Diam diam? Don’t think just bcos you’re a regular here and you have a lot of allies, then nobody dare to call out your bs. 1k per day? Sure it is possible, but do it for 1 wk consistently then I will kneel on durian for you. With 1 day off, show me a 6k earnings for that week and it’s all justgrab, not 6s or 6s premium. Any experienced driver can earn 1k for 1 particular day, there’s so many ways to work around it, just work yourself into the ground for 24 hours and then rest for the whole of the next day or even get a twin brother or someone who takes the risk and uses your account to continue driving the rest of the 24hours, or optimise your AR and CR and at the end of the week, pick 1 day to cherry pick for 24hours to the max and still meet the 30/30 requirement, seriously if you really want to make this target possible, you can even accept and complete immediately all cash jobs without driving just to make your total look so amazing. Don’t be arrogant about one-off huat earnings, the really experienced drivers will be able to tell if it’s something realistic or not. I don’t ask for much, just 6days of not having a proper meal and sleep, earning 1k per day for 6 days. Prove that’s it’s possible, I take out from my own pocket another 1k give you.

wah, why u so angsty?

i guess we might have accidentally make u so angry.

U think too much.

Now is price war btw grab n gojek. Both side competing whose fare is lowest.

June fare is very chui probably school holidays. Fare war more stiff. As for marina one i long gave up there got better playground already. There also LTA magnet.

This mth should be back to normal.

My #locationadvantage referring to sk and punggol area more high demand and surge vs jurong area high demand but lower surge.

It’s my long debate with those drivers staying that area. The debate is cos of their starting location advantage after a few trips they will earn 25-50% higher then where i am staying in jurong. So end of the day they probably still edge by 15-20% overall fares.

Eg jurong go cbd at most these days $25 and below but sk/punggol maybe $30-40+ or even higher?

Or maybe lucky... short trip already $20+. Last fri i did one at serangoon north to newton already $21.

I dun find these fares in jurong/bukit batok area.

Not a clone, I just created an account. Previously I’ve been reading this thread to kill time during my breaks. I’ve been doing phv for the last 2 years. You guys need to remember that the pie is only so big, if you tell people how big your slice is, you think there won’t be others who wanna go and find your pie? Next day you go back, no more treasure left for yourself. If you ask a company’s ceo how well they’re doing, a good ceo will never tell you they’re earning big bucks.

In the past this thread has been filled with drivers sharing their msw trips of $40-$50 just for mid-distance trips. Well, where are these trips now? Someone said Marina one is kan disgusting now, phv all mass orgy over there now. Whose fault is it? You brought it upon yourselves right? Go to marina one during PM peak now and ask the drivers camping there, whether the surge is still good? Surge drop and cbd more congested now .

Noah can do premium 6s. Grand scenic FC is like 15 to 17km/l I heard. Will save alot on fuel cost compared to Noah? Noah I think average 18km/l
FC almost the same, but remember GS is on Diesel, it like half price for the same distance. And GS interior system got color-theme leh, lol, but I dun like the screen system, look odd n kinda ugly, I like big, but not too big. GS test-driven, The Diesel engine can be abit noisy for most. Lots of power and spacious. But $92 daily, 1yr contract and deposit 1.5, Abit scary.

Noah kinda of upgrade version of Freed n Sienta, more spacious n more power.

June’s fares during peak hours, tbh with you, was still the same. I’m talking from the view of a cherry picker. As long as you are you in the right place and at the right time, the surge is still good. The only difference between now and before gojek, is those surge playgrounds are not able to hold their surge for long. Peak hours surge maybe 10mins, then crash. Then gojek will surge, basically they both keep taking turns because all the customers will book on the cheaper platform, surge only switch to the other platform.

This is what I learnt from cherry picking on both platforms that now I have a rather good understanding. When grab surges higher than gojek, there will still be some people who book grab. Reasons could anything like: tourists who don’t know any better, people claiming OT, gojek no driver accept and they need to get moving asap, loyal grab users, corporate accounts.

