COMMENT The government should forget about trying to regulate Uber and Grabcar until it has solved the issues relating to public transport.
Both ride-sharing services thrive because they are able to fill the vacuum created by poor planning. Those in the ivory tower appear to know nothing about the suffering that people go through.
For example, a taxi ride for Mona Lisa, Rekha, Vijaya, Vino, Uma and Kalai from Taman Wahyu KTM station to their homes in Bandar Baru Selayang costs RM18. They have to commute to work every day by train.
