    • OK , guys lets face it , everything about taxi is diminishing , the numbers, the fares, the trips, the paxs, the earnings, etc

      A couple of mths ago already started driving both taxi and uber as a super relief , cos nowadays a lot of hirers throw keys some become reliefs some join private hired.

      On my days which no taxi jobs , I will book a hourly rental type of private hired vehicle to operate to earn extra income , any bros interested can PM me , will try not to advertised it here

      Can say income as uber driving or taxi driving abt the same. With incentives and those boost and surges offered, PHD could earn more

      Both taxi driving and uber driving has got its pros and cons , will not devulged to much here,  if can take advantage of the system , driving would be a breeze

      One thing to note , I expecially like the Uber airport Q system , just park somewhere near and u are in the queue , can go toilet can makan, usually abt 10 mins it will be your turn if queue size is abt 30 , if queue size less than 10 , it would be quite immediate. No need to queue all the way to ECP, just park at a location which can easily assess to the 3 terminals, with taxi experience, it would be very easy to find this place , as  airport is actually a taxi driver's playground , haha ,  sorry again cannot disclose this location if not airport police will come and disturb

      Hide destination, hide fares......... then "one a blue moon" will system error, your fares sure lower one.

    • wow, nowadays cdg and smrt also got flexi driving scheme, can book by the hour leow

      suits my lifestyle best, as i drive only 3 to 5 hrs each session only

      this is the way taxis should be driven, suka suka drive, suka suka dun drive, when driving should put in 100% effort , when resting 100% rest

      now can toggle between different companies leow, haha

       when there's pax drive, no pax time why waste energy ?

      taxis are money making machine, not pay money to maintain vehicle for others ...

    • Didn't know cdg got hourly scheme.

      Though not appealing to all but at least an alternative 

      If hired taxi sent for repair, also can make use of this scheme to continue drinking

    • DIY is good in saving and also, more healthy. Where illusion and dream have no limit, let DIY.

      full rental per shift is normal, why should hirers absorb the cost?

    • You can rent out as high as you want, there is no rules and regulation in it, the market forces will ultimately force you to give a reasonable prices, unless, if you want to give a normal price or higher, then prepare to man man tan…until one newbie cuckoo bird get hooked, but the newbie will become oldie one day….and will fark and throw back the key to the hirer.

      Friend, agar agar ok lah, you want to rest, other relieve you so that you dun lose out, you get the incentives and benefit provide, let go some slack, you will get good relief. Otherwise, Mr Tan ku ku will be yr gd relief
