Grab Expands Carpooling Service to Malaysia, Philippines

Grab, a Singapore-based ride-hailing company, has expanded its carpooling service GrabShare to Malaysia and the Philippines, according to a report by Tech Wire Asia.

Launched in Singapore last year, GrabShare’s carpooling service is designed to transport riders who are taking similar routes. GrabShare’s rates are 30% cheaper compared to rates for Grab’s ride-hailing services, says the report.

“Grab is all about leveraging big data to develop tailored solutions for solving local transport challenges to outserve our customers,” Sean Goh, Grab Malaysia’s country head, told Tech Wire Asia. “GrabShare gets people to their destinations with a more pocket-friendly fare, while minimizing the need for more cars on our roads by tapping on our pool of commercial GrabCar economy drivers.”
