Why when i'm inside big red patch bo surge 1? damn piss. paiseh i G noob. last time uber can see clearly how much surge.
This is very Normal some time you inside the big red patch Grab can match you outside the zone with lousy Fare, far away pick up plus long time to reach your pickup location and the rider maybe cancel when you half way. I kanna cancel many time liao lor so i see far away i text them to cancel don't wast my time and petrol go hahaha...

So the question is when you will get the surge call with high fare??? when you kana many low fare job and you happen inside the red patch you high chance will get it. So the good fare is been allocated (I think so...) is not what Grab claim the nearest driver will get to booking Is this kind of tricks consider cheating?

nowadays seems like the grab is eating about 300mb data per day and more keep complaining i am on a slow network with a yellow bar =/

any advice? many thanks
Yes, switch to a iPhone. The data consumption affects only Android phones.

Grab has superuser access to Android phones but for iPhones, Grab cannot do it as Apple is very strict.

Red Patch is not surge, it's 'high demand' & there are more riders requesting trips. It simply meant you may get a trip(ping) easily. Grab's surge is not dependent on red/green/yellow patches. Conversely, white patch may have high price.

The algorithm is very different from Uber. Once you stop comparing the 2, you'll be happier.

Nowadays, that's the rate for NORMAL drive.
Grab driver's Net profit = $4/hour (unlucky) to $8/hour (lucky).

IF you count the Personal Income Tax and Medisave contribution, practically not much CASH left.

(So many times complaint to Grab quoting them, "Driver's Risky job, Worse than McDonald's worker $5 to $6/hour with CPF contribution, AWS, Bonus, medical benefits and annual leave. But got Car to drive.")

End of the Day, just drive lor...
Drivers are expendable, and insignificant to Grab. .
You don't drive, Grab still have many drivers to replace you.

Testing water as Grab driver

12.26pm-12mn (12hr)
total fare $203 after deduction left $162.4
Rental $75 + Petrol $20
Nett earning $67.40
Each hour earn $7.09

1.30pm - 10pm (9.5Hr)
total fare $193 after deduction left $154.4
Rental $75 + Petrol $20
Nett earning $59.40 / Each hour earn $6.25

Testing water as Ryde
1pm - 11pm (10hr)
total fare $206.40 after deduction left $187.72
Rental $75 + Petrol $25 (longer distance to pickup)
Nett earning $87.72 / Each hour earn $8.78
Slow payment need around two weeks,
and need fast hand fast leg very stress

TADA yet to try
But feel will be better due to the fare is calculate base on Time and distance. 0% commission

hahaha... Ho tan Bo???

This Red, Amber, Yellow, Green thingy, trick to attract driver there and shocked to pick-up terrible pricing and GrabShare. Grab stated Red is Very High demand and usually with Higher fare. The word is "usually".

Avoid rushing there and just pick-up nearby. Grab very tricky since last QTR 2017.

Red Patch is not surge, it's 'high demand' & there are more riders requesting trips. It simply meant you may get a trip(ping) easily. Grab's surge is not dependent on red/green/yellow patches. Conversely, white patch may have high price.
