SINGAPORE (Apr 14): ComfortDelGro’s 10,000-strong fleet of iconic blue and yellow taxis have been given a new lease of life following a plunge in ridership amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

Come end-April, some of these taxis will double up as grocery delivery vehicles for RedMart, the online grocery arm of Lazada, which has seen a surge in requests for home deliveries.

In a joint statement on Tuesday, both ComfortDelGro and RedMart say this collaboration will help expand RedMart’s existing delivery fleet as Singapore moves into an unprecedented period of physical distancing to stem the spread of the virus.
