Here comes the fights!! 5x!! Big Grin smaller and more nimble! Tongue

All these small folks meet the chicken and egg question of how to build the network of users/drivers. One of them (Go-Jek?) probably has to work with ComfortDelgro to have a chance to un-sit the "Grab+all others except ComfortDelgro" team.

RE: Comfort Delgro
I am not sure whether private car hirers joining hands with local taxi fleets help. Every time I request for JustGrab, 99% of the time, a private car came instead of a taxi. This was also the case in Uber previously. Seems taxi drivers are picking and choosing. I guess most are financially independent and just passing time driving taxis.

It's not that taxi drivers are financially independent, the main reason is pricing of jobs from Grab is simply too low compared to what they can get under normal taxi rates. JustGrab gross rates are already 10% lower than taxis without surge and coupled with anywhere between 20% - 50% being withheld as commission depending on the drivers' service tier, it simply makes no sense to go for jobs that are paying net 30% - 60% lower when the Comfort App is still able to bring reasonable number of bookings.

Grab drivers are sometimes forced to accept even loss making or breakeven trips in order to bump up their service tiers and more importantly those who are driving their own car or leasing at some discount rates of $60 per day are still able to make the job barely profitable.

With money getting more expensive (rise of interest rates) and memories/stories of bruising fights still fresh, will new participants (if any) actually "learn" to co-exist together?
