Early Morning (0000-0659)

Demand is expected to be much higher than usual. Similar to Saturday, demand will be high in the party & clubbing areas, such as CBD, Clarke Quay & Sentosa.

Please take note that there will also be road closures in the vicinity of the Sports Hub from noon to 11pm:

Early Evening (1630-1859)

After the Fireworks (2000-2259)

Due to road closures, Grab will advise passengers within the cordoned areas to book their trip from Kallang and Mountbatten MRT stations. Other busy areas are Tanjong Rhu, Republic Ave, Beach Rd and Kallang River.

From 2000-2259, your average fare guarantees are also focused on these busy areas.

FAQ & Incentive Qualifying Criteria 

1. IMPORTANT: How are total fares determined?
To qualify for the average fare guarantees, you must collect the required total fares for that time block and area. For example, from 2000-2259, if you collect $70 fares for trips starting within the busy area in red and $20 of fares starting outside of the red area, you will receive $20 average fare guarantees for trips starting from the red area, but no guarantees for trips outside of the red area (as you did not collect at least $30).Please also note total fare refers to fixed price displayed on job card when the trip is assigned. This excludes surcharges for additional stops, waiting time and tolls, etc. If there are repeated passengers, only the trip that occurs first will be considered.
2. Are there qualifying criteria? Do I need to maintain a minimum acceptance rate / cancel rate?
Yes. The qualifying criteria are:

  • Acceptance rate (AR): at least 85%
  • Cancel rate (CR): below 10%
  • Driver rating (DR): At least 4.2
  • Your Car: Own car or non-LCR rented car

There is no Trip-Per-Hour or online time requirement.  Your incentives are calculated based on trips & fares earned.  AR & CR are based on total trips for the week (Monday to Sunday). DR is based on your driver rating on Sunday 2359.

3. How do I maximise this incentive?
Drive as much as possible within the areas where the highest guarantees are offered! Trips just need to start within the zone to qualify – it doesn’t matter where they take you. Once you finish the trip, consider returning to the high guarantee areas to pick up more passengers!
