What is E- hailing concept of transportation?
Malaysia is about to implement it anytime soon.
“E” commerce in reality means “doing business using electronic means, to transact one’s business “.
It’s modern, fast and easy.
As said, we will transcend into the “e- hailing” system shortly.
With this the Road Transport Department or Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan, its Minister, Y.B. Anthony Loke, has been quite busy promoting it to the public.
Taxis, buses and lorry will move over to “e- services” in the near future.
Except from what I’ve read and gathered from newspaper and news from the media, I have very little info about this subject.
Readers of this blog must surely be interested to know more about “E-Hailing”.
What should I do then?
Organizers of the above course that is my “superiors” have seen it fit to “conduct” the above course themselves.
J.P.J. has obviously supplied the institute particulars regarding the course.
Also in the driving school industry, I happen to have an interest in the “e-hailing” subject too. If possible, I would wish to dish out interesting articles on “e-hailing ” also.
Being unaware of what “e hailing” is all about, will not deter me.
I’ve decided to draw up or what I should say is “draw” up my “idea” of what I think “e-hailing” is.
If what’s evolved ends up being not correct, I will then be extremely sorry. It is not my intention to mislead anybody.
But as an educated person being in the driving business for such a long time, makes me believe that I can’t be very wrong.
Initially, the “e-hailing” concept came about with the advent of GRAB and UBER transport services into the country.
The above are two of the most well known private taxi transport means in other countries as America, England, Australia and other developed countries.
UBER and GRAB used private cars owned by the public.
Owners of such cars believed that “they” own “Posh” and sometimes expensive vehicles which are at times “underused”.
Such owners feel such mentioned vehicles could very well be better used to garner extra financial income instead.
Income derived from such sources could go a long way to help pay up “loans” and “hire purchase” debts.
Initially, the introduction of UBER/GRAB cars into Malaysia was intended to provide cheap and efficient taxi services to the public.
It should be borne in mind public transport like buses trains and others are in fact in a deplorable state.
Taxi drivers have long been offering costly and inefficient services to the Malaysian public for years.
In reality, taxis are badly run and the public suffers.
Malaysian taxi drivers are renowned to be the “worst” in the world.
Now the J.P.J. or the Road Transport Department has agreed to allow private cars to be used as “e-hailing” cars.
Public sufferings, cost and time savings is about to evolve.
Hopefully, good and reliable conditions in the transport arena will prevail.
What types of vehicles will be allowed to be used in the forth coming “e-hailing” industry?
Vehicles less than 5 years will most likely see the light of the day.
The public can also be assured that “e-hailing” drivers will be well educated, polite and well mannered as well.
They will be using electronic gadgets, hand phones and G.P.S. too.
E-hailing cars will also be fully air conditioned also.
And most important of all, the J.P.J. will be keeping a close eye on those “e-hailing” fleet.
A few extra facts about “e-hailing” before the subject ends.
JPJ has announced “e-hailing” vehicles should have:-
(i) Public Service Vehicle License.
(ii) Passengers Insurance.
(iii) An e-hailing sticker.
(iv) An e-hailing permit from the Land And Public Service Transport Agenty.
It is earnestly hoped this subject on “e-hailing” has been enlightening to readers.
