e-Hailing: Is The Fare Fair?

Arif Asyraf, President, Grab Drivers Association Malaysia

e-Hailing: Is The Fare Fair?

Transport Minister Anthony Loke says there are no plans to set a floor price for e-hailing services, as it may lead to higher fares that will burden customers. Drivers worry that if the government does not take action, e-hailing companies may manipulate the fares and that will impact their welfare. We speak to a representative of the Grab Drivers Association Malaysia on what needs to be done, and listeners share their thoughts.
