TL;DR – Not that they have to anyway.
Can you remember how life was like before Uber? When we had to rely on that one taxi booking app and fumbling with cash at the end of every taxi ride?
It took me a while to get used to the idea of private hire drivers (it’s so weird to sit in some stranger’s car?!) but it’s definitely one of those I’m glad I did and never looked back moments in life. These days, I practically can’t live without Uber. I use it on an almost daily basis, even when I travel – I’ve tried it without any hiccups in New York, Bali, Hong Kong and Bangkok – and I never thought I would say this, but I also pretty much enjoy the random uberPOOL rides and meeting new riders along the way.
It’s been four years since Uber entered Singapore and the company recently celebrated their 4th anniversary party.
Happy birthday Uber, and you can cry if you want to. But hey, with one million active Singaporeans on your app, why would you need to?
