  1. Move to raise private-hire firms' service, safety standards PUBLISHED JAN 13, 2020, 5:00 AM SGT Private-hire cars with deep dents, broken lights, mismatched tyres or which look like they have had a good few years on them are on the way out. But young drivers will remain, for now. Rules and regulations for the point-to-point (P2P) regulatory framework are being finalised. When effective from June, they are likely to encourage firms to raise their service and safety standards. ... https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/move-to-raise-private-hire-firms-service-safety-standards
  2. TL;DR – A passenger uploaded a screenshot of a lewd conversation between herself and an illegal hitch driver on social media. Want to save a few dollars on your next Private Hire ride? There are always unofficial alternatives that you can find via Telegram groups like the one below. Note: I don’t personally use this at all. A friend decided to add me, and I was too lazy to leave the group. Just this one group has over 197,000+ members! But be warned! If you decide to take this route, you might meet some unsavoury characters who do not operate under any corporate entity. Here’s a perfect example If the image above is too texty, and you get dizzy from too many words, here’s a quick summary of the image post on Singapore Private Hire Car Drivers & Riders Community FB page. A hitch driver texts his passenger to confirm the pick-up details along with his ETA The driver then informs the passenger that he’s barely clothed Reason being that he (the driver) would give a free ride if his passenger allowed him to get fully naked and touch himself while driving Yeah. That was my face when I read the whole conversation. Some due diligence in order Obviously, in this day and age, you’ve got to take what you see online with a pinch of salt. So, I decided to search for this car on OneMotoring. But no such vehicle exists! Still an intriguing story though. But obviously, netizens didn’t bother fact-checking. The comments section exploded. Let’s read some! Online Chatter HE SIMPLY MISTOOK GRAB CAR with GRAB THE BALLS. That’s hilarious! The person who said, “I will sit quietly behind n close my eyes because free of charge” got a serious problem la. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  3. According to SG Road Vigilante, these two passengers with two dogs booked a normal GoJek ride home and refused to cancel to save on the $4 cancellation fee. Driver is said to be allergic to pets. A quick check on Grab's website, drivers are allowed to cancel the trip and will not affect cancellation rate https://help.grab.com/driver/en-sg/115013217407 But this is on Grab. Rushing to get ready for work now! BRB. 😂
  4. Grab & Gojek could merge soon source: https://mothership.sg/2020/12/grab-gojek-merger/ Events ARTiculate @ North East 20 November 2020 - 20 December 2020 Bloomberg reported on Dec. 2 that ride-hailing platforms Grab and Gojek have made "substantial progress" in working out a merger deal, which is looking to be the "biggest internet merger in Southeast Asia". The information was provided by people with knowledge of the merger discussion. It is apparently being discussed by senior leaders from Gojek and Grab, as well as SoftBank Group Corp., an investor in Grab. While the talks might not result in anything concrete, it is said that if and when the merger proceeds, Grab co-founder Anthony Tan will become the new company's chief executive officer. The merged entity will also run under the Gojek brand in Indonesia. Bloomberg's sources said Grab and Gojek are ultimately hoping to merge with the aim of becoming a publicly-listed company. When Mothership contacted Grab for comment on the matter, a spokesperson said: Anti-competition concerns This merger will draw scrutiny from regulators who will have concerns about anti-competition, considering that both parties hold large market shares in many of the countries they operate in. When Grab and Uber merged in 2018, they were fined a combined S$13 million by the Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore (CCCS). The CCCS said that the Uber-Grab merger reduced competition and increased prices for consumers. More recently in July this year, Indonesia's anti-monopoly watchdog, the Business Competition Supervisory Commission (KPPU), fined Grab Indonesia and its car rental partner, PT Teknologi Pengangkutan Indonesia (TPI), a combined IDR 49 billion (S$4.7 million) for carrying out discriminatory practices against drivers. The KPPU said that Grab Indonesia gave preferential treatment -- including the allotment of priority orders -- to drivers using cars from TPI. Grab Indonesia denied it.
