ComfortDelGro launches ride-hailing service
Singapore’s ComfortDelGro Taxi will launch a beta trial of its new ride-hailing service on February 3, 2021, according to a press statement. The service will support its 10,000-strong taxi fleet and a small number of private hire cars (PHCs) available only on the ComfortRIDE booking option.
The company is working closely with the National Taxi Association (NTA) and the National Private Hire Vehicle Association (NPHVA) to roll out the beta version of the new ride-hailing service with a very small number of PHCs, said CEO Ang Wei Neng.
ComfortDelGro currently has a total fleet size of over 41,000 buses, taxis and rental vehicles. The company also runs 83km of light and heavy rail networks in Singapore. Besides Singapore, ComfortDelGro has global operations in countries such as Australia, China, the UK, Ireland, Vietnam and Malaysia.
