Ms Tammy Tan, Ms Tammy Tan, ComfortDelGro's group chief branding and communications officer told Stomp that they have investigated the matter.

"The cabby, who is very new to taxi-driving, had accidentally driven onto the MBS pedestrian walkway as he was unfamiliar with the area after dropping a passenger off," she said.

"Realising he was unable to reverse out, he drove slowly looking for the exit to the road and finally sought help from a security guard who guided him back to the road.

"We are relieved that no one was injured in this incident and have given the cabby a warning."
