Grab users traveled almost 1 billion kilometers in PH


Customers of ridesharing firm, Grab, traveled a total of more than 920 million kilometers in the Philippines and spent an average of P7,000 in fares for their trips in 2018.

“Our most engaged users — the top 5 percent — spent an average of P5,000 and did around eight times more trips than the average user,” Grab Philippines Country Head Brian Cu said in a statement over the weekend.

“The uptake in demand for Grab rides this year reflects the Filipinos’ strong need for convenient and safe transportation solutions,” he added.

Cu made the disclosure following Grab’s initiative to release to the public its report on the number of rides and their corresponding amounts for 2018.

He said users may log on to the website: to view their booking history and accumulated amount spent for their trips.

Cu vowed that Grab’s management will continue to implement initiatives to improve the quality of its services, as it lauded the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) for approving an additional 30,000 slots for transportation network vehicle services (TNVS) units in the latter part of the year.

“We continue to improve the quality of our services and further enhance app features and protocols as part of our 100-day plan, #SaferEveryday roadmap and #BetterEveryday campaign. In 2019, Grab will continue to double down on safety by reinforcing features, protocols and existing government partnerships to ensure safer trips every day,” Cu added.

The ridesharing firm has earlier urged the LTFRB to increase the common supply base for TNVS units to around 80,000 to meet the riding public’s growing demand.

The current supply base for TNVS units stands at 66,750 in Metro Manila, Metro Cebu, and Pampanga. (PNA)
