Grab today announced that its appointment as Official Transport Partner for Lippo Malls.
Jakarta, Indonesia – 25 August 2016 – Grab today announced that its appointment as Official Transport Partner for Lippo Malls. Shoppers can go to all Lippo Malls’ shopping centres in Greater Jakarta in comfort using Grab’s taxi, car or bike services, and be dropped off and picked up at official GrabStand, which will be located at the most convenient locations at the malls. Shoppers who may not have internet access and need help booking taxis, cars or bikes can use GrabVenue, a self-service booking terminal that is powered by BOLT!’s high-speed 4G internet connectivity.
“Our partnership with Grab represents Lippo Malls’ commitment to cater to the needs of Indonesian consumers who keep up to date with the rapid development of technology. We aim to enhance Lippo Malls consumers’ satisfaction by providing convenient access to Grab transport services at our malls,” said Marshall Martinus, Executive Director for Lippo Malls.
Ridzki Kramadibrata, Managing Director, Grab Indonesia added, “Shopping and hanging out at shopping centres is a relaxing activity for many Indonesians. Getting there and back should be just as relaxing. We’re proud to partner with Lippo Malls to make safe and reliable transport accessible to all, including those who may not have access to the Internet at that moment. Grab always aims to outserve our customers and with GrabVenue, shoppers can book Grab rides in air-conditioned comfort and head to the GrabStand only when their vehicle has arrived. No need to wait by the side of the road and try to stop a taxi, especially when it rains!”
GrabStand is a pre-determined physical location marker and waiting area for passengers and shoppers to be picked up by Grab services. GrabVenue is a self-service terminal, where shoppers can book rides with any Grab service. Shoppers need only enter their destination and head straight to the GrabStand to be picked up – no need to use their own smartphone or their personal mobile data, or contact drivers to coordinate the exact pickup point. GrabVenue can be used for multiple bookings, so multiple shoppers can use it for bookings at any one time.
Further complementing the affiliation, BOLT! 4G Ultra LTE with its advanced technology and 95% Fiber Optic connection will ensure a fast and stable connection for GrabVenue, making booking Grab services even easier and convenient on every Lippo Malls. In addition, BOLT! also provides 4G Ultra LTE connectivity on many of selected GrabCar vehicles, to offer a more convenient and comfortable ride experience for the customers while they surf the internet in high-speed during their trip.
“We are excited to be a part of the partnership ecosystem by facilitating rides booking for Grab users at Lippo Malls with our 4G Ultra LTE connectivity to ensure convenient transport and fast internet experience. We believe that the partnership will usher in a new stage of growth for the partnership ecosystem,” said Billy Abe, Chief Product Officer BOLT!

These will be available at 21 Lippo Malls’ affiliated shopping centres in Jakarta this week, and across all other affiliated shopping centres in Jabodetabek by Q32016.
