    • Sorry to open new thread, this is alarming

      But then again, someone's prediction a few years ago just came true - SMRT should just concentrate on their MRT business just as their company's name suggests

    • TAXI KNEW METER IS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN GRAB. HE FORCE THE PASSENGER TO PAY THE HIGHER FARE  0

      Hi, I booked a just JUSTGRAB this morning and had gotten a taxi to work. Fixed Fare was $14. When the driver picked me up, I noticed something peculiar when he switched on the meter with booking fee, thinking this was SOP. I kept quiet.

       

       

       

      When we arrived at the destination, the taxi meter was $18 + $4.30 (Booking Fee). We didnt passed any ERP. He requested I paid using the meter fare. To my shock, I still managed to calm my self down and politely tell the driver that he had accepted a “JustGrab” service where it is fixed fee, even his app had shown $14.

      He then shouted at me “this is GrabTaxi, you pay by meter!” I showed him the app again and offering to call grab to mediate, he then hesitated and accepted the fare.

       

      This is crazy. We now go back to the days where pax and driver argue over fares beyond meter. Just for passengers awareness in case taxi drivers try to beat the system.

      SINGAPORE: A 44-year-old man has been arrested for alleged cheating taxi drivers of their money and failing to pay fares.

      In a press release issued on Friday (Mar 17), police said that they had received multiple reports about the man between January and March this year.

      Preliminary investigations revealed that the suspect had flagged for taxis and asked drivers to stop at a market along Haig Road before proceeding to the intended destination.

      During these pit-stops, the man would ask for loans of between S$20 and S$40 from the taxi drivers under various different pretexts, and then alight at the halfway point and not return.

      The man was arrested in Potong Pasir on Thursday.

      He will be charged in court on Saturday with the offence of cheating, which is punishable by up to 10 years' jail and a fine.

    • 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 ...

    • Dear Hirers

      We write to thank you for your strong support for maintaining the job volume at 34 million bookings in 2016. We also like to share our plans and measures to help drivers as the economy slows and competition increases.

      Flexi-Rental Schemes 
      We have various rental schemes where we share with drivers the revenue and business risk. Under these schemes, drivers save on rental when business is weak.

      25CJ 
      Company takes the responsibility of finding booking customers for you and takes the risk for passenger no-shows.

      Pay-as-You-Drive 
      Suitable for low mileage drivers who will pay a rental according to their mileage clocked.

      Fares Sharing 
      Suitable for drivers who have concerns on low fares collections.

      Corporate Jobs 
      Drivers can choose to pay either half rental or no rental in exchange for 2 hours or 4 hours of their time to do corporate jobs assigned by the Company.

      All these schemes are also open to both OMO and 2 shift drivers. We have been reaching out to drivers in batches to explain the schemes. So far, over 1,000 have joined the schemes. If you are interested to join our briefings, please email us at [email protected]
