Any existing GrabCar driver would like to start to get the ball rolling ?

Hoping it will be something like https://forum.lowyat.net/topic/3852176 which was started by a Uber partner, ieian81

Isnt it supposed to be a good thing?

A lot of drivers means more people can share.

Or people are not as generous as we thought? biggrin.gif

1 thing I can seriously remind u guys is don't drive full time and thinking we are Grab partners. We are just tools to earn them money and they have a habit of banning drivers permanently from their system.

I'm a GrabHitch Driver for about 3 weeks and have only done 10 trips. Still quite a noob stat but here's my take:-

GrabHitch (to & fro work): Signing up as a GrabHitch driver is very easy because there is no need for motor insurance. Just IC & Driving License then you're all set. Register in the Grab app. As a driver, I would set my main routes which is (1) 7am: Home --> Work and (2) 5pm: Work --> Home. We can set it to repeat everyday. I set mine to repeat from Mon - Fri. After setting my route, I could then view all the GrabHitch passengers who are requesting similar routes to mine (the system somehow does this). Say my route is KLCC --> Old Klang Road. The passengers appearing on my list could be Pavilion --> Salak South, PWTC --> Sri Petaling, Reinassance Hotel --> Berjaya Times Square, well, you get the idea. I then have the authority to pick and choose whichever passenger I want and how many I want (up to 4 pax). I usually start choosing my passenger 1 hour before my departure time because that's when I have the most passengers to choose from. After selecting the passenger, I just call/text them to confirm the booking and done. Just pick up them up, drop them off, receive payment, then continue on home/work. GrabHitch for passengers is apparently 20 - 30% cheaper than GrabCar because the idea is that you are sort of sharing the cost with the GrabHitch driver since he/she is "on the way".

GrabHitch (to compliment GrabCar): I found this neat little trick when I get stuck in a dead spot (Shah Alam, Cheras, etc) as a GrabCar driver. I would turn on my GrabHitch and set my route back to a hot spot (say I set Shah Alam --> KLCC). I will find anyone going the same way then have him semi-pay my trip to KLCC. Hehe.

Negotiating pick up times is VERY common because more often than not, the passenger's timing is a little off. Say my departure time is 5:00pm and the passenger's pick up time is 4:40pm. I would have to select the passenger then call him/her up to ask if I could pick him up later. If they disagree, I would just cancel, no harm, no foul. It's funny because most times when I make these calls, the passenger actually sounds confused and a little angry because it's sort of like, you booked a taxi for 4:40pm but now the taxi is calling you up to ask if he could pick you up 20mins later. Haha. One must understand that GrabHitch is a little different from GrabCar or taxi services.

GrabHitch is still not great yet to be honest mainly because there's just not enough GrabHitch passengers (or people who know about this service). I work in a very hotspot (KLCC area) and my home is in a highly residential location (Old Klang Road - near Tmn Desa, OUG, Kuchai, Bkt Jalil). Even so, I only managed to get only 2 trips per week (2 out of 5 working days). Even the passengers I have selected are usually not in the vicinity. I need to veer off about 3 - 4km to get them. Hoping for more GrabHitch users as time goes by!
