Grab-ing more places
GrabCar makes its way to Ipoh, Kuantan, Kuching and Seremban.
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.
