Registering to both grabcar and uber possible? In principle, it can generate more money for the tenant (Uber during surge hours, grab during off hours.).

From what I've surveyed among uber drivers now, tis really a tough time to have uber as a business due to the absence of promos that were prevalent before. Might consider waiting this out until the supply of uber drivers go down.

From Regular taxi to uber/grab operator now back to regular taxi.

 

Uber/Grab was a very lucrative source of income before, including the drivers who are earning much more than driving a regular taxi unit. However, due the fluctuating promos lately I don't see myself going back to either. Kawawa ung driver. I still have a few GRAB cars though pero ginawa ko na silang boundary system na 800 a day instead of 50/50 cut.

 

Too bad, both these TNC's aren't as promising as it was. Lakas lang nila makatubong lugaw. LOL!:) 20% from Gross?SMH!! MGE one of the pioneer operators has ther own app now and they have more than 1000 units not including EFE EMP and other partner operators.

 

Anyway, goodluck to existing UBER and GRAB operators!!

Yep, I asked the Uber driver yesterday, dati pala they have a promo na 15 trips in 60 hours, guaranteed 15K agad. Now wala na.

Umaasa na lang sila sa surge. kaya most of them lumalabas na lang pag rush hours.

 

80/20 ang share ng Driver and Uber.

I was thinking buying a car to enter this business however now I don't think it's a good business for now since there is no more incentives and the income is too low. They should raise the price or cut their share.

Uber and grab drivers now are on boundary system ranging from 850-1000 php a day. If you're an operator i'd suggest you do the same rather than risk it on the low incentives that both companies are implementing now.

Better yet, why not be an operator driver? :)

was thinking of getting a car before for this but based on my conversations with drivers/operators it's a bad idea now. swerte ng mga nakapasok last year until Sept of this year, for sure nabawi kaagad yung pinambili ng car.

Yea, pwede pa rin naman today. However, the operator is the driver narin. :) Risk aversion is low pag ikaw pa din ang driver. Kita pa din kahit pano.

Was talking to a Driver/Operator yesterday, sabi nya tigil muna daw sa pag approve ng new applications yung Uber. Masyado na daw saturated yung market.

I see. Parang on and off naman si uber/grab when it comes to applications. Also learned na Grab is already accepting bribes to speed up application.
