Grab announced the launch of GrabCare, a service enabling healthcare professionals to travel to and from hospitals seamlessly.

Healthcare workers from the National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID) and Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) will be the first to test out the new feature. They will be able to book a ride back home via the GrabCare icon within the Grab app.

Grab aims to expand the service, including rides from homes to hospitals and enlarging to more participating hospitals.

GrabCare will be served by driver-partners who have volunteered to provide on-demand transport services for healthcare workers. Itis expected to increase their willingness to get a ride before and after their shifts. So far, about 2,000 Grab’s driver-partners have signed up to be part of the service.

The tireless work and unwavering dedication of our healthcare workers to treat and take care of patients have inspired us and many of our driver-partners to do more. GrabCare is our small contribution to rally the community together to support our fellow Singaporeans in times of need, and ensure healthcare workers get a stress-free and hassle-free ride daily. We are also very grateful for our driver-partners for stepping up in such times and extending their service to these professionals
