GrabShare in Yangon

Grab has launched GrabShare, the first on-demand carpooling service in Myanmar. GrabShare offers passengers a smart new way to commute in Yangon and will play a role in reducing traffic congestion in the city. By encouraging passengers to share their GrabTaxi rides, GrabShare will match multiple passengers heading in the same direction to the same driver, allowing trips to be completed simultaneously.

Passengers will also enjoy more affordable fares with a slightly longer trip time by sharing the ride with fellow passengers heading in the same direction and enjoy cheaper GrabTaxi fares by up to 20 percent. For driverpartners, GrabShare focuses on maximizing potential earnings by enabling drivers to complete more jobs for a similar amount of fuel and time spent on the road.

Alvin Loh, Acting Country Manager of Grab Myanmar said, “Carpooling is instrumental to improving Yangon’s transportation sector and achieving our most important goals: to help cities travel smarter, to make transportation more accessible for our passengers, and to improve the lives of our driver-partners. With GrabShare, we are making the everyday commute of people in Yangon even more costefficient, while providing drivers the opportunity to earn more income by completing two or more bookings in one trip.” GrabShare is currently available in four countries across Southeast Asia and Myanmar will be the latest addition, starting in its largest city Yangon.
