NETIZEN SAYS GRAB/GOJEK ARE A CURSE, CAN’T FLAG CAB & NO CHOICE BUT TO ACCEPT SURGE PRICE

Ride Hailing apps (Grab, Gojek etc) are a curse in disguise

Nowadays it seems like the price is always hiked up due to a “surge” in demand.

This has also made it extremely difficult to flag down a metered-taxi on the street as most taxi drivers would rather earn the higher fare.

This basically forces us to accept the higher fare as a norm.

Basically it makes getting a cab at regular prices near impossible, at certain times of the day (which seem to be becoming more and more often)

Recently my not so tech-savy aunties had to force themselves to learn how to use Grab app because they are always spending more than 30min trying to flag a cab – so that they can book a ride at a much higher price

Netizens’ comments

  • flagging cab is one thing, then they tell you change shift la nonsense bs excuse again. using apps is still better but like another comment mention – vote w your wallet. there isnt only grab or gojek now.
    try other apps, (ryde,tada, comfort etc) the drivers are actually nicer, and some of them even talk shit about gojek and grab cos of its unscrupulous policies.
  • There was once I was booking a ride from Tampines to Changi Airport. It costed like $35 for a 10mins drive. I ended up taking a bus and mrt with my luggage and backpack.
  • The worst is Gojek, wait for 5mins for a car before timeout due to ‘no driver’ and need to retry. But every reattempt at booking will automatically see a small surge. Every single attempt. End up a $15 dollar becomes $28. Check on another phone, lo and behold, no price surge.
