Singapore’s PHVs first appeared in 2013, offering public transportation users a digital alternative to traditional modes of transport at very competitive rates and a whole lot more convenience. It also opened up more job availabilities for Singaporeans to chauffeur passengers around town. PHVs grew in massive popularity and quickly outnumbered the traditional taxis prowling the roads in a very short-span of its inception.
Drivers could start their PHV career by renting a vehicle and registering interest with one of the PHV platform service providers. Drivers were heavily incentivised to complete job trips assigned by those platforms while earning the fares, similar to taxis. However, many PHV drivers were, and still are, struggling at the mercy of rising operational costs such as rental, petrol, assigned jobs levy and not forgetting the increasing number of PHV drivers causing the instability of their monthly income with no CPF contribution and career advancement.
In 2018, LTA enforced the need for a Private Hire Car Driver’s Vocational Licence (PDVL) for all PHV drivers. Drivers had to undergo a stringent selection process and attend an industry course at approved training centers approved by the Land Transport Authority (LTA). This was made to uplift the safety compliance as well as the service standards required of the public transport service providers.
Unicorn Limo was founded with two core objectives – to build a company that acts in the drivers’ best interests; and to provide stable job opportunities for people looking for a new career in the PHV industry. Since our entry into the industry, we have grown our fleet into a close-knit team of drivers across its various teams.
