What is GrabHitch?
We are a non-commercial social carpooling service that matches everyday drivers to commuters going along the same route. Car owners driving to their destinations can make their empty car seats available in exchange for a fee.
- Anyone with a car and valid driving license can sign up.. even if the car belongs to mum or dad!
- It takes LESS than 5 minutes – right from your personal mobile device. You do NOT require any additional provisional license or commercial insurance.
As a Hitch driver, there are 3 ways you can pick your rider:
1. Creating a Route (Advanced Bookings)
- Drivers create a route in advance (at least 10 minutes before leaving) and choose which rider to pick up from a list of pre-populated bookings
2. Quick Hitch:
- Drivers can pick from a list of riders under the QuickHitch tab (populated based on driver’s current location and current time)
3. GrabHitch On-the-Go!
GrabHitch’s newest feature on GrabHitch that allows you to pick up nearby riders in real-time, while you’re on the road!
- Switch on the On-the-Go toggle (on the top right hand side corner) AND leave it on.
- Once the toggle is switched on, rider notifications will be triggered AS AND WHEN there is a rider available.
- If a suitable rider booking comes up, click ‘YES’ to accept it and proceed to the location where the rider is already waiting to pick up the rider!
*Riders on this toggle did not initially book a GrabHitch ride.
Riders booked a JustGrab/GrabCar/GrabTaxi but were not allocated and hence was asked if they would like to Hitch instead.
Use On-the-Go when you can’t find suitable matches in advance. Or if you’re always on the go!
- Instant and Hassle-free Hitching
Tell us where you’re going and we’ll match you with real-time requests from riders located less than 10 minutes from where you currently are.
Once you’ve accepted a ride, simply proceed to the pick-up point immediately. No need for scheduling or extra coordinating!
- You’re still in control!
Accept or reject matches, it’s your call. But if you’ve accepted, don’t cancel on your poor rider who is right there waiting for you!
- Recover your petrol costs!
Recover up to $140 a week just by doing rides daily! Pick up 8 passengers throughout the week and pay for about one full tank of petrol.
