    It doesn't sound v cheap. And during peak hours where most ppl need cabs, the price is going to be sky high. In long run, commuters will get screwed for sure!

    So peak period only those who can afford it will take cabs.
    Off peak period cheap cab rides for peasants to take joy rides instead of their usual public transport.
    Win for cabbies and private hire Drivers as they get customers round the clock

    Peak periods likely to see uber n grab undercut fares to fight for passengers.
    On the contrary passengers will be surprise to see fares cut.

    silly tie-up.
    the original uber app is still better.
    almost always giving discounts every week.

    "Apply promo code GET50OFF5 to get 50% off (up to $5) on 10 uberX/uberPOOL rides valid till Sunday, 6AM - 11:59PM!"

    Isn't that competition all about? Service standard, promotion and pricing strategy?

    It's good that LTA let in Uber and Grab. If one party become dominant, the ethics by the former taxi company will reappear again. Isn't that statuary board is all about? Regulating competition through laws?

    Good. The more competition the better. At least, our nus and nuh grads and sinking land idol can be own bosses without the need to go sell kar chng.
