must go through proper channel then can have incentiveYou use LCR HOW TO DRIVE Grab?
He is breaching the contract but don't get caught. He will be banned if uber/LCR finds up and the latter may refuse to honour the insurance coverage if he encounters any accident. It is in the contract that if ones rent from LCR, he can only uber and/or otherwise for his leisure use only.You use LCR HOW TO DRIVE Grab?
Yes agree Grab is betteronce again, the main point isnt about using lcr car to do or not. its about changing to earn better, one mans meat is another mans poison
There are only 2 PH compapnies here. Get black-listed in one you are on a journey of no return with the only other.Even I know LCR cars can't do Grab but I have seen people doing it.Lots but then again,it's the wild wild west for PH now
Unless the incentives are stated in the contract, they are designed and given with short term objectives in mind and are at best temporary.Yes agree Grab is better
Bro,any idea how the surge for taxis is gonna be like? I've never been on Grab's platform beforeI fight you you fight him he fight me. Never-ending.
But Grab was smart enough not to want to kill taxis because it knew this is not possible. Instead it made money from taxis by providing call-platform to them. Now it is going to charge taxis 10 % commission for the surge bookings.
I am not defending uber. I have nothing to defend them. But you can't deny that uber and grab have rattled all the taxi companies and TDs. Taxi companies have been having it so good all these years monopolising the industry. They even bought over the independent yellow cabs. And they thought they could just shake legs and shake balls and increase rentals all the time simply by signalling to PTC.If you are driving full time to feed your family, why compare Uber and grab. You should compare PH and taxis. Why? PH's incentives are not permanent. Today Grab is good, tomorrow Uber may even be better. The next day, all might be withdrawn.
You want to be atas? Come on, everyone knows now that PH is taxi 2.0, or second class taxi.
If your objective is to feed your family, why care? Choose the one that's best to your advantage.
Be fair to yourself and your family and compare:
-Rental : Below $60? Have. At least 4 companies for cars as good as Renault and Pirus
- Surge : Going to have for 3 companies alongside PH
- Commission : No, except for the 10% for surge jobs
- Surcharge : Have, when you do street picks and take calls without surges
- Benefits : Plentiful. Check out yourselves. I am not paid advertising fee so I won't elaborate
- Passengers : Just see Paragon, Battery Rd taxi stand. They are the indications. As long as you see passengers there at the time when they are supposed to be there, there is absolutely no problem with the taxi industry.
- Bang Table: No need. I promise you after driving for 10 years, you will still not know who your Fleet Managers are, because there is no need to go to the office to quarrel with them.
If you drive long term and you are still not calculating and comparing you are making a loss everyday as you drive.

Now they have lowered rental and even created hourly rental plus flexible rental, all because of PH. So many drivers have returned the taxis back to the companies and taxi companies are merely showcasing their fleet. I don't think it's fair to say that driving taxis is easier.
IMO, this surge thing that taxi companies are initiating is a big big mistake. The companies are doing this to compete with PH. Their main motive is to get more hirers - that's all. Just think about it...ask any rider which they would prefer and they would say U / G / T in that order. And when they have to pay surge for taxis, do you think riders will take more taxis or less taxis? If my estimate is right, TDs may even not charge the surge when there's a surge in future, just so that they can take the rider.
This thing is going to be a constant headache for the government to solve. Good luck to them. It'll be interesting to see this story unfold.
welcome welcome, another Green lantern is in the making... may my green force be with u....OK thanks. My mind set to join Grab liao...
