How does GrabHitch work for drivers?
Step 1: Once approved, open your Grab App and click on the upper left icon to view Tab. Tap the bottom banner to switch to “Hitch Driver” mode.
Step 2: Create a route based on where you are, and where you want to go at a specified time/date. Remember to indicate available seats you have, and whether you prefer a same gender rider.

Cashout payment will be through app to your specified account.
From 1 June 2018, we will collect a 10% platform fee on GrabHitch rides from our drivers which goes into covering our operating costs and investing in various initiatives and product enhancements to ultimately channel value back to you.
