Missions Scheme

A Special Relief Fund has been set up for eligible driver-partners to supplement their income for the next 90 days, starting 2 March 2020. It is made up of (i) Government-funded Support and (ii) a Weekly Cover from Grab.

During this time, to counteract the decrease in demand for rides, the Missions scheme will be replaced with the Weekly Cover from Grab. It offers a broader base of driver-partners a more attainable target to hit during this time. Allowing for more income security with a fixed weekly payout. There will also be no change to Emerald Circle tiers (no upgrade or demotion), and we will review it again as the situation stabilises.

We’ve heard your concerns and are working to provide further support measures to you, while finding ways to improve the ride demand situation.

As we work towards this, we will continue to offer the Super Steady scheme until the end of May to driver-partners with a streak count of >=3 months as at end Feb 2020. From March to May 2020, the standard commission rebate criteria applies. No new driver-partners will be on-boarded during this period and no driver-partner will be reinstated into the Super Steady scheme should the streak be broken during these 3 months.

COVID-19 has dealt an unprecedented blow to the tourism industry, affecting the livelihoods of millions of workers. One of them was Komsan, an assistant chef in a luxury hotel based in the Srinakarin area.

As the number of tourists at the hotel plunged, he decided to sign up as a GrabFood delivery-partner to earn an alternative income. Soon after, the hotel ceased operations.

Komsan has viewed this change through an optimistic lens, calling it the perfect opportunity for him to embark on a fresh journey after his previous job. Aside from GrabFood deliveries, he now also picks up GrabExpress jobs. It can get tiring, having to shuttle between different locations, but Komsan finds it exciting. And mostly, he’s glad to get his income back on track.
