Grab unveiled the company’s first on-demand commercial carpooling service the GrabShare at The Brewery at the Palace, Bonifacio Global City. Now available in the Philippines and Malaysia, GrabShare combines a maximum of two passenger bookings with similar routes into a single ride. Passengers experience only one additional stop before reaching their respective destinations. This ensures everyone reaches their locations fast for less. Drivers will wait up to five minutes for each passenger during pick-ups.
With the GrabShare passengers can get cheaper fares up to 30%, which is fixed and displayed upfront. Passenger demand for rides can be met more efficiently with the existing car supply, helping reduce the number of cars on the road. Get instant booking anytime and enjoy socializing with fellow commuters. And ride with a peace of mind knowing that driver and passenger are both insured by Grab.
While drivers of GrabShare can help them get higher earnings doubling their bookngs they serve on a single trip. GrabShare aids the drivers to have cost-efficient trips maximizing the utiliy of their vehicle, fuel and time.