When gojek surges higher than grab during peak hours: NOBODY books gojek, I can tell you that for a fact right now from my exp of cherry picking on gj. You might have 1 or 2 bodoh tourist who do it, simply bcos their hotel staff tell them “gojek always cheaper” or at the very rare ulu places that there is not enough grab drivers. The app is totally silent when gojek surge is at its maximum. If you don’t believe me, whenever you receive a gojek booking, go and check grab’s price. 9.9/10 times you have business is because you’re the cheaper 1. There is no such thing as a loyal gojek customer.

So what happens when both companies surge prices are around the same during peak hours? People will book grab, why? Grab gives customer reward points and grab drivers more often than not, tend to arrive quicker.

Every now and then, I get customers who come into the car and tell me how exp grab is, I always tell them the same thing....out of 24 hours in a day, taxi surge 12 hours 6pm-6am. Grab surge timings is much lesser than that. If 24 hours no surge, which driver wanna work? If you don’t wanna pay surge, please go and wait at the taxi stand along with the rest, however long it might take you. You wanna skip the queue, you want somebody appear and take you home fast and you want cheap..got such thing ah?

There are those customers who wanna book grab to work cos cheap...book book book....cannot get driver, then grab surge...mai liao now I book gojek....book book book cannot get driver, then gojek surge...oh grab surge drop already...I book grab again...until finally really late for work...no choice pay surge...come inside car face black and ask you drive faster cos late for work...but in the first place you wanna be cheapo right? If got incentive drivers around the area you lucky la, driver accept. If all the incentive drivers got jobs already, either you suck it up and pay surge, or pls go to the main road and try to hail a taxi like the rest.

Been in your situation many times, I always check the gps, if your route is quicker in terms of time taken, I go by your route. If my gps route is faster, I will show you the gps as proof. If you insist on going by your way, I will not say anything to you, I will simple charge you $5 for additional distance. I will leave in the feedback that “rider insists on going by abc route instead of xyz route, when gps shows it is xkm longer and xminutes delay. Additional distance charged.”

Done this so many times, no issues. Grab has a policy clearly stated in the user app, that driver has the right to pick the fastest/shortest route because it is a flat upfront fare. I used to quarrel with customers before, I said uncle, you wanna choose your route, I stop the car now, you go take taxi. Taxi run on meter, we flat fare. I follow gps because I lost count of the number of times I try to act smart and now follow gps, and ended up in a very bad jam. Nowadays I don’t argue anymore, I just charge. Because if I tell you I charge, u give me 1star. I don’t tell you, later you see receipt you also give me 1star. No difference to me, rating cannot feed me, I carry balls for the next few customers, your 1star rating is neutralized already.

No. Here also angry post

On a side note, I remember our fellow drivers used to complain about cheapo with babies and still wanna book justgrab. I ever had a customer ask me 1 day, driver ah...I have a kid at home...I just wanna ask you...will you fetch anot usually? Why some drivers can why some cannot?

I told her, mdm let me explain to you. If I take the risk and pick your child without a child seat, if we get into an accident, there is no insurance coverage for your child. In other words, if you child gets seriously hurt or even dies, you won’t get a single cent. If you want, you have to sue me, i where got money pay you? This trip I’m taking you, how much only? If other drivers wanna take this kind of risk, it’s their own business. But if LTA catch, what will you tell the LTA? Will you say you don’t know, driver accept so we just board the car, or will you say it’s your own fault for being cheapo?

Is this a trick question? Who is the commuter that going to pay for your usage? If there's no riders on your vehicle, who going to pay for it. Even now, you can find news of passengers refusing to pay for ERP for their ride.

Now if you going into ERP gantry, rider cancelled, you suey lor, you need to pay the $2, and ERP 2.0 you will be charge according to time n distance, imagine that when you caught in a orchard jam..

Now $2 only, passengers also complain or refuse, imagine when you have ask them for ERP base on time. Gd luk. Lol. Some drivers for the sake of ratings or dun want to waste time, they usually pay the $1-3 erp themselves, in future, drivers can tahan to absorb anot?

Nothing is confirmed at this point. So dont assume. Wait for official news.
You never know. Maybe it might be beneficial.
Btw, if got ERP, i just charge accordingly. No one ask you to absorb.
