After the success of GrabTaxi in 5 Asian countries (Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore and Vietnam) business partners Anthony Tan and Hooi Ling Tan, came up with the idea of consumers having an affordable private cars, a luxurious and hassle-free rides. GrabCar provides chauffeur service and the same safety standard and convenience that GrabTaxi offers.
GrabCar launched to media on May 21 at the VYne… Board of directors, Brian Cu, and Natasha Bautista explains how GrabCar works same as GrabTaxi which allows consumer to select a private car they require. To use GrabCar, open your GrabTaxi app and ensure that GPS is on. If you are using GrabTaxi for the first time, you need to do the one-time activation process. 2nd, search for the drop off location and this will display the “fixed fare” and distance and you can give a tip to the driver though or provide additional info to help him locate you easier. After a minute, you will know if a GrabCar has been assigned to you and the app will display the driver’s name, picture and plate number and ETA to your location. 3rd, you can track your driver’s movement; you can also call your driver anytime for details. Last but not the least, you can always share your ride by sharing to your family and friends so they can track your taxi ride in real-time. So why wait? Download the free app that functions in smartphones and tablets and available from Google Play (Android), App store (iOS), Windows Phone and the Blackberry World App store.
As a call center agent, commuting late at night is very dangerous. Way back 2008, i was held up while I am on my way to work. And you know what, Manong driver is the hold-upper himself. He took all my belongings. cellphone, wallet, jewelries and even my ATM. Along with his—who asked my PIN. They withdrew my salary leaving nothing! They dropped me off somewhere along Kalayaan Avenue. Good thing, a barangay patrol saw me crying along the road. This is a very traumatic experience for me which makes me not to ride taxis alone anymore.
Last August 2013, GrabTaxi was launched in Manila. Me and my hubby tried this and it works fine for me. With the trustworthy drivers, you can even take a nap while on your way home. They even have — change while some local taxis don’t. —- GrabTaxi has 24/7 customer hotline…
