GrabTaxi, the largest Southeast Asian taxi-booking mobile app, launches its newest chauffeur service, the GrabCar. The new service, built as an additional feature of the existing mobile app, provides consumers on-demand private driver without the hassle of owning a car.
Aside from providing a new option to passengers, the new service also offers private car drivers the opportunity to build on their income by providing them with a much wider user-base and an efficient driver-to-passenger matching.
“œWhat has ensured GrabTaxi’s success in Philippines has been its ability to adapt and evolve to meet our user’s needs. That’s why we are introducing GrabCar; we see that there is an opportunity to fill a gap in the industry without taking away business from our core user-base of taxis. GrabCar will give our passengers that upmarket personalized experience while ensuring a fun and authentic ride.” said GrabTaxi Co-Founder, Anthony Tan.
“œGrabCar 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.”
