Dear A.S.S. Editor
Initially when LTA allowed private hire vehicles a few years back, it is more for those who owned a car and wanted to make some extra income to help in expenses in this very expensive country of ours. It also goes in line with a Car-light Singapore vision.
At the same time it helps alleviate the number of insufficient supply of taxis during peak hours. But, as time goes by, private hire vehicles have evolved, and now have become more like taxi services, minus off the taxi licensing fees. Now, it is very obvious that private hire vehicles are getting bigger in number. Rental companies have been popping up ever since. More cars are on the road, thus causing more traffic jams. And they even have an association who is asking LTA to allow them the use of a taxi stand/stop, asking also from IRAS to discuss their tax matters.
Are your heads getting too big? Even the most powerful union in Singapore, NTUC would not ask IRAS to lessen their members tax. Who are you to even mention it?
