Grab is more than just the leading ride-hailing and mobile payments platform in Southeast Asia.

We use data and technology to improve everything from transportation to payments across a region of more than 620 million people. Working with governments, drivers, passengers, and the community, we aim to unlock the true potential of the region by solving problems that hinder progress.

Grab began as a taxi-hailing app in 2012, but has extended its product platform to include private car services (GrabCar & GrabShare), motorcycle taxis (GrabBike), social carpooling (GrabHitch), last mile delivery (GrabExpress & GrabFood), bus & shuttle services (GrabCoach & GrabShuttle) as well as a mobile payments services (GrabPay). We are focused on pioneering new commuting and payment alternatives for drivers and passengers with an emphasis on speed, safety, and reliability. Currently we offer services in Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Myanmar; however, we also have R&D offices in Singapore, Seattle, Beijing, Bangalore, Jakarta, & Vietnam.
