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.

How does it work?

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:

Grab x Lyft steps

STEP 1
Choose a Lyft or Lyft Plus.

STEP 2
Tap in your pickup point & destination.

STEP 3

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.
