SINGAPORE -- Singapore's largest land transport operator, ComfortDelGro, is helping its taxi drivers find work delivering meals and groceries as the COVID-19 pandemic crushed demand for taxi service.
The goal is to help cabbies supplement their income and maintain its fleet of cars. ComfortDelGro controls 60% of the roughly 18,000 taxis operating in Singapore. But it faces stiff competition from ride-hailing giant Grab, which is also based in the city-state. The pandemic is the latest challenge for ComfortDelGro, one that could force some drivers out of the business.
