Cheaper Rides with UberX by Uber!

UberX just announced that their prices will be cheaper from 18th January onwards in Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bharu and Penang!
This time round they are dropped their charges to 15% lower and making people easier to travel around the cities!

By dropping their charges, now we can travel around Penang with cheaper rates and definitely a lot cheaper compare to Taxi in Penang!
Below picture clearly shown that you can choose to travel with taxi  for RM50 from George Town to Penang International Airport, or you can choose to travel with UberX which was RM23 previously and now charging at only RM20.

Even in Johor Bharu, the fare from Senai Airport to JB City Centre will only cost you RM26!!! now
As for passengers in Kuala Lumpur, you will now enjoy as low as RM3 only if you were to travel from 1Utama to TTDI or RM4 if you travel from KL Sentral to MidValley Megamall.

Below are the charts of the fare breakdown for:

Kuala Lumpur

and lastly, Johor Bharu

Good news will good without a happy ending!
Now Uber has also brought some SURPRISES to the Uber Partners

When the prices of UberX have went down, there will be increase in demand for UberX drivers for sure. This has indicates that the waiting time for Uber users will be shorter when there are more Uber partners joining the community and they can accept more Uber users at the same time. 

In short, Uber Partners will increase in income as trip increases based on the new rate implementation as they don't have to waste time on lurking for the next person that request for Uber.

Based on the studies that done for the past years, it clearly shown that Uber Partners are making more money compared to previous years when the demand went up year by year as Uber is getting more and more trust from the public. 
At the same time, the Uber users' waiting time has went shorter year by year as there are more and more Uber Partners joined in when demand increases.

In conclusion, the idle time for Uber Partners will now be lesser as the demand increases and you will make more money when you are able to do more trips around the cities. You will spend more than half of your time on trips instead of doing nothing and waiting for the next request, how good is that?

Uber is a new trend to Malaysia market and it is slowly picking up the market. I believe the word "Uber" has became very common these days and commonly use by more smartphone users.
With Uber, you can hire your very own and personal drivers and even better when they have just cut down their prices. 

What's even better?!
