LTA has acknowledged that third-party taxi booking services facilitate more efficient matching of taxis with commuters and have become popular and beneficial. A basic regulatory framework is expected to be rolled out soon.
We take you through the debate that has been going on. The points raised are not exhaustive. But utimately, Transport App Providers have become popular over the past year or so because they seem to finally solve the long standing woe of not being able to secure a taxi when one needs a ride, especially during peak hours. Playing hide and seek with taxis is a game nobody enjoys.
As a supporter of Smart Regulation, I welcome the disruption of these transport app providers to the frustrating status quo and am confident LTA will be sensible about regulating these new solution providers.
LTA? Over to you!
