The company plans to ease the difficulties healthcare workers face due to coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak
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.
