GrabFamily

Travel safely with your little ones.

What is GrabFamily?

GrabFamily is an on-demand ride hailing service equipped with special seats for children aged 1–7 years old, below 1.35 metres in height.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore requires that children below the height of 1.35m must be secured with an appropriate restraint device while riding in private vehicles for hire.

There are two types of GrabFamily rides:

GrabFamily (Ages 1–3)

Cars equipped with the IMMI Go car seat

GrabFamily (Ages 4–7)

Cars equipped with the mifold Grab-and-Go Car Booster Seat

Why GrabFamily?

Required by Law

It is against the rules set by LTA for children below the height of 1.35m to use an adult seatbelt without a proper child restraint in a private hire vehicle.

Meets Legal Standards

Both the IMMI Go car seat and mifold Booster Car Seat meet all the requirements set by the Singapore Traffic Act.

Trained Drivers

What’s more, GrabFamily drivers are specially trained to install car seats securely and to help you strap your little one in safely.

How It Works

Here’s how to book a ride on GrabFamily:

FAQs

It is required by law that all passengers in private-hire cars below the height of 1.35m are to use an appropriate child restraint device (i.e. a baby/toddler car seat, or a booster seat) complemented with the use of a seat belt.

Children riding in taxis are not required by law to use child restraint devices. However, for the safety of all children riding on Grab, we encourage parents to bring along their own child restraint device, or book a GrabFamily ride. All GrabFamily drivers are equipped with a mifold booster seat for children between 1.00 – 1.35m (approx. 4 – 7 years old).

  • For GrabFamily Ages 1–3:

    Each car is only equipped with one (1) IMMI Go car seat. If you require more than one car seat, you will have to bring your own extra car seat(s) and let your driver know.

  • For GrabFamily Ages 4–7:

    Some cars may be equipped with two (2) mifold Car Booster Seats. If you have a second child who needs another mifold seat, an extra $2 surcharge applies.

Sadly, no. GrabFamily rides are only suitable for children aged 1–7 years. If you are travelling with a baby below 12 months old, you will need to bring your own car seat designed and approved for infants.

Alternatively, you may book a GrabTaxi. Please note that while it is legal for your child to ride in a standard taxi without a child restraint, the Singapore government strongly recommends the use of special car seats and harnesses for children below the height of 1.35m.

  • For GrabFamily Ages 1–3:

    This GrabFamily ride is based on JustGrab fares with an extra charge of just $5 for the IMMI Go car seat service.

  • For GrabFamily Ages 4–7:

    This GrabFamily ride is based on JustGrab fares with an extra $2 charge for every child secured in a mifold Booster Car Seat. The fare quoted on the Grab app already covers the use of one (1) mifold seat. If you have a second child who needs another mifold seat, an extra $2 surcharge applies. (Note that only a few GrabFamily rides will have a second booster seat. Please contact your driver to confirm availability.)

    Note that for the larger vehicle option, the fare is based on GrabCar 6-seater economy fares with an extra $2 charge for every child secured in a mifold Booster Car Seat.
