Improving the mobility of both people and parcel

 As an example, the company launched Bus Marketplace in July that has P2P operations for Glorietta 2-Nuvali and Glorietta 2-Southmall. The idea is allowing users to book tickets online so there is no need to line up in long queues. This coming September, it is expanding the service with a new P2P bus service from Olongapo to Clark, Makati to Noveleta, Cavite, and many more. 

GrabExpress service also aims to change for the better with its partnership with Ninjavan. Whose network covers 95 percent of the country's population. The integration will include a price calculator to assist customers to compute the delivery fee for a specific location. The new service is promising lower delivery costs, bulk pick-up with a maximum of 30 parcels and next day pick-up; to address the needs of Filipino SMEs, online sellers, and consumers.

Better lifestyle options

Grab PH acknowledges the Filipino needs for beauty, lifestyle and entertainment and the importance of accessing the services conveniently. It is introducing its new home hair salon in collaboration with Toni&Guy and L’oreal called GrabSalon. Customers will no longer face the heavy traffic for their haircut and hair color needs as stylists will give high-quality service at their own houses. They just need to choose the hair service they want to avail from the app then book the appointment at least two hours in advance.

For those who are stuck in long rides, every day may probably consider Grab’s collaboration with HOOQ as good news. Users will have the option to stream Hollywood or local movies directly from the Grab app.
