Following our discussions yesterday from here (my bad, it's my mistake for posting there in the first place. ), there's good news, though I'm not sure it'll help much...

Drivers Given Extra Time

PUTRAJAYA: Although e-hailing drivers have been given extra time to get themselves licensed, enforcement towards operators who flout regulations will go on as planned.
...

“I want to remind all EHOs (e-hailing operators) that enforcement begins today. There is no postponement.

“But for e-hailing drivers who are caught not having a PSV (passenger service vehicle) licence or driving a car that does not fulfil the requirements, our enforcement officers will give them final warnings.

“This is a ‘soft landing’ approach, to allow e-hailing drivers to get themselves licensed within the three months,” said Loke at a press conference here after chairing his ministry’s post-Cabinet meeting.

Grabbed these couple of days, no noticeable difference in the rates nor availability.

Anyone know if Grab drivers will drive from JB City Square to Desaru? Anyone try before?
And is Grab available in Desaru or have to use local taxi? Thanks in advance.

You will get quoted for JB to Desaru although I am not sure if there will be takers. After all Desaru is not served by Grab- you will get a notice that says something to the effect.

May i ask the experts here, if I grab from Aeon Tebrau City to Malaysian custom, should I tell him to go to CIQ or just City Square. It appears to be that the road leading to CIQ is often jammed and may get stuck there. If tell him to go City Square, will it help to make my trip faster?

Thanks.

You answered your own question. You should indicate "JB Sentral CIQ Main Entrance", instead of "JB Sentral CIQ Drop Off". The Main Entrance is on the side with the Caltex and faces "Johor Bahru City Square Levi's" diagonally.

Was waiting for this, as all the part-timers that I came across told me they're quitting, when I asked around the time of the previous deadline...
