What is GrabHitch?
We are a social carpooling service that matches everyday drivers to passengers going along the same way.
- Anyone with a car and valid license (with at least 1 year’s driving experience) can sign up to be a Hitch Driver.
- There is no obligation to do rides on a regular basis because you are NOT a taxi or commercial car service!
- You choose who to pick up and when to do so, so every GrabHitch ride is entirely at your convenience.
You never know who you will meet on GrabHitch – Hitching a fellow NTU alumni member, colleague, a prospective client or maybe even a long-lost friend!
Why should you sign up as a GrabHitch driver?
- If you pick up and drop off one person to and from work everyday, you can potentially recover enough money to cover your petrol and parking fees.
- Contribute to Singapore’s car lite movement, help to ease traffic congestion and reduce your carbon footprint.
- Signing up only takes 5 minutes and you can do it straight from your mobile phone! Simply open the Grab App and follow the steps below. Get $20 credit in your driver wallet when you sign up and complete your first GrabHitch ride as a Hitch Driver with referral code HITCHNTUALUM!*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 how many 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.
