HWM (Malaysia) - - IGNATION -

In its quest for na­tion­wide dom­i­nance, ride-hail­ing and mul­ti­ser­vice plat­form Grab brought its GrabCar ser­vice to four ad­di­tional cities in Malaysia: Ipoh, Kuantan, Kuch­ing, and Serem­ban (in­clud­ing its neigh­bor­ing dis­tricts of Ni­lai and Port Dick­son).

In to­tal, GrabCar is avail­able in nine ma­jor cities na­tion­wide, in­clud­ing the Klang Val­ley, Jo­hor Bahru, Pe­nang, Kota Kinabalu, and Malacca.

“Since the in­tro­duc­tion of GrabCar in Klang Val­ley as a com­ple­men­tary ser­vice to taxis, the ser­vice has quickly risen to be one of the pre­ferred al­ter­na­tive mode of trans­porta­tion. In 2016 alone, we ex­panded to cities such as Pe­nang, Jo­hor Bahru, Malacca and Kota Kinabalu.” said Sean Goh, Coun­try Head of Grab Malaysia.

Things have cer­tainly been look­ing up for Grab over the past few months. In Fe­bru­ary, Grab col­lec­tively launched its on-de­mand com­mer­cial car­pool­ing ser­vice, GrabShare, in Malaysia and the Philip­pines, al­low­ing pas­sen­gers to en­joy rides that are up to 30-per­cent cheaper than a stan­dard GrabCar ride.
