Jakarta, 28 January 2019 – Grab, the leading online-to-offline (O2O) mobile platform in Southeast Asia, today sent 60 GrabBike driver-partners to Umrah through #ImpianUmrahItuDekat program, which started in October 2018.

This program is still open until April 2019, looking for the best 200 driver-partners to receive the opportunity for a free Umrah.

This initiative is also our effort to pay attention to their welfare, not only materially but also spiritually. We thank them for their hard work and hope that this welfare program can improve the quality of services for our customers. For other GrabBike driver-partners, the opportunity is still open for you to realize the dream of worship in the Holy Land. Let’s prepare ourselves to go to the Holy Land and increase our spirit to continue to be sincere and honest when working for sustenance.”

The #ImpianUmrahItuDekat program was also welcomed by the DKI Jakarta Transportation Agency. Ahmad Yani, Transportation Ministry Public Transportation Director, expressed: “I really appreciate Grab’s step in improving the welfare of the driver-partners through the #ImpianUmrahItuDekat program. I hope this program can motivate driver-partners to improve their performance by prioritizing customer safety. Also, the #ImpianUmrahItuDekat program could be the right tool to improve relationships between Grab and driver partners so they can work together to provide the best service for customers.”

Grab continues to improve the welfare of the driver partners by providing various facilities such as:

  • Aaffordable credit program for home and vehicle ownership, so that driver-partners can start owning assets through collaboration with Bank BTN by giving driver-partners payment and home ownership opportunities with affordable installments and low interest rates.
  • Collaboration with Telkomsel, Samsung, and Erafone to provide special prices for Internet packages and smartphones for GrabBike driver-partners.
  • Collaboration with bank bjb for the integration of the installment program for motorcycle vehicle tax with “T-Samsat” vehicle registration documents, which is the first for online driver-partners in West Java.
  • GrabBike Lounge, which provides a comfortable, accessible, and affordable place to rest for GrabBike driver-partners to support them in their work. Now, GrabBike Lounge is available at Daan Mogot and Kebayoran Lama, Jakarta.
  • The Mitra Terbaik GrabBike program to appreciate the GrabBike driver-partners with the most active and best performances. Mitra Terbaik GrabBike drivers are entitled to pension funds, cash incentives, scholarships for their children, and facilities for easy payment of motorcycle purchases with low interest rates.
  • Improvement technology as an effort to protect driver-partners who work hard and honestly by improving anti-fraud technology to detect fake orders, as well as the Grab Lawan Opik program to capture fraudulent syndicates.

Deddy Haryanto, a GrabBike Driver Partner who won the first-period of #ImpianUmrahItuDekat program, said: “I have had the intention to go to Umrah for a long time. I am very grateful to have this opportunity able to realize my dream. I would like to thank Grab, with whom I have working over the past four years. Grab has provided me with an opportunity for driver partners like me to go Umrah. This program makes us more enthusiastic to work.”
