What is GrabHitch?
We are a social, non-commercial carpooling platform that matches everyday drivers to passengers going along the same way.
- Anyone with access to a car and valid license (with min 1 year experience) can sign up. You do not require any additional provisional license* or commercial insurance.
- There is no obligation to do rides on a regular basis, and you choose who to pick up, when and where to do so.
*Do note that based on LTA regulations, you need to have a PDVL to drive Hitch ONLY IF you own a PHV-registered car.
Why should you sign up?
- While waiting for PDVL or if you decide to switch to driving casually, you can potentially recover up to $600 a month just by tompang-ing someone along the way!
- Get $30 credit in your driver wallet when you complete your first GrabHitch ride with referral code HITCHGDC by 31 August*! Your application will be approved in 1-3 business days.
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!
Step 4: Accept payment once ride is over, either via cash or credit/ Grabpay.
Cashout payment will be through app to your specified account.
