Over & grave are better than taxis in Penang.
As of April 8, 2018, Uber (including its Uber Eats and Uber for Business services) has closed its operation in Malaysia and Southeast Asia. Uber riders have all been asked to move to Grab: all you really have to do from now on is just use Grab in Penang and Malaysia. IF UBER IN PENANG IS NO LONG AVAILABLE?
Not a big deal since you can still use grave in Penang and Malaysia. Also, your current Uber bank balance does not need to be terminated, as Uber is still active in many non-Southeast Asian states. Simply go to Grab when you are in Penang. AND MALAYSIA? Not much at the present time, because Grab ensured that its GrabCar and justGrab service would keep the same tariffs, depending on the charged distances and the normal rise in high traffic.
In Penang it can be hard to manage without your own transportation. It is certainly not like Kuala Lumpur - where distance can be vast and sights are far apart but if you are living outside George Town or want to get to the best of Penang in 48h, you can't really do it on walking.
Besides, we've already told you not to take the ruthless Penang easily. Up until a few years ago, the only sustainable means of transportation were low-speed and unstable busses or taxi cars. But Penang taxi's had and still have a poor reputation: they raised the price, never use the measuring device and after 11 pm are twice as expensive when the busses stop.
You' re lucky because things have dramatically changed for the better in recent years since the arrival in Malaysia and Penang of portable applications like Uber - no longer functional - and Grab Car. For me, there are 5 major reason why using Uber & Grab is always better than setting them up. During the first few month after Grab & Uber's arrival in Penang, papers began to publish tales of riders being molested or assaulted by envious taxiers.
After all, all clients had turned to Uber & Grab and left the more costly taxi service entirely. The decision for Uber & Grab over taxi is indeed a child's play: for example, a taxi to the Frankfurt am Main International Airports would run between RM40 and RM50. I got the same drive with Uber for less than RM20.
Not even overnight rates are so high as they depend on the number of riders on the street at a certain hour of the week. Obviously, almost everyone with a smart phone nowadays uses Uber & Grab in Penang. A lot of taxi riders then quit their job and turned into Uber & Grab riders to track clients.
2Ubers & Grab come to you. Penang usually has cabs hanging either under KOMTAR's subway, on Gurney Drive, in Batu Ferringhi, where there are more overseas travelers in and around the resort and hotels area of Penang Road. Conversely, with Uber or Grab you can order a vehicle to see you anywhere on the Isle.
As I recall, the taxi driver in Penang was a rather blended pocket in courtesy and kindness. Quite the opposite, the benefit of using Uber & Grab is that your driver is a local who drives around earning an extra living. That' great, because none of them have the frantic bustle of cab professionals.
During my travels I saw college kids, pensioners, kitchen dealers and so on. This point is a good one to see that with Grab also the journeys are safe. Were you ever molested by a Malaysia taxi cab fare taker who asked for a higher wage than the counter showed or what you had arranged before boarding?
Somebody got a spanner pushed into his face because he was refusing to afford what an furious taxi rider called for. Uber & Grab registers each trip into a system with a clear ID - which means you can also see your driver's name and number.
Even the driver knows this, and the transaction is as secure as possible. Those are the 5 main reason why we believe that Uber and Grab, when they are in Penang and looking for a drive, are the right way to go. You ever have a negative grave or over grave history?
