      2 weeks free rental and 5.5 months @$59 a day. That is about $10k in rental for 6 months.

      Now rental for 6 month for existing loyal partners. $127 a day minus 1 free day rental per month and 6 months incentive of $1.5k loyalty discount. That is about $19.7k in rental for 6 months.

      So what benefits what incentives???? The taxi companies calls taxi drivers as Partners.  I guess it is partners that they can Screw!!

      Transcab boss is smart. He knows that existing drivers can jump to other companies and enjoy the promotional rates. But he bit the bullet and extend the discount to existing drivers too. Only companies like CDG and SMRT are willing to screw their driver and expect to get away with it. If we taxi drivers dun make a stand now we will never have a chance in future. 


      You want the truth, can you handle the truth?? The truth is, dun be a driver.

    • With PHV new rules coming in, taxi companies reducing rental and challenging them…now is the time…brothers and sisters, taxi companies had been waiting for this Phv new rules to kick in to play their counter attack..it is up to you to choose, the buffet spread now is widened.

      Be smart

    • Too many young and handsome u/g drivers liao so hard to compete. Drive taxi easier to impress pax.

    • Poor road knowledge is one problem. Worse is pax gives building names in short form or destinations in hokkien/ dialects terms. I make sure i will send those to holland!

      Must taxi uncle give way to Uber driver?

      To commuters, this must seem good news. After all, a ride is a ride - be it taxi company or private-hire service; what matters is price and convenience. That is how the marketplace operates

      This is 25 booking call per week to offset 50% of yr rental.

       

      Need to check the detail of the downtime. I heard not immediate offset to you.

      It is not about easy or hard. If the 25 booking fares is less than your 50% rental. Then u gain saving in rental.

      Comfort cheap solution for hirer to take their calls.

      Sometime earning is better without calls. 

      Call dun show location n can lead u to holan area. Street job can wind down window and ask.

    • 25 bookings a week is very easy. Finger standby at mdt or just use autobid.

      The money collected from 25 booking call dont goes to u. It used to offset the rental. When yr taxi still in workshop, they continue to deduce your 50% rental then you will get the perfect answer from them.
