What is GrabHitch?
We are a non-commercial social carpooling service that matches everyday drivers to riders going along a similar route.
- Anyone with min 1 year driving experience + access to a car can sign up!
- It takes LESS than 5 minutes to sign-up right from your phone, via the Grab app. You do NOT require any additional provisional license or commercial insurance.
- Choose WHO and WHEN to Hitch someone, it is entirely up to your own convenience. There is no obligation to do rides on a regular basis because you’re NOT a taxi driver or commercial car service.
- Share the cost of travelling and recover some petrol costs – Recover an average of $400 a month just by doing rides daily!
Exclusively for Shell Escape Members!

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.
