What is GrabHitch?
Simply put, we are a social carpooling service that matches you to everyday drivers who are going along the same way as you.
Everyday drivers means our Hitch Drivers are NOT in this for profit-making. They are simply ordinary commuters who happen to be heading your way. By freeing up a space in their car to give you and/or fellow riders a lift, they get to cover a portion of their petrol cost. That’s all! So, let’s not treat them as taxi-drivers since they are not one. Take the front seat and make a new friend!
What’s in it for you?
- Affordable private-car commuting option, 20-40% cheaper than commercial services.
- Getting to meet people from all walks of life, you may even bump into your childhood friend or future boss!
- Contributing to Singapore’s car light movement, helping to ease traffic congestion and reduce carbon footprint.
Learn how to secure a Hitch ride!
Here are some super tips our Hitch Riders find most helpful in ensuring their bookings get matched:
1. Book in advance!
You may schedule your trips in advance at no extra charge! Book the night before or at least 2 hours in advance to ensure that your route has maximum visibility to all Hitch Drivers on the platform. The earlier you book, the more Hitch Drivers will be able to see your route, and so, the likelier we can find you a match!
2. Change your profile picture/display name
If you were a Hitch Driver, it’s quite unlikely that you would accept a booking from someone called “Angry Darklord”, “Boom Boom Pow” or “ABCDEFZ”, isn’t it? To increase your likelihood of being matched, ensure that your profile picture reflects your face so that the driver can easily recognise you at the pick up point. Also, do use your actual name as your display name.
3. Add ‘Notes to Driver’
Make use of the ‘Notes to Driver’ section. If your timing is flexible, you could also write a message in the ‘Notes to Driver’ section to let potential Hitch Drivers know, e.g. “I can leave X mins before/after stated pickup time”. You can even use this function to let them know if you have luggage with you or that you will bring them a cup of coffee should they pick your ride.
