Hiring a driver/service for a daily commute

Post by JMV » Tue, 08 Sep 2020 5:09 pm


are there any services or other (affordable) ways to hire a car to come pick you up and drop off every day?

Asked Grab but only way is to book a few days in advance, and pay a $8 prebooking fee for each ride.

I've known people to employ their own driver, but they owned a car.

I used to see a lady picked up each day at the same time by a taxi. You could try regular taxis and see what arrangement you can get.

You can check with a taxi company if any taxi drivers are willing to do it. There are some taxis that fetch passengers on a daily basis. They may be more flexible on the booking fee.
