Grab to Offer Three Wheelers in Mandalay

Grab Myanmar has launched a beta trial of its three-wheel vehicle service named GrabThoneBane in Mandalay. Grab passengers can now book GrabThoneBane rides through the Grab mobile application. Grab is currently working with a group of GrabThoneBane drivers for the beta trial which started on May 14. The beta trial will scale up gradually to allow Grab to test and improve the GrabThoneBane service, based on driver and passenger feedback. Grab is already running similar threewheel vehicle ride hailing services in Philippines and Cambodia and in Mandalay, the GrabThoneBane service targets to serve daily commuters with loads, homemakers, small families, couples as well as local and foreign travellers. Passengers need not have to haggle on the fare and will get a GrabThoneBane taxi within minutes of the booking. To ensure Grab passengers get the best service, Grab driver-partners are rigorously screened and trained. Meanwhile, existing three-wheel vehicle drivers in Mandalay can now register to partner with Grab to get more passenger bookings. By signing up to be a GrabThoneBane driver-partner, threewheel vehicle drivers will have access to better income opportunities and a driver community support system as well as safety trainings and free accident insurance. Grab driver-partners will be issued Grab-branded T-shirts for them to wear for clear identification as well as safety vests for additional protection. “We are excited to start trialing GrabThoneBane in Mandalay. We are already receiving a lot of positive feedback from our passengers during this beta trial phase which reflects the huge potential we see for this service in the city. We would like to invite commuters in Mandalay to experience the convenience of three-wheel vehicle taxi bookings using the Grab app. We also invite three-wheel vehicle taxi drivers to partner with us. We believe GrabThoneBane will enable driverpartners earn up to three times more in income than regular three-wheel vehicle taxi drivers. In addition to higher income, GrabThoneBane driverpartners can also enjoy flexible working hours, insurance coverage and skills upgrading”, said Alvin Loh, Acting Country Head, Grab Myanmar.
