Use of Uber, Grab car rather than conventional cab in SingaporeCreated by:
In Singapore, taxi fares and road taxes - ERP has been on an increasing trend. Taxi drivers are getting more obnoxious and they tend to choose whether who and where they want to pick up passengers. This allows part-time drivers licensed to Uber and Grab car to be able to have an oppotunity to get more customers. It is really frustrating to flag a taxi on the road especially during the notorious "changing shift" period, where the taxi drivers would only pick those who are along their way to change shift. This leads to a huge demand of taxis during those period and unfortunately one of the changing shift period is when people are going off work around 6-7 pm. Using Uber and grab car is easy and sometimes there may be promotional discounts which makes them way cheaper than conventional taxi. However, on the other hand, the rates fluctuates alot based on demand and supply. Wondering does people from other countries use Uber and Grab car as well?
