JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng commuters can expect delays when requesting Uber and Bolt rides on Monday as drivers and vehicle owners strike over commission rates.
The drivers also want the e-hailing companies to eliminate trip radar services, which are notifications sent to all drivers upon a trip request.According to the E-Hailing Partners Council, the service forces drivers to accept rides without adequate information, including the ride fee, the distance, and pick-up and drop-off locations.
“The pockets of our drivers are empty. Their ability to maintain the vehicles are eroded by day. So that’s why we are embarking on this protest,” E-Hailing Partners Council's Kenny Moretsele said.“Our clients will have to use other means of transportation because there will be serious disruptions since drivers are on the picket line. Clients can try and request, but they will struggle to get a ride.
