Which rider dont want to pay as low and take advantage of situation, especially when the price is set by a system, and not a direct dealing with the person providing the service?Cheapo refer to the passengers/comsumers not driver or operator.
Imo , need to have 2 criteria to call one cheapo.
1) obessive with low prices.
2) taking advantage of a situation.
An example/story below.
I saw an item in the supermarket. But it is priced at 10 dollars(taxi fare) . So i went over to next door wet market. I saw the same item priced at 9 dollars(GC fare) and the quality is same if not better than supermarket's.
At this point, most people will snap up the item at $1 discount and better quality! But i decide to ask for further discount. The stall owner said $8(JG fare) .
And i knew the unfavourable situation of the stall owner. (Drivers need G, G dont need you). So i ask fod 35%discount priced at 5.5 dollars(GS fare).
The stall owner agreed to sell because they need the sale despite the quality is good!
Morale of story : dont squeeze people's profit dry and dont kick someone down when they are in bad shape.
Be grateful that someone pick you up on a GS booking. Tip them if there is no match GS trip. Their day will be better.!!!
Especially for grab share, the driver can choose not to take the job...whether it affects AR or CR, it's has to be a separate issue, because there are AASNG drivers and cherry picking drivers.
How will the passenger know whether his/her ride is actually aligned with the driver's interest, or his revenue goal/driving style?
I agree that by giving a tip will make anyone happy, but it's just not a common culture in SG, especially for GS riders.
They chose GS because they want to pay the lowest fare to get to their destination. If they want to pay more, they would have chosen JG.
Drivers and Riders always have 2 conflicting sides...same logic as buyer and seller. It's an evergreen fact.
That's why, with fare determined by a system, it actually benefits both parties that there won't be any conflict when it comes to payment.
Both parties have a choice before getting into the car.
Riders have a choice to confirm on their fare.
Drivers have a choice to accept or cancel. Same as that every PHV driver has a choice to drive PHV, nobody put a knife to their neck, forcing them to drive PHV.
There are so many jobs out there, but why PHV? Each driver has their own reason, but it shouldn't be to the point that die die, they can only drive PHV.
