Uber and GrabCar to be given new names?

KUALA LUMPUR, August 13 — The Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) could give ride hailing services a new name and impose new terms, its chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar reportedly said.

Local daily The Star reported today Syed Hamid as saying that the move aims to create an equal and fair platform for all parties involved in the taxi industry.

“In terms of policy, the government have discussed and decided on regulating the e-hailing taxi services. So, we will go into the details of its implementation next week,” Syed Hamid was quoted telling reporters in Johor Baru yesterday.

SPAD is expected to call for a press conference to announce more details on the regulation of Uber and GrabCar next week.

Syed Hamid, who is a former minister, said that the decision may see changes in rules and regulations or the implementation of new laws and “the delegation of power”.

Syed Hamid was also quoted as saying that the government was not legalising Uber, but merely “adopting” the US service under existing laws.

“What should be understood is that, we are not legalising Uber. The decision is actually to adopt the services under the country’s laws.

“I think there is a lot of things we need to address but whatever it is, everyone will be treated fairly and equally,” he said.

The government on Thursday gave SPAD the green light to regulate ride-sharing services after its CEO Mohd Azharuddin Mat Sah presented plans for a revamp to the taxi industry and legalising ride-sharing.

Mohd Azharuddin had reportedly presented 11 initiatives including a proposal to transform the taxi industry by improving the Teksi 1Malaysia (TEKS1M) model and the setting up of a special fund for new taxi vehicles, among others. – MMO.
