Grab continues to solve Malaysia’s transport challenges with its carpooling services, GrabHitch and GrabShare. Through these, Grab’s algorithms calculate and determine a match, factoring closest available drivers, travel time, overlap of trip routes, detour distance, and current traffic conditions before intuitively sequencing pick-ups and dropoffs. Carpooling allows vehicles to carry more passengers, reduces vehicle maintenance cost, and alleviates congestion and carbon emissions.
These services have created more job opportunities and provided access to faster, safer, and cheaper transport. Grab’s carpooling services shows the organization’s understanding of Malaysia’s unique transport and economic needs through corresponding technology solutions. Grab has also found ways to work with and complement the Malaysian government, to support its efforts and vision to develop a more sophisticated and extensive public transport infrastructure.
