Here you go.

Let's start this thread for fellow UBERers here to share
Discuss and discern the riders and drivers we have here. It's a good platform for our own kaki to discuss and help one another. This is more focused cf the other general thread.


That said, we do not potong jalan and let UBER still earn the due funds as they have changed the landscape for ride sharing

Thanks and let's keep this place civil as always
Some advise the UBER kaki can share is:

1. Tips on starting up

2. Common pattern of riders

3. Route management

4. User experiences



I'll add in RYDE and grabtaxi in due course

Sorry, a bit confused - this is for people hoping to start up a career with uber or for members here to discuss the best way to take an uber car/cab?

Let me start with difference between Uber and Grabcar (from driver's point): -

 

ai) Uber calculate fare based on estimation and may differ after passenger reach destination.

aii) Grabcar fare is fixed upon accepting except 3 additions (toll fee, extra drop off, extra waiting time) if applicable.

 

bi) Uber does not display destination of passenger.

bii) Grabcar shows the destination of passenger.

 

ci) Uber ONLY accepts cashless transaction.

cii) Grabcar's passenger can pay by cash.

 

di) Uber driver app can run only Iphone or Android phone

dii) Grabcar driver app ONLY on Android phone

 

And finally their incentives for drivers are totally different.

Next I shall share difference in registration for Uber / Grabcar drivers (both companies will require the standard documents)

 

ai) Uber just need to take queue no., register with standard documents

aii) Grabcar take queue no., register with standard documents and Customer Service will go through an activation checklist

 

Checklist includes but not limited to:

 

1. Check IMEI no. on your android handphone

2. Check on the car used to do Grabcar, make sure it is clean

3. Must attend their workshop on use of Grabcar and their code of conduct

 

bi) Uber activates driver account on the same day

bii) Grabcar activates driver account after 2 to 3 working days

It depends on the coverage and type of car used, but basically between 1.5x to 2x

Honestly, it will be good to own a diesel car to be an Uber or Graber Taxi driver, otherwise the benefits will be gone.

 

Rather than the basis any taxi can offer, Uber and Grab taxi must offer more than the latter.

I think it would be good to be clearer, there are different types of services that Uber / Grabcar have: -

 

Uber:

 

Ubertaxi - Standard taxi

UberX - private chauffeur with normal car

UberXL - private chauffeur with MPV

UberExec - private chauffeur with luxury car

UberExec Large - private chauffeur with mini van

 

 

Grabtaxi:

 

Grabtaxi - Standard taxi

Grabcar - private chauffeur with normal car

GrabHitch - Car pooling

Grabcar+ - private chauffeur with luxury car

Grabcar (6-seater) - private chauffeur with MPV

Grabcar (13-seater) - private chauffeur with mini van

 

So it depends on which one to choose and you will have different benefits and incentives.

New LTA regulation requires Uber driver to have taxi license, true?


You have eaten 10 curry puffs, 4 cakes and a tao sar boa.
You have drunk 10 cokes, and a jug of sarsi and I don't know how.
All you do is waddle, when the others run.
Eat a little less, play a little more.
You will find that life is a lot more fun than it was before.

Not true, the LTA regulation is on third party software that provides service to the taxi drivers, e.g. Ubertaxi and Grabtaxi.

 

Grabcar and UberX etc is a third party software that provides service to Private Chauffeur / Limo drivers. 2 different issues.
