Update: The Grab app services are back online

New update - Respecting the latest update from our Prime Minister announced this afternoon, Grab will be suspending the “self pick-up” option which was launched today.

While this may look surreal, the Movement Restriction will begin from 18 March until 31 March 2020 as an initiative to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.
