Still undecided who to drive for? Grab has drawn up a comparison between earning potentials between a Comfort DelGro Taxi Driver and Grab Private-Hire Driver.

With the new Grab Never Seen Before Deal for Comfort DelGro Taxi Drivers, ex-Comfort DelGro taxi drivers can expect to make up to $2000 more per month with all the incentives and savings they can receive from this promotion.

$2000 more a month? Sure boh

Grab has even interviewed 2 ex Comfort DelGro Taxi Drivers to take a shot at their ex-companies. Both drivers shared how much more they could make by driving with Grab and how their ex Taxi company is not keeping up with times and does not take care of their drivers.

Consolidating of Power

The latest promotion is round 2 of efforts to poach Comfort DelGro Drivers. During round 1 of promotion which offered big rental discount to Comfort Taxi Drivers, it was reported that close to 3000 taxi drivers expressed interest in signing up with Grab.

After the latest round of US$700million funding, Grab announced their ambition to build the biggest fleet of vehicles in the region. That can explain why they are offering such attractive terms to build up their driver base to support their ambition. Market observers also see this as a strategy to indirectly attack Uber, who has been in partnership talks with Comfort Delgro.

This round of promotion is expected to recruit more Comfort DelGro taxi drivers to jump ship and further heighten the vacancy problems of Comfort Taxis.

Does the consolidation of power in Grab’s possession spell more troubled times ahead for existing private-hire drivers?
