Having to fork out five times the normal taxi fare – or in the case of displaced train commuters, 80 times their usual MRT fare – is not something anyone relishes.
Uber and ComfortDelGro’s new ride-hailing option that uses surge pricing makes its debut.
If the ComfortDelGro-Uber deal is allowed, the market will revert to its David-Goliath imbalance. But unlike the biblical outcome, Goliath almost always wins in any marketplace.
Five other taxi firms already offer dynamic pricing for bookings made with Grab app.
$642m deal comes after taxi giant’s likely tie-up with Uber was announced in August.
An alliance could allow Comfort to expand its booking reach while giving Uber ready access to a large fleet of vehicles.
Will they just share a booking app? Consolidate their fleet size? Set up a joint venture? Or even have a buyout? These are all options.
The move could result in ComfortDelGro’s 15,500 taxis being made available through Uber’s ride-hailing app.
Commuters taking ComfortDelgro taxis can now pay their fares using digital wallet application Alipay.
