Grab Explains Why It’s Hard to Get a Ride

One of my biggest issues whenever I go to events or go out is the lack of Grab cars bringing me from one way to another. And I know for a fact that I’m not the only one experiencing this especially during peak hours.

However, it turns out Grab already laid out the reason why we are experiencing this with an infographic:

As per the infographic, even with the UberGrab integration, the amount of cars providing service for passengers are not able to meet the demand since there’s a number of Uber drivers didn’t transfer to Grab.

This is why the ride-hailing company came up with solutions to address the issue such as the 100 –Day Driver Transformation campaign, which eyes to improve its service in the country.

However, it’s not yet enough since

Driver numbers continue to drop as uncertainty in maintaining sustainable livelihood increases. With the recent suspension of P2 per minute fare, a lot of drivers and operators fear they won’t be able to provide for their families and car maintenance expenses,”

Grab Country Head Brian Cu mentioned,

We need more cars to serve the riding public. We appeal to the LTFRB to allow the displaced 6,000 Uber drivers who are not part of the master list to continue driving with their chosen TNC in order to support the demand. With an average of 12 rides a day, this is already an additional 72,000 rides, which can help ease the plight of the riders,”

Cu added.
