Following the move by Transport Minister Anthony Loke to allow the provision of motorcycle ride sharing services in Malaysia, Grab has now launched GrabBike (Beta). The pioneer programme has been approved for a trial period of six months beginning January 2020.

Currently open to service riders in the Klang Valley, applications are currently being accepted via Grab’s website. Conditions for GrabBike riders are a motorcycle not more than five years old from the date of registration, a valid motorcycle license and other conditions as imposed by the Ministry of Transport.

Riders accepted into the trial programme will be provided with a Grab jacket and pillion passenger’s helmet free of charge. Applications should be forwarded to Grab before 2 December and successful applicants will be notified by 9 December to report for orientation and training.
