Grab further expands services

MANILA, Philippines — Grab is further cementing its position as a “super app” as it looks to roll out new services in the remaining months of the year.

It is set to introduce a new set of transport, logistics and lifestyle services including Bus Marketplace, GrabExpress Nationwide Delivery, GrabSalon, GrabGifts, Videos and Hotels.

The latest additions are expected to bring wider reach and greater convenience to its users.

“Our aim as the leading super app is to solve everyday problems so that Filipinos can do more. We are doing this by breaking daily limitations such as limited transportation solutions, disconnected systems and services, and lack of financial inclusion,” Grab Philippines president Brian Cu said.

“We then collaborate with partners to create a suite of connected services within one super app and help unlock the benefits of the digital economy to Filipinos,” he said.

Through Grab’s Bus Marketplace launched last July, users are able to skip the queue and book tickets from its bus partners in advance.

The service initially offered point-to-point (P2P) operations by Tas Trans and San Agustin for Glorietta 2-Nuvali and Glorietta 2-Southmall routes with trips every 30 minutes.

This September, Grab is expanding the service with a new provincial P2P bus service from Olongapo to Clark, and Clark to Dagupan with a local bus services provider, and Makati to Noveleta, Cavite with San Agustin.

Grab is also ramping up its GrabExpress service to include nationwide delivery in partnership with Ninja Van, whose network covers 95 percent of the Philippine population with over 9,000 riders.
