Just what are the unusual requests Uber and Grab driver get?

The unusual request came up during the meeting with between the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and TNC companies. The forum was held to iron out issues in the wake of discoveries that drugs and other contraband are now being transported via the TNC network.

According to the TNCs, customers have tried to get their services for unusual requests and one of these was to deliver a corpse from a hospital in Cainta to the Batangas port unaccompanied. The driver refused.

And according to the drivers, they get low ratings upon refusing such unusual requests.

Meanwhile, it was agreed in the said forum that Grab and Uber will no longer accept bookings for delivers. This means that Grab and Uber will no longer accept unaccompanied packages to avoid being used to transport contraband.

Likewise, Grab Express drivers will be required to open packages in front of the sender before accepting the booking.
