Bros Mao, a driver for the ride-hailing app, yesterday said Paramex Casino prevents the drivers from picking up passengers from within the casino compound, preventing them from earning money.

Mr Mao said the company argues drivers cannot pick up passengers inside the compound because it is private property.

“The company should be tolerant with rickshaw drivers because their customers inside book us through [PassApp],” he said.

Mr Moa said the company only allows rickshaw drivers to go inside if they pay monthly fees, but PassApp works differently because it is a ride-hailing mobile application.