  5. Disclaimer: Lengthy post here Just touched down at Changi Airport terminal 1. Seems to have a few flights that touched down around the same time that caused a surge for Grab and Gojek. Been trying for roughly 10 minutes to get a grab but to no avail. *Fare shows $11* Finally we got a car from Gojek to pick up at T1 Arrival gate 9. *Fare is $14* This driver had been showing signs of weirdness when he picked us up. These are the questions he asked, Driver: 3 persons travelling? Us: Yes *light laughter* Driver: Welcome back to Singapore Us: Thank you Driver: Does that entitles me to a tip? Us: Awkward laughter Me: I can give you 5 stars rating Driver: 5 stars rating is of no use for Gojek, useful for Grab though Us: Well, different platform, sorry to hear about that. Driver: Grab surge is $21 for a trip to Tampines now, so it will be nice if you can leave me a tip. Do you mind? Normally I will suggest my clients to leave me a tip of $3 if they don’t mind. Do you mind? At this moment, I’m already kind of pissed. Having just arrived from a red-eye flight. It was silence and we ignored to whatever he was blabbering about. Can you believe it, he continued by asking us AGAIN, “Do you mind leaving me a tip?” Me: Yes I do mind *hoping that he will STFU* Of course he wouldn’t keep quiet and drive right. Guess what he said?! Driver: Well ok if you do mind, I guess I will have to drop you at the nearest bus stop. Me: Dude you serious?! Driver: Yes, because I asked if you mind tipping me and you said you mind. So do you mind me dropping you off here at the middle of the road? Me: You f*ing serious right now?! Driver: I don’t want to force you to tip me, so I will drop you off at the nearest drop off point and you can try using grab. Me: If you are so unhappy with the fare Gojek platform offers, why did you accept the job in the first place?! After picking up your passengers, here you are demanding a tip and kept comparing the benefits between both platforms (Grab & Gojek). If you are not happy with what Gojek offers you, then drive with Grab! Basically he cancelled the ride on route and dropped us off at a bus stop along the airport. (20 Airport boulevard). While we offload our bags and luggage, he got off the car and said everything is recorded. Me: Go ahead and bring the video to the police. Driver: Cause I know who really needs a ride now. Good luck my friends! What a night with a nutcase. PS: I’m not saying that I’m a saint here and trying to thrash someone or being difficult. Of course during the argument, there were fingers being exchanged (the most classic finger) and yes, the F word.
  6. A Gojek passenger has shared on Facebook that a driver kicked him out when he realised that he was not getting a tip from his passenger! Joseph Lam, the Facebook user who encountered this bizarre incident recounted this incident in which he had touched down at Changi Terminal 1 and human traffic was heavy at the airport. Naturally, that lead to a surge in prices of private hire services. Happily after 10 minutes, he managed to get a driver with Gojek for $14 that was headed towards Tampines Street 34. Upon getting in the car, Mr. Lam felt that something was off with the driver. Below is an extract from his Facebook post. Driver: 3 persons travelling? Us: Yes *light laughter* Driver: Welcome back to Singapore Us: Thank you Driver: Does that entitles me to a tip? Us: Awkward laughter Me: I can give you 5 stars rating Driver: 5 stars rating is of no use for Gojek, useful for Grab though Us: Well, different platform, sorry to hear about that. Driver: Grab surge is $21 for a trip to Tampines now, so it will be nice if you can leave me a tip. Do you mind? Normally I will suggest my clients to leave me a tip of $3 if they don’t mind. Do you mind? Following this, Mr. Lam did not answer, choosing to believe that the driver would not mention it again if he was ignored. However, the driver repeated the question and Mr. Lam had no choice but to reply that he minded. Now here's where things started getting serious. Driver: Well ok if you do mind, I guess I will have to drop you at the nearest bus stop. Me: Dude you serious?! Driver: Yes, because I asked if you mind tipping me and you said you mind. So do you mind me dropping you off here at the middle of the road? Me: You f*ing serious right now?! Driver: I don’t want to force you to tip me, so I will drop you off at the nearest drop off point and you can try using grab. The driver then proceeded to drop Mr. Lam and his passenger off at a bus stop near the airport (20 Airport boulevard) after canceling the ride. After all the bags were unloaded, the driver reminded Lam that everything said has been recorded before remarking "Cause I know who really needs a ride now. Good luck my friends! " Naturally, netizens were supportive of Mr. Lam and condemned the driver for flouting LTA's Private Hire rules. For those who are wondering, there is a rule whereby the termination of a chauffeured private hire car, or requiring a passenger to leave a chauffeured private hire car, without reasonable excuse, before the passenger is conveyed to the destination, can result in a fine of $200 and 5 demerit points. Gojek's Response As of press time, Mr. Lam has responded by stating that Gojek has responded as his post has gone viral with more than 3,000 shares on Facebook. Gojek has since suspended the driver and has tried to do some form of service recovery but Mr. Lam has refused, claiming that his intention was not to gain anything from this incident but simply warn friends and family of such ridiculous extortion and threats. You can read more of Lam's updates below.
