GrabCar to operate till 11pm daily during CMCO, allows up to 2 passengers each ride


As many of you already know, our government has announced the conditional movement control order (CMCO). Essentially, most businesses can now reopen but mass gatherings and educational institutions are still not allowed. Many companies have to change how they operate again, including GrabCar which has already updated its operational rules to align with the CMCO.

In the latest update announcement (via Grab app), GrabCar confirmed that it will operate from 6 am to 11 pm daily starting today (4 May 2020). Any late night bookings must be made by 10:30 pm or it will not be accepted. Another major change is that GrabCar will now allow each ride to take up to 2 passengers. This is on the condition that they are seated well apart to adhere to social distancing rules.

Besides that, passengers must wear masks and bring hand sanitiser when taking rides. GrabCar drivers will also have the right to refuse customers who exhibit symptoms of flu, while the same goes for passengers if they see a driver exhibiting symptoms. Additionally, all payments must be done with GrabPay to minimise contact between passengers and driver.

These changes make a lot of sense, but whether GrabCar will see an increase in customers again will depend on how the public reacts to the CMCO. With that said, what are your thoughts on the changes?
