COMFORTDELGRO TO WAIVE TAXI RENTAL FOR CABBIES AFFECTED BY WUHAN CORONAVIRUS (“WUHAN VIRUS”)
27 January 2020 – ComfortDelGro Taxi will waive the rental should any of its cabbies be placed under quarantine by the Ministry of Health, in relation to the Wuhan Coronavirus (“Wuhan virus”).
The Company will also extend assistance where needed, including financial aid from its Cabby Hardship Fund. It will also work closely with the National Taxi Association and National Transport Workers’ Union (NTWU) to assist its cabbies and staff.
Mr Yang Ban Seng, Managing Director/Group CEO of ComfortDelGro said: “We will do all we can to assist any cabby affected by the virus. The inability to drive has a direct impact on their livelihood and we will assist as best we can.”
Cabbies come into constant contact with passengers and those who wish to don masks can get them from any of the ComfortDelGro fuelling stations or offices. The Company is also providing disinfectant sprays for its cabbies at its fuelling stations.
