21 January 2015 – Despite growing competition from independent third party booking apps, ComfortDelGro Taxis registered a new record of 35.6 million bookings for the year ended 31 December 2014.
The new high has taken on even greater significance given the fact that about half of all bookings were conducted through the Group’s taxi booking app. Since its launch in 2010, ComfortDelGro’s taxi booking app has registered a total of 2.5 million downloads.
The highest number of taxi bookings catered in a single day – 124,426 bookings – took place on 31 October, one of the wettest Fridays in 2014. The booking record was about 28% more than the daily average. Indeed, taxi booking demand peaked at over 3.1 million bookings in August – 6% more than the monthly average – as the Southwest monsoon season hit.
