Do you think Grab implementing a $0.30 platform fee matters much to consumers?

Grab to implement 30-cent platform fee for rides from Dec 18. But they do have market share anyway, and consumers will likely still use Grab.

Like what Jiayee said, even with the $0.30 fee, Grab will stay the cheapest in addition to the convenience it brings us. Personally will still use grab. And since this fee will go towards giving the drivers better welfare, I believe most people would be supportive of this. As supported by a survey reported by Straits Times:

8 in 10 Singaporeans willing to pay more for essential services: Survey https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/manpower/8-in-10-singaporeans-willing-to-pay-more-for-essential-services

So to answer your questions, it won’t matter much!

Not really. the driver is not benefitting from these platform fees, they still earning the same amount. Higher fees less customers.

Just a stupid reason for them to impose extra cost that's all....
