As of today, Grab users travelling to the U.S. from Southeast Asia can book rides in over 200 U.S. cities. This is thanks to the integration of Lyft in the Grab app, which is part of our commitment to provide solutions that give customers a seamless experience, whether in cross-border travel, payments or new services.
“Grab has always put the freedom of choice, flexibility and convenience in the hands of our customers, including providing a seamless travel experience across borders, as we seek to outserve our customers,” said Tan Hooi Ling, Co-Founder of Grab.
The roaming integration, which is part of a broader global partnership, enables international travelers to access local on-demand rides, without worry of local currency, language, downloading a new app or setting up new payment accounts. Grab users travelling in the U.S. will be able to book Lyft and Lyft Plus rides through the Grab app. All rides are cashless and transacted via credit card or alternative payment options, allowing for a seamless ride experience.

When you’re in the U.S., your Grab app will automatically provide you with ride options from Lyft. To book a ride, follow these simple steps:
Choose a Lyft or Lyft Plus.
Tap in your pickup point & destination.
