High demand: Passengers waiting for their rides at a shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur. With the number of e-hailing drivers significantly reduced, passengers are expected to face higher fares and longer waiting time.

PETALING JAYA: Higher fares and longer waiting time for e-hailing services are on the cards as the number of drivers dwindle by the July 12 deadline for them to obtain a Public Service Vehicle (PSV) licence.

E-hailing drivers associations foresee an increase in fares, with Malaysian E-hailing Drivers Association (MeHDA) predicting it to be up to 50% – depending on factors such as demand and supply as well as the timing of the rides.
