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.
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.
Company takes the responsibility of finding booking customers for you and takes the risk for passenger no-shows.
Suitable for low mileage drivers who will pay a rental according to their mileage clocked.
Suitable for drivers who have concerns on low fares collections.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

that one no good , only easy access to T2, somemore its double zigzag, u muz find one that easy access all 3 terminals
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

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)
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 ?
