ComfortDelGro opts not to introduce dynamic pricing | Singapore Business Review

Authorities recently gave a go-ahead for taxi operators to introduce dynamic pricing for trips booked through mobile applications. ComfortDelGro has chosen not to introduce such scheme for now, and will instead adopt a flat fare structure for mobile bookings.

According to a report from UOB KayHian, the flat fare structure will be introduced on April 10.

“This is similar to taxi metered fares, except customers can have the transparency of a fixed fare before the journey starts,” said the report.

To recall, Grab rolled out a new dynamic fare pricing service with JustGrab, where commuters can be picked up either by a GrabCar or a taxi.

UOB KayHian noted that compared to ComfortDelGro, taxi drivers partnering JustGrab are offered more options in income stream, which encompass both dynamic and metered fares.
