Grab/Ryde issues and charges

Recommended Posts

Supersonic

Yesterday, i encountered a new driver who has no idea how to go to my destination. I have to guide him along.

 

On the plus side, he is polite and willing to learn.

 

I only gave him 3 starts with feedback that he seriously need to brush up on his navigation.


 

uber is just a taxi coy pretending that its not lah. like u say when it becomes dam big itll have the exact problems taxis have now. uber is just a big fat hedge fund bet waiting for a big sucker to buy them. many country garmen already realize this so they kicked them out.

 

if SG garmen continues to allow uber to stay here, they are basically passing control of taxis from comfort delgro etc to an AMDK coy...

 

So you are saying that ComfortDelgro taxi driver has better service than Uber?

 

I took Comfort Merc cab & the service (especially jerking driving style) is worse than Uber X.

 

Consumer vote with their wallet.

I believe if uber become as popular as taxi, maybe not so fast and easy to get a ride. Cause now most people still trusted taxi, so demand for uber now still not as high as taxi. Many people might still find it weird to call uber ride, and get into a "private" car that come pick you up. Also you never know what car will appear when you call for it. I think this is the fun part of uber ride. Lol.

Correction, you will know the car that picks you up... When a driver is assigned, you can view his photo, car plate no., mobile no. make and model of the car. If not happy with the car make, cancel ride to get another one lor... :grin:

Correction, SG gov started with Grabcar to compete with AMDK coy and may be winning with their promotions, events, lucky draws... As I mentioned Temasek Holdings has one leg in Grabcar... SGGOV more DK

right now, Uber gives the best rate for few months to scrap vehicle.

 

And if suddenly crack down on UBER,then the company proceed to scrap the vehicle.

 

Super low risk.

Voted top rated uber driver for 10 weeks from 16 completed weeks.

 

I guess I'm the only 4.9 rating driver in town and once u see a 4.9 in a blue gen2, u will be in for a treat.

That's provided u wait for me and not the other way round

Already mentioned, Temasek Holdings (via subsidiary Vertex venture holdings) have a share of Grabtaxi (grabcar). So I believe it's here to stay.

 

This thread is well over 20 pages, yet there are still ppl who thinks it's a pirate car??? tsk tsk. These same ppl probably still paying over $100 monthly subscription to Mio/starhub, whereas a large chunk of tech-savvy youngsters are watching free channels via android tv box.

Grabcar and Uber fills the gap which normal taxi cannot fill. Many times very hard to get taxi right? Solution is grabcar and uber lor. Normal taxis like to chut pattern like disappearing before midnight, always give excuse change shift, see your destination if convenient and many other tricks up their sleeve. Now with grabcar and uber, they can disappear all they want before midnight lor. -_-

I said before, driver also can rate passenger. I asked Uber driver what's my rating, i have no rating. What does it means?

What i meant is you would not know what car picks you up only after you have send in your request for a ride, then you can see the details. But like you said, i still can cancel the ride within 5 mins if i don't like the car make. Lol.

Uber driver can rate their passenger? Where to see the rating for passenger?

I kinda agree bro.

 

I think it is good to have Uber in SIngapore. We need external forces to keep our taxi uncles in tab. If not they will suka suka wait for peak hours and such.

 

But i also think our gahmen must implement smth for the uber drivers. Taxi license hard to get leh. hahaha.

"do you want to buy from a 1 star merchant" -->

 

do you want to pick up a 1 star (or negative rating) customer ?

You mean Uber driver also can choose which passenger to pick up by looking at their rating?
