Hitch with Class – Carpooling made simple

Do you think driving in Singapore is expensive? Vernon and Jean sure do – thanks to the power of sharing, Vernon’s been able to learn about a simple and effective way to help defray the cost of day-to-day driving: GrabHitch. It’s Grab’s way of giving the regular driver a way to recover his costs: GrabHitch drivers can leverage on Grab’s popular app and booking technology to offer rides to people living and working around them; in turn, riders help to contribute to the driver’s costs – it’s the perfect win-win.

Everyone knows that driving can be expensive – the price of the car is just one of many things to consider when purchasing a car. Did you know that on average, people drive 17500km a year, translated into petrol costs, that’s roughly $3500 a year on petrol alone!

What is GrabHitch?

We are a social carpooling service that matches, non-commercial drivers to passengers going the same way.

Why should you sign up as a GrabHitch driver?

  • If you pick up and drop off one person to and from your home and office everyday, you can potentially recover enough money to cover your petrol cost!
  • Contribute to Singapore’s car lite movement, help to ease traffic congestion and reduce your carbon footprint.

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.

The app will populate riders most suitable to your route. Alternatively, use the QuickHitch function to find nearby Hitchers without creating a route.

Step 3: Pick a suitable rider, accept the booking and remember to confirm with the rider via text!
