Private-hire car services are on the rise, and have been the cause of more cabbies giving up their taxis (Competition forcing more cabbies to give up their taxis; July 17).
But if there were no more cabbies, another job would be gone in Singapore.
Hence, we need to give this issue more attention.
I believe taxis are not much different from private-hire cars, and are equally capable of providing service to commuters.
