Grab warns of increase in fares with new regulation

PETALING JAYA: With the possibility of fewer drivers on the road because of new regulations by the government, users may experience an increase in “dynamic” fares, says ride-hailing company Grab.

Passengers were also advised that getting a ride would be much easier outside the peak hours of 7am-9am and 5pm-8pm.

The company said while the intention to implement e-hailing regulations was announced last year, the actual process only started in April 2019.

Drivers have to undergo a six-hour training session at driving centres and pay up to RM200 for the PSV licence.