  7. New saga! Cheapo rider take Gojek, according to her there's a route that can avoid ERP. When the driver ask which way, she says she don't know and then claims that driver is out to cheat her ERP money. Driver angry, drove to police station. She tries to record driver and accused him of driving recklessly. She says driver has no right to record her, even though she herself is trying to record the driver. She calls (presumably Gojek hotline) to report driver. They reach a place where there is a Malay policeman. She tried to exit the car but the car is auto locked, and shouts "kidnap!" Policeman appears to side with driver and she plays racist card. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0sziuM1_a8&feature=youtu.be

  9. New ride-hailing firm FastGo to launch in Singapore SINGAPORE - A nine-month-old Vietnamese start-up is hoping to carve a place for itself in Singapore's ride-hailing scene, currently dominated by industry giants Grab and Gojek. FastGo announced on Wednesday (March 20) that it aims to launch services here at the end of next month, and will begin registering drivers on April 1. The initial fleet size here will be at least 3,000 cars on the roads, FastGo Singapore country manager Diep Nguyen told The Straits Times. The firm currently operates in Vietnam and Myanmar, and plans to launch in five other countries in the region - such as Indonesia and the Philippines - by the end of 2019. Ms Nguyen said the firm invests an initial sum of about US$3 million ($4 million) in each new market. Referring to competition from Grab and Gojek, she said FastGo was "competing with them well" and that it would learn from its rivals' "experience and weaknesses to provide good policies and services for commuters and drivers". FastGo also intends to collaborate with taxi operators here, she added. In response to queries, a Land Transport Authority (LTA) spokesman said: "We are working with FastGo to help them understand and operate in accordance to the local regulatory requirements." The LTA spokesman added that all prospective private-hire car booking service operators must comply with existing regulatory requirements before being allowed to operate here. FastGo aims to differentiate itself from Grab and Gojek - which collect a fee of about 20 per cent per fare from drivers - by charging them a daily subscription fee of less than US$5 if a driver's income exceeds US$30 a day. National Private Hire Vehicles Association executive adviser Ang Hin Kee said: "Collecting subscription fees is one novel way of recruiting drivers, but the litmus test is ease of getting commuters and collecting good earnings." He added: "If they can do more for drivers, such as providing insurance coverage and helping with Medisave, it will enhance their attractiveness and assure commuters that this new app has a big pool of drivers to serve their needs." Others, however, are sceptical about FastGo's chances. "It really depends on how much resources they can put in," said Singapore University of Social Sciences urban transport expert Park Byung Joon. "If they not have much resources to attract more drivers, it will be just another small storm in a tea cup." FastGo aims to raise US$50 million in the coming months to fund its regional expansion plans. In comparison, Grab recently announced it had secured some $2 billion in funding. Said Associate Professor Park: "Unless they (FastGo) can give more to drivers and commuters than Grab, it will be tough for them to compete." https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/new-ride-hailing-firm-fastgo-to-debut-here-in-april so any promo code ?
