Singapore-based ride-hailing giant Grab has announced plans to launch two new services on May 25, in an attempt to meet different passenger needs and create more moneymaking opportunities for drivers.
One service is GrabPet XL, an improved version of the existing GrabPet service, which will use larger vehicles fitted with collapsible pet seat covers and adjustable straps to transport up to three passengers and three small and medium-sized pets in a single trip, Grab said in a statement on Wednesday.
The other is GrabCar Exec, which will use limousines including the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes Benz E-Class, according to the statement.
Interested users will be able to book the two services via the Grab app, with prices starting from $15 and $16 for GrabCar Exec and GrabPet XL respectively, the statement said.
Grab’s move comes more than a week after its domestic rival Ryde launched a similar ride-hailing service named RydeLUXE in Singapore designed to cater to executives and premium customers.
