Grab spurs cashless payment adoption for public transportation through Cash-in With Driver Feature
Cash-in with Driver allows cash-paying commuters to enjoy safe and reliable GrabCar services by activating their GrabPay wallet during the ride, paying cash to their drivers at the end of the trip, and receive their change credited in their GrabPay wallets. Through the Cash-in with Driver feature, Grab is able to help ease and accelerate cashless payment adoption in the Philippines by having driver-partners guide cash-paying commuters on their GrabPay wallet activation.
28 October 2020, MANILA PHILIPPINES – As the country looks towards a safe and sustainable economic recovery, transportation remains a key factor for many Filipinos to perform their essential activities. With public transportation adopting cashless payments, many Filipinos require help to fully embrace this new way of paying cashless for their everyday commute – and Grab is introducing a solution to address just that.
Fully rolled-out by November 2020 through an updated version of the Grab app, Cash-in with Driver allows cash-paying commuters to enjoy safe and reliable GrabCar services by simply activating their GrabPay wallets during the ride, paying cash to their drivers, and receive their change credited to their GrabPay wallets.
With GrabCar drivers spurring the cashless movement through Cash-in with Driver, cash-paying commuters can easily transition towards cashless and unlock the many benefits that GrabPay has to offer – from GrabRewards points that can be used to save on Grab transactions, dedicated deals and promotions, as well as safe and seamless cashless payments across GrabPay’s wide array acceptance partners.
“With many of our kababayans required to physically be present in their workspaces and offices, transportation remains key in effectively driving safe and sustainable economic recovery for our communities and our country. Through this innovation, we hope to help ease the cashless barrier for our commuters by enjoining our driver-partners to not only provide a safe and reliable means of transportation, but to also help more Filipino commuters embrace cashless payment, and unlock the many benefits that await them with GrabPay”, says Ronald Roda, Grab Philippines Head of Transport and Shared Services.
Cash-in with Driver will be available on GrabCar 2-seater and 4-seater in Metro Manila, GrabBayanihan Car, GrabCar 2-Seater in Cebu and Pampanga, and soon on GrabTaxi.
