Singapore should not be unnecessarily worried about high fares for taxi and private-hire car rides (Tackling high fares on ride-hailing apps, difficulty in booking rides, May 9). Let prices be determined via supply and demand.
There is already enough competition between taxi operators and ride-hailing services to let market forces determine the fares.
And high fares will attract more people to drive for a living. When there are more drivers, the fares will fall.
