Text message to renters says former Uber fleet partner now in exclusive deal with Grab

Ride-hailing app Grab has contacted drivers who rent cars from Lion City Rentals (LCR), urging them to switch over from Uber, whose South-east Asian business it acquired last week.

LCR, which has a 13,000-strong fleet, had an exclusive deal with Uber.
