A Special Relief Fund has been set up for eligible driver-partners to supplement their income for the next 90 days, starting 2 March 2020. It is made up of (i) Government-funded Support and (ii) a Weekly Cover from Grab.
During this time, to counteract the decrease in demand for rides, the Missions scheme will be replaced with the Weekly Cover from Grab. It offers a broader base of driver-partners a more attainable target to hit during this time. Allowing for more income security with a fixed weekly payout. There will also be no change to Emerald Circle tiers (no upgrade or demotion), and we will review it again as the situation stabilises.
We’ve heard your concerns and are working to provide further support measures to you, while finding ways to improve the ride demand situation.
As we work towards this, we will continue to offer the Super Steady scheme until the end of May to driver-partners with a streak count of >=3 months as at end Feb 2020. From March to May 2020, the standard commission rebate criteria applies. No new driver-partners will be on-boarded during this period and no driver-partner will be reinstated into the Super Steady scheme should the streak be broken during these 3 months.
