As ride-hailing services resume, Grab continues to innovate as it launches GrabBayanihan Car – a specialized fleet temporarily dedicated to healthcare workers of Grab’s partner hospitals and clinics, starting June 8, 2020.

“Since the beginning of the fight against COVID-19, Grab has always been working on ways to support those who are working on the frontlines most especially our healthcare workers who have been central in this fight against the pandemic. Words can not express how thankful we are to our hospital partners, corporate partners, volunteer drivers, and our #OneGrab community who have made this innovation possible for our health care workers,” said Brian Cu, Grab Philippines President.

Piloting with 400 volunteer drivers, each GrabBayanihan Car will ferry one (1) healthcare worker to and from registered hospitals and medical facilities at a time, in accordance with the government’s social distancing guidelines. Following the curfew hours implemented by the government, the GrabBayanihan Car service will be available every day from 5:00 AM until 10:00 PM.

To reduce the risk of contamination, each GrabBayanihan Car will have a non-permeable acetate barrier to separate the driver from the passenger and will be required to undergo daily deep disinfection at the sanitation hubs. Likewise, vehicles part of the GrabBayanihan Car service will not receive bookings made from other GrabCar services and are required to keep the utmost level of hygiene and sanitation.

GrabBayanihan Car volunteer driver-partners have undergone hygiene and infection prevention training and will be provided with free face masks, disinfectant, monthly hospital assistance, monthly MedPadala allowance, one (1) prepaid HMO health card, life insurance, fully-subsidized vehicle disinfection, and unlimited consultation in Family Doc clinics.

GrabBayanihan volunteer driver-partners will each receive guaranteed earnings for a minimum of eight (8) hours of service rendered, as well as a reduced commission to allow them to earn more by serving our healthcare workers.

Interested health workers are encouraged to approach their hospital administrators to request the GrabBayanihan Car service for their entire hospital. Hospital administrators may fill up https://go.grab.com/grabbayanihan to indicate their interest to join the ride service. A Grab representative will be in touch with the hospital to help them set up the service.
