoption structures and use of multiple smart cards. The researcher recommends that the governments to issue one card system that can be used across all means of transport, improve information technology network, create public awareness and ensure Matatu crew are well trained.
