Effective today, ride sharing service GrabCar is available in four more cities – Ipoh, Kuantan, Seremban, and Kuching, with Seremban including the Nilai and Port Dickson districts. Last month, Grab released a variation of the ride sharing service, GrabShare, which is essentially a commercial carpooling service where riders share a GrabCar ride.
The new areas receiving GrabCar services also receive the same standards as before, where both passengers and drivers are covered by a group accident insurance policy of up to US$10,000, while drivers are subject to background checks as well as training and a code of conduct.
Also as before, riders have the option of cash or cashless payment, while fixed fare rides let GrabCar passengers find out the cost of the ride up front, without fear of price fluctuation even in traffic. Additional functions include GrabChat, an in-app chat feature allowing drivers and passengers to communicate for free within the app, while GrabRewards allow passengers to collect points for discounts and promotions.
