Fares

UBER VS GRAB VS TAXI, ONLY THE DRIVERS ARE THE LOSERS

No environment or situation is perfect. Giants can fight. But life still goes on. To maximise my chances of earnings and survival, I go where the wind blows. Now Grab give, money take. Give low fares ask them to go f themselves. No need to talk about pity here, pity there. In the end, we chose this trade slog to feed our families. I don’t need someone who is not even driving to tell me about the past, present or future. Especially one who has not “seen the world” yet or as they say wet behind the ears.

TAXI COMPANIES TO START CHARGING FARES BY DEMAND, EXCUSE FOR FARE TO GO UP!

Not sure if this is a good idea. While some might say it is only fair that customers pay for something based on demand, thus if you want a cab badly during peak hours, you pay more for it. But what if the taxi companies take advantage of this, and declare prices to be relatively high due to demand? Will this mean that cab fares are permanently on the way up? Everything goes up! Is Singapore really aiming to be the most expensive city in the world?
