In a response to a parliamentary question, the Minister of Transport said that Grab has complied with the government’s requirement to give commuters at least seven days noticed for any changes in their schemes and fees and that all “setting of (ride-hailing) fares” are commercial decisions made by ride-hailing operators which the government does not intervene in.
