    I've got a Friend in this industry. Insider Not as Drivers as depending on which driver you meet their earnings can range from $2k - 10k.
    But for hardworking ones ...by hardworking i mean 12hrs per day 6 days a week. Nett pay minus everything all in can make $5-$7k. Average is $20-$25 per hr. that why you see so many joining the trade.
    Need to highlight this is because the company offers a lot of incentives. I wonder what will happen when they stop paying their Drivers these incentives.

    Grab takes 20% of Driver's gross earnings
    But they also have alot of monetary incentives and they give customers discounts /promotions as well.
    Uber is well known making losses and grab is not making money. They just have a lot of VCs investments. I think the business model is unsustainable in the long run....they probably just want to get majority market share now.

    i hear from some of the grab/uber drivers that they treat this as a second job to fund for their second car. that means they are already earning a good amount in the first place.

    Last month Masayoshi Son the CEO of Softbank invested US$250m with Grab.

    DiDi of China and Alibaba are also coming on board.

    Anthony Tan founder of Grab is making plans to raise $1.5b and I believe he wants to kill UBER & Comfort Delgro.

    All BS.
    Many are mats or chow ah beings who can't afford cars but still wants to have a car to show off.
    So they drive just enough to cover rental so they get 'free' use of a car they otherwise can't afford.
    But with the new road tax decal thingy....one look at the windscreen can expose their game.

    If you follow Uber in the US, the drivers' income began to deteriorate over the last 5 years. It's nearly half from the peak. As Narong pointed out, VCs are funding it the company and their promotions but not the drivers income.

    In the U.K, many prefer to drive to mini cabs (private vehicles) no different to Uber without the app but long established and very reliable. It is also safer as you can't hail it but must call despatch so there is record and audit trail of who picked you up. Btw the new decal was copied from the UK minicab model.

    There is now the growing problem of uber drivers crashing, molest, rape ect despite the tracking.

    Until the one or two players win the turf war, the income will continue to fall. Once they win the turf war, price will shoot up and it will back to decent income for drivers, company makes money but consumers have to pay higher fare.

    Conclusion, wrong time to be driver unless you own your vehicle and work really hard.

    My secondary school friend tells me so far he can earn close to 5k on average after netting off all expenses. But then his work hours are really long - 12 hours during weekdays and even longer during weekends at 16 hours a day, i.e. on the roads except for going home to sleep. I suppose this is good money for the unemployed or those who are not at the PME level, but I don't think it's sustainable in the long run.

    A normal do nothing sit + patrol security guard clocking such monstrous hours can make 3k+ with all the OT, not to mention they still have CPF, bonuses, leave and various medical benefits.

    Ok
    Like today I grab share with one rider.
    My pay is 6 dollar. Only from Sembawang to Admiralty,
    Think another rider most probably also go Woodlands or somewhere nearby my drop off point
    So from Sembawang to Admiralty can earn 12-13 dollr
    Not bad right

    Seems uber and grab strategy quite clear.
    Make money from ipo, when music stops whoever still holding the package die.

    Otherwise we're seeing unsustainable tariffs. Might double once someone who actually needs to make profit run it.

    Maybe st the other end they are hoping to change passenger mindset and get people used to taking private hire.... people who otherwise might be talking the bus or mrt
