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).
