ComfortDelGro to launch dynamic pricing fare option for its taxis from Jan 19 | The Straits Times

An Uber spokesman said on Thursday that the company will share more details of UberFlash later on.

He said: “We are excited about our partnership with ComfortDelGro to improve the overall transportation landscape, giving Singapore more choices to move around at the tap of a button.”

Following ComfortDelGro’s tie-up with Uber, all 23,000 taxis in Singapore will offer a dynamic pricing option.

Since March last year, close to 10,000 taxis from the five other taxi firms – SMRT, Trans-Cab, Premier, Prime and HDT Singapore Taxi – have started offering dynamic pricing, if rides are booked through the Grab app.

Singapore University of Social Sciences transport researcher Walter Theseira said that with all cabs now offering dynamic pricing, it is likely that the average taxi fare paid during peak hours will go up, but commuters should benefit from shorter waiting times.

But whether commuters will have to fork out more than what a regular taxi charges, with peak-hour surcharges and levies thrown in, boils down to the day’s demand and supply, he added.
