This morning was **** for my though, no pings for a long period of time

Today drive was quite good. Had to chiong 19 trips between 9am to 6pm to hit the mid tier 69 trips for $204 incentive. At about 5.40pm I still needed 2 more trips. One $20 trip came in but I took the gamble and ignored it hoping for next Grabshare. Wah it really came and I got matching to downtown for also $20. Total fares today for 22 trips is $425.50. I can only recall one other time that I exceeded $400 in fares collected. So quite satisfied today. :)

we may be seeing a beginning of the end....

So basically "level" the ground is what was touted but the end result of it is - an uneven ground.

The reality is taxi drivers and companies want a competitive advantage, not level ground.

More superheroes are arriving at an auspicious time.
------------------
Unflagging interest in private-hire car sector

Besides Grab, there are nine companies operating private-hire car service, or have announced plans to do so in Singapore

Even as taxi companies go through a resurgence following Uber's departure, other firms are keen on capturing a slice of Singapore's private-hire market.

What the taxi companies should be dealing with is dig deep into their own system and see how they can provide better benefits and value to taxi drivers. Not how to create uneven competition in the market like Taxi vs PHV now.

Without doing that, the next time a cash-rich PHV player comes into the scene, it will be a vicious cycle all over again.

All because of what? All because the Taxi industry refused to evolve.

Just wonder why all of u used auto accept ? Got priority in getting jobs ?

Still have to wait. But won't forget to accept job. There was once busy changing cash for passenger and forget to accept.

Not sure why, but some jobs are not 15s, think 5s to 10s only to accept.

Yes still possible. Just be realistic that driving such limited hours, your earnings will not be much. Don't forget ERP too.
