GRAB PHILIPPINES announced on Tuesday a program in support of the governments’ coronavirus vaccination drive wherein it will offer transport to jab sites with vaccinated GrabCar drivers.
The GrabCar Bayanihan aims to “provide safe mobility solutions for residents going to and from vaccination centers in Metro Manila,” Grab Philippines Country Head Grace Vera Cruz said at the Leading in Extraordinary Times 2021 online forum organized by the Makati Business Club.
In an e-mailed statement, Grab Philippines said the GrabCar Bayanihan was “initially beta-tested in Quezon City,” and it will pilot with “over a thousand vaccinated driver-partners.”
It will initially be available in Manila, Las Pinas, Taguig, Pasig, Makati, Quezon City, Pateros, and Marikina.
The company said it is also working with other local government units to extend GrabCar Bayanihan service to their residents.
GrabCar Bayanihan will provide livelihood opportunities for driver-partners within their respective cities of residence, the company noted.
“As we all work towards a safe and gradual recovery for our communities, Grab will continue to leverage its platform and technology to ensure that our kababayans (countrymen) have the means to get inoculated,” she added. — Arjay L. Balinbin
