We’re delighted that you’re joining our community of GrabHitch drivers.
The very first step to get matched with a GrabHitch passenger is to key in your routes! (Routes contain your start time, and start and end location)
When you create your route, you can schedule it to repeat on multiple days. For example, you can select your daily drive to work to repeat every Monday to Friday. We will search for a passenger for you every morning as long as the route is valid. You can use this to create one-off routes too – just set the time and day of week and delete the route after your trip is done.

Click on the Navigation Arrow on the top right to start navigation to your passenger. This will direct you to your passenger’s destination as well.

HOW DO I CANCEL A HITCH?

At the driver screen, click on the Rides section. Your upcoming rides are denoted with a blue tab.
Click on the ride and then swipe upwards to see more details about the passenger. You can cancel the ride on this screen.
As GrabHitch is a social platform, do call or message your passenger to let them know that you are unable to give them a hitch. Do the same as you would do for a friend. Who knows, you might hitch the same person again in the coming weeks.

For payment options by GrabPay, every ride you do will be credited into your driver e-wallet. You can see your balance directly on the driver screen.
To access the details, you can click on the “BALANCE” section on the top row of your driver screen. You will see your earnings from each trip.
In order to cash out the money, all you have to do is to click on the cash out button. The first time you cash out, you will be asked to key in your bank account number.
If your wallet balance is at least $50, you may cash out in the app and receive the amount in your bank account the next working day.
