GRAB AND UBER COMPETITION MEANS TAXI DRIVER CANNOT GO FOR KOPI NOW

Most of them are still young, and a lot of them also don't just drive for a living. They can do other jobs too. So, for those who actually are doing two jobs, yes, times might be tough. That's why you have to do two jobs. But have you thought about the fact that doing double jobs means you are pulling in double income? And what about the headache you are giving to the older taxi drivers? These drivers are old, cannot do other jobs already. Most just depend on their taxi jobs for income. And that is slowly being taken away by these young punks. I am an old taxi driver myself. I used to be able to go for kopi sessions with my taxi kakis after a long day driving, just to rest and relax a bit, and catch up with friends. But now, I cannot do that. How to? Any time away from driving means lesser and lesser money. And I cannot miss even one minute of missing out on potential customers. Now, the only time I can relax is when I finish my shift. Sad times to be a taxi driver.

TAXI DRIVER OVERHEARD ARMY BOYS PLAN TO PROFIT FROM ED SHEERAN TICKETS

I am a taxi driver and would like to share what I heard when I sent 4 army boys to their camps on Sunday night. The boys were talking about how they can profit from Ed Sheeran tickets, one of them who went to queue claimed that he got 8 tickets and only needs 2, he is willing to sell the some of the remaining 6 tickets to the other friends and allow them to jack up the prices for profits. They started looking over the Internet for some cheaper tickets like maybe less than $1000 and prepare to sell them out again at $1500 so on and so forth. I am wondering, are these army boys so desperate for money? Why are they robbing others of their livelihood with their own greed or advantage? I am hoping for the authorities or ticketing agents to take actions avian at these scalpers. Please be careful Ed Sheeran fans.

GRAB IS REAPING HUGE PROFITS AT TAXI DRIVERS EXPENSE, WE ARE THE REAL LOSERS

Prices of water, electricity and bus and train fares will be gng up. But a third party app provider Grab has now controlled all taxi companies except Comfort and set taxi fares. That is not correct. PTC has allowed the taxi companies to set the taxi fares and not a third party app provider. Grab has reduced the taxi fares so much that it is cheaper to call a taxi than to queue at taxi stands or flag down taxis. Comfort has also started fixed fares but they have kept their rates at the current prices inclusive of surcharges.
