The Fight Against COVID-19

The Fight Against Covid

The fight against COVID-19 is an arduous one. Many organisations have been doing their best to keep COVID-19 at bay.

ComfortDelGro Taxi has also been doing the same, and we don’t intend to stop until it’s over.  

We Are United

We are in this together and stand united to weather this storm with our cabbies. Even members of the public have come to appreciate and encourage our cabbies.

Safeguards For Our Customers

We have not let our guards down and have put up several precautionary measures in place to ensure our taxis are safe for travel.

+ Cabbies have temperature checked twice daily
+ Cabbies have been given hand sanitisers, disinfectant’s and surgical masks
+ Taxis are cleaned regularly and sprayed with anti-microbial disinfectant
+ Windows can be wound down for better air circulation
+ Contact between customers and cabbies is minimised with in-app cashless payments and e-receipts
+ V-Shield trialled in 400 taxis
+ SafeEntry QR Code in all taxis
+ Unique Pay for Street Hail feature in app that helps with contact tracing

 

V-Shield

Social distancing takes on new meaning with new plastic shields that are going up in 400 ComfortDelGro taxis. Called V-shield, the locally-manufactured shields have been trademarked by Moove Media, a wholly-owned subsidiary of ComfortDelGro Corporation. It covers the driver’s cabin entirely, and has two “window” openings for passengers to make payment. The shields are made of an unbreakable plastic material which enables it to serve as an added protection against any violent physical harm. It encases only the driver’s cabin area and does not obstruct airflow in the rest of the cab.

Service To The Community

+ Taxis continue to serve on the roads and even at hospitals
+ Through the Sayang Sayang Fund, a Community Impact Fund started by the Community Foundation of Singapore, $110,000 worth of taxi vouchers went towards healthcare workers and vulnerable communities such as isolated seniors and low-income families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic
+ Another $80,000 worth of promo codes was given to the public healthcare sector to defray taxi fares for their healthcare workers
+ Fares for ComfortRIDE, our fixed fare option, remains reasonable even now
+ The ComfortDelivery platform allows both F&B owners and the public healthcare sector to tap on ComfortDelGro taxis for meals and medication deliveries
