About vs. grave vs. taxis: What is the cheapest means of transport and when?
All of us know that MRI is less expensive than a taxi, but if you're travelling with your friends or relatives, a taxi trip can be less expensive than MRI, and you can take advantage of the comfort it offers. Now that Grab and Uber have recently reduced their rates, it is a good chance to find out which is the best among the three and in which scenario.
As we know, there are several taxi operators in Singapore, each with a different basic rate according to the type of car you drive. We use the lowest basic rate - the Comfort Hyundai Sonata - to cover all cabs. Outside the basic rate, taxi journeys are calculated approximately according to the same methodology, as follows:
Uber reported in mid-April that ÜberX tariffs will be cut by about 15%. This is how the distribution looks after the ticket price reduction: Grab also responded to Uber's ticket price cut by lowering its ticket prices and even deleting the $8-limit. This is how Grab's tariffs now look:
Let us take a look at three taxi rides and find out how much each service would charge us. Please be aware that we do not take ERP into account in any comparisons because every service will pass it on to the client anyway. It is clear on the face of it that the recently lowered UberX tariffs win this benchmark with the lowest margin.
Given that taxes and UberX both calculate on the basis of your spent hours, it would probably be wiser to choose GrabCar, which does not burden you in the second step. However, GrabCar practices aggressive price setting on the basis of local availability and availability at the moment of reservation.
As you will receive the price before booking, there should be no unpleasant surprises. Not surprisingly, if there is no top rate supplement, taxi rates are significantly lower than the other two privately owned auto firms.
UberX is the clear champion after 12 p.m., especially if your rider can get you home in records due to the relatively clear streets. Notice that UberX, like GrabCar, is experiencing price increases, which means that price levels are temporary excessive to make sure supplies can satisfy demands. Good tidings are that in my own personal wisdom, the price increase usually doesn't take more than 3-5 min unless you're in a really favorite area.
So, which is the best service? Each of the three sceneries has a different winning team despite the discounts. The GrabCar Economic is usually best suited for trips with the danger of congestion, provided that Grab's aggressive price model does not already take into account the additional travel period.
Taxi cabs are best for non-charge trips, i.e. workdays between 9.30 a.m. and 6 p.m. and weekend and holiday travel between 6.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m. Please be aware that you may pay a little more according to your taxi type, but not enough to justify driving a personal vehicle.
OverX is the best choice for journeys after 12 p.m., which is good to know as most forms of urban transportation would have been discontinued by then. Pay attention to the price increase that usually takes place during these periods, but keep in mind that they usually do not last too long. In the end, fares discounts seem to have led to fairer competition for the consumer, leading to lower transportation charges regardless of when your trip starts.
