GrabTaxi Introduces New Hassle-Free Private Car Rides with GrabCar

The free GrabTaxi app, which incorporates the GrabCar function for smartphones and tablets, is available on Google Play (Android), App Store (iOS), Windows Phone, and the BlackBerry World app store.

GrabTaxi, the largest Southeast Asian taxi-booking mobile app, is launching GrabCar on the existing mobile app. GrabCar is a brand-new service that provides an authorized on-demand private driver for anyone, without the hassle of owning a private car.

This new service provides a new option for passengers and also expands the benefits of GrabTaxi to a new network of drivers. Like GrabTaxi, GrabCar offers private car drivers the opportunity to build on their income by providing them with a much wider userbase and an efficient driver-to-passenger matching.

GrabCar will complement the public taxi industry by providing an affordable alternative supply to meet this demand. GrabCar will provide passengers the option to select a private car if they require one and a higher chance to make a successful booking during peak hours.

Anthony Tan added,” GrabCar not only gives consumers more options, it will also be positive for taxi drivers in the GrabTaxi network. This will increase the volume of cars available to passengers and build consumer confidence and loyalty in GrabTaxi, eventually leading to more people using the GrabTaxi platform and more rides for taxi drivers.”

The introduction of GrabTaxi into the Philippines has helped repair an inefficient system and develop a safer environment for both passengers and drivers. As a core component of the mobile app, GrabCar holds closely to the pillars of GrabTaxi, which are safety, convenience, and speed.

To use GrabCar, users can select the GrabCar option, which appears on the GrabTaxi app. This will help narrow down the search to GrabCar vehicles for an affordable chauffeured trip.
