COMFORTDELGRO TAXI EXTENDS FULL RENTAL WAIVER BY ANOTHER MONTH TILL 1 JUNE 2020
22 April 2020 – ComfortDelGro Taxi will be extending the full taxi rental waiver for its cabbies by another month as the nation grapples with unprecedented challenges brought on by the COVID-19 outbreak.
This is in line with the extension of the circuit breaker period, which was originally slated to end on 4 May, but will now be extended to 1 June 2020.
ComfortDelGro Taxi CEO Ang Wei Neng said: “With the circuit breaker period being extended by another month and further tightening of the existing circuit breaker measures, our cabbies will continue to be hard-hit and find it difficult to make ends meet. We have therefore decided to waive
the taxi rental in full till the end of the extended circuit breaker period. Times like these, we have to band together and face the challenges together.”
The further full rental waiver is expected to cost the Company an additional $17 million, bringing the total relief package given to ComfortDelGro cabbies to $116 million.
