Hoseh lio lah, Uber & Grab tax hike coming...!
I am Taxi Driver, I noticed since Uber and Grab came into market, the No Show/Cancellation rate of Booking Job have shoot to 35%. During Low Demand Period (10am-12noon, 2pm-4pm, 8-9pm, 11pm-7am on most days except Friday and Saturday), Uber/Grab is cheaper than Taxi which will kill Taxi. During High Demand Period, Uber/Grab is more expensive than Taxi, so smart passenger will wait for Taxi, but since few thousands Taxi were killed, they could not find Taxi too. Ideal Model should be Uber/Grab be more expensive than Taxi at all time, anyone need Transport urgently can pay more to book them, it will truly supplement Taxi.
Current Model are favoritism of Uber and Grab. Transportation services in Singapore required high professional standard, inexperience driver guided by GPS is life threatening Trip to passenger and other road users.
Ride hailing apps should be banned bcos drivers spent at least 50% of the time looking at the phone instead of the roads...should never have passed the safety marks...LTA must be either conned or sleeping....
they just want to save their baby comfort delgro
which operates in a primitive style while enslaving all its hirers

Go regulate your Temasek owned taxi company la! Stop intefereing with the market forces and make it harder for uber and grab drivers to make a living. Doing this is only meant to protect your Temasel owned taxi companies
education minister? also involve in transport issues??? kapor??? want to score points?
You guys are hopeless, you forced many unemployed PMETs etc to join PHC and now you tax them without considering their huge expenses such as rental and petrol, they are virtually working for free!!!!
When a minister holds two portfolios,he is unable to perform his duties 100%. No wonder,more problems and issues crop up every now and then. These millionaire ministers should concentrate on one and do it well for the people and country.
Regulate the rubbish mrt first to zero breakdown a year lah. Not even fixing anything then try to divert attention. If the most basic of public transport is reliable and effective Uber and grab will see a drastic fall in demand, then no need for strict regulations anyway. All not solving the problem, inconveniencing everyone with their nonsense.
You should regulate them so that they don't merge into a monopoly. Nah.. nvm. It's never your priority any way. You just wanna regulate them to add higher cost to them so they will not make non efficient GLC company Comfort lose money.
