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 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 and when to do so.
Did you know? An average Hitch Driver saves 58% on petrol, just by picking someone up along the way!
Why should you sign up as a GrabHitch driver?
- If you pick up and drop off one person to and 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.

Get $20 credit in your driver wallet when you sign up and complete your first GrabHitch ride with referral code JOINHITCH by 30 June 2018!* 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.
From 1 June 2018, we will collect a 10% platform fee on GrabHitch rides from our drivers which goes into covering our operating costs and investing in various initiatives and product enhancements to ultimately channel value back to you.
Still feeling unsure? Leave your details and we will give you a call to walk you through the sign up process!
