A New Way to Maximise Your Drive!

We are introducing Back2Back Jobs to help you maximise your drive. The feature minimises waiting time between jobs to increase your earnings.

Back2Back Jobs is a new feature on the driver app that allows you to accept your next job as you complete your existing trip.

How does it work?

  • You will now see upcoming jobs as you approach the drop off point of your current passenger who is completing a trip.
  • Once you accept the job, proceed to pick up your next passenger after you drop off your current passenger.
  • Your next passenger will see from his/her passenger app that you are currently dropping off another passenger, along with your estimated arrival time.

More FAQs:

Q: How does Back2Back Jobs work?

A: Back2Back Jobs is a new feature within the Grab driver’s app, that can help you maximise your time on the road. It allows you to accept a new booking, when you are close to your current drop-off point.

Q: How do I become eligible for a Back2Back Job?

A: This feature will be automatically rolled out to all drivers over time. Just ensure that you update your app to the latest version. You will only be assigned a Back2Back job if you are close to the drop off point for your current GrabCar job, and the app makes sure that you are just 5-10 minutes away from the next passenger’s pick-up location.

If you are currently on a job and do not want to take another job once you drop off your passenger, just swipe the “Available for Jobs” button to the left. Please note however that by doing this, you will not receive ANY jobs until you swipe the “Available for Jobs” button back to the right. 

Q: Will I get Back2Back Jobs if I’m driving a GrabShare job?

A: No, Back2Back jobs is only for GrabCar. This feature makes sure that you avoid “endless pick-ups” for GrabShare.

COVID-19 has dealt an unprecedented blow to the tourism industry, affecting the livelihoods of millions of workers. One of them was Komsan, an assistant chef in a luxury hotel based in the Srinakarin area.

As the number of tourists at the hotel plunged, he decided to sign up as a GrabFood delivery-partner to earn an alternative income. Soon after, the hotel ceased operations.

Komsan has viewed this change through an optimistic lens, calling it the perfect opportunity for him to embark on a fresh journey after his previous job. Aside from GrabFood deliveries, he now also picks up GrabExpress jobs. It can get tiring, having to shuttle between different locations, but Komsan finds it exciting. And mostly, he’s glad to get his income back on track.
