Grab It On Google Maps

Mobile apps are now an integral part of helping us get to places. And for the more than 19 million commuters across Southeast Asia, the Grab app moves people quickly around cities be it taxis, cars or bikes. Wherever you go in the region — in 30 cities across 6 countries and counting — you’ll find Grab-powered vehicles, booking kiosks, event transport and airport pick-up stations to help you travel safely and with ease, supported by our 350,000 drivers.

Today we’re announced that we’re taking the ubiquity of Grab in Southeast Asia up a notch by integrating the Grab service into Google Maps.

How will this work?

After keying in a destination in Google Maps, the app will offer Grab as part of the public transport options in a dedicated tab for ride-hailing services showing estimated pickup times, journey times and fares for GrabTaxi, GrabCar and GrabBike. This gives you the ability to compare and decide between walking, talking public transportation or hailing a Grab.

Our multiple transport services provides people a wider choice of travel at different price points. In addition, GrabCar offers fixed fares so you’ll have the assurance of a guaranteed fare that will not change regardless of route or traffic.

New users can enjoy a free ride up to $10 off

Selecting one of the Grab ride options on Google Maps will take you directly to the Grab app with your journey information pre-filled, allowing you to simply book a ride with the tap of a button. If you don’t already have the Grab app, you’ll be first asked if you would like to install it from the App Store or Google Play Store.

Grab’s service on the Google Maps app will be rolling out in August and available on Android and iOS mobile devices in 24 cities across 6 Southeast Asian countries:

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.
