Mr Alex Lim, are you here? Remember: You need Grab more than it needs you.

——-
Anti-competition conditions for Grab affect drivers

I am disappointed at how the Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore (CCCS) has directed Grab to maintain its pre-merger prices in its latest decision (Grab, Uber fined $13m for violating competition laws; Sept 25).

CCCS obviously did not give a thought to the welfare and livelihood of people like me who are Grab drivers.

Already, the prices before the merger were low, and drivers are now still having problems earning a sustainable income.

Preventing Grab from changing its fares means drivers will continue to suffer.

While I understand that there is a need to address commuters' complaints about spending more on transportation, the solution should not be at the expense of drivers.

I hope the CCCS will not impose more conditions like these on Grab.

Making it difficult for Grab to do business in Singapore will only make drivers like me suffer more in the end.

Alex Lim

Mr Kenny Lim, are you here? Yes, passengers don’t care whether it is a taxi or a private hire car. Passengers only want it cheap.

Competition watchdog should add taxis to ride-hailing market definition

As a private-hire driver, I agree with Grab Singapore head Lim Kell Jay that the Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore (CCCS) has taken a very narrow definition of the ride-hailing market (Grab, Uber fined $13m for violating competition laws; Sept 25).

It baffles me that CCCS does not consider taxi operators to be competition for Grab in Singapore. Private-hire drivers compete with taxis for customers every single day.

When I chat with passengers, most of them admit to comparing the prices and promotions available between taxis and ride-hailing services before deciding which to take.

Some even submit their requests for service on multiple providers and take the ride from the driver who reaches first.

Ultimately, passengers do not differentiate between a taxi or a private car.

They just want a vehicle to take them where they would like to go.

If we think about it further, why did taxi drivers cry foul over the rise in ride-hailing apps in the past if the two sides are not competitors?

I hope the CCCS will revise its market definition to reflect the real situation.

Kenny Lim

The taxman collected S$50.2 billion last year – an increase of 6.8% – and nearly $5 billion in stamp duties.

For commercial driving, need to have comprehensive coverage.
No. 3 policy is not applicable except for p10 (self-drive).
Pls note ncd (if any) may be carried to and fro.

Also to factor in 100 dollars to lta for conversion and also 20dollars for the famous blue sticker be4 can drive for rewards

Hope the above helps.
