The taxi surge is the most idiotic move that taxi companies made. Now the reason being is that everyone in Singapore is talking about money money money and our government just ignore them.
The best way out to have a level playing field or fair competition will be to remove all the surge pricing for uber and grab, and make their fares align closely to taxis, this will definitely be a fair game.
Otherwise, we shall prepare to see more crowded trains, buses and roads, be prepared to be like Hong Kong as many will be taking buses and trains more often. If the government do not step in, let me tell you, soon, taxis, grab and uber is going to diminish. And bus sharing will be very popular.
