      Upcoming Car-Free Sunday dates: 22 January, 26 February, 26 March & 30 April

       

      Join in a fun-filled day of activities with your friends and family at the upcoming Car-Free Sunday SG on 22 January 2017. Walk, jog, or cycle around the Central Business District and the Civic District to experience our city in a whole new way! We have expanded our route and it will include Cecil Street and the Telok Ayer Conservation Area!We will flag off at 8am in front of National Gallery steps!

       

      Car-Free Sunday SG turns part of our city into a pedestrian and cyclist friendly precinct and creates a 5.5 km route of closed roads in the heart of the city. It is part of the larger movement towards a car-lite Singapore, envisioning our city with fewer cars.

       

      Car-Free Sunday SG takes place on the last Sunday of every month, with exciting line ups of activities for each edition!

    • 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

      Gov't: BR1M can be used to buy Proton Iriz to be Uber driver

      Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) recipients who do not own a car can use the aid to buy a Proton Iriz, so they can generate income as Uber or Grabcar drivers, the government said.

       

      "This will be implemented in this year," treasurer-general Mohd Irwan Siregar Abdullah said at a press conference on the BR1M at Putrajaya today.

      Advertisement

      I lorry driver working Singapore for 4 years already, but now I don't feel
      happy, on 1/1/2017 midnight around 2.30am I with 4 men from my same hostel go
      drive lorry go Boat Quay and Clarke Quay there got pick up some of my Indian
      and Bangla men friend. I drive and stop every 50 to 100 metre asking them
      where they going, because many drunk men and woman so want to help them get
      back home or hostel because taxi and uber men don't want pick, I got before,
      1 time my friend and I take blue taxi back from Clarke Quay back to Kranji,
      taxi men talk many many then my friend vomit in the taxi, no time take
      plastic bag for him, taxi men ask me pay him $100 so I pay he talk many many
      say his taxi cannot pick people because my friend vomit, and if I no pay,
      then taxi men going throw me and my Friend out on highway, then one time
      another of my friend take uber, uber man also talk many many when my friend

      So festive occasion and Sunday I drive out help to pick people taxi and uber

      taxi man and I think uber man come out take video and photo of me picking

    • For the IT apps company, its all a sum game

      Mathematics expert inside

      Example uber existing fare can garner 1,000,000 riders daily , average trip S$8 , in commission uber can earn S$160,000 daily (20% of S$800,000 in fares)

      For this IT company  to earn more they just need to tweek the fare lower, when fares are lower by 20 % , their ridership increase to 2,000,000 , average trip becomes S$6.40 ,  in commission uber can earn S$256,000 daily (20% of S$1,280,000 in fares)

      Pax happy

      Above is just an example 

      For taxi company its directly opposite, to increase revenue, they need to up the rental, when rental up, fares need to increase so to retain drivers

      in this way , Pax unhappy ,

      so if got choice pax will choose cheaper fares, both transportation is from point A to point B , why must they pay more ?
