Singapore’s Second Minister for Transport, Ng Chee Meng, has put out a Facebook post, clarifying the fate of the private car drivers who have been affected by Grab’s takeover of Uber SEA announced recently.

“The Private Hire Car (PHC) industry has been through a lot lately. I met a number of PHC drivers and taxi drivers following the announcement of Grab’s merger with Uber’s Southeast Asia operations. Many of the drivers are understandably concerned, as the merger affects their jobs and livelihoods,” he wrote.

He added that Workforce Singapore and NTUC’s Employment and Employability Institute (e2i) have been working closely with the PHC Booking Service Operators (BSOs) and the National Private Hire Vehicle Association to offer employment assistance to affected drivers and employees.

As yet, no additional details have been provided on the type of assistance that will be provided.
