grab bayanihan car program launched

In an effort to support healthcare workers who are tirelessly working and helping together flattening the curve, Grab is launching the GrabBayanihan Car which is a specialized fleet of volunteer drivers temporarily dedicated to healthcare workers of Grab's partner hospitals and clinics, beginning today, June 8.  

The GrabBayanihan Car program will have a total of 400 volunteer drivers. Each of these cars will ferry one healthcare worker to and from registered hospitals and medical facilities at a time, in compliance with the government's social distancing implementation. This will also follow the curfew hours imposed by the government, which means the GrabBayanihan Car service will be available between 5AM and 10PM, daily. 

"Since the beginning of the fight against COVID-19, Grab has always been working on ways to support those who are working on the frontlines most especially our healthcare workers who have been central in this fight against the pandemic. Words can not express how thankful we are to our hospital partners, corporate partners, volunteer drivers, and our #OneGrab community who have made this innovation possible for our health care workers," said Brian Cu, Grab Philippines President.

In addition to the one passenger at a time policy, GrabBayanihan Car driver will also observe other guidelines by the government inside the car such as having a non-permeable acetate barrier separating the driver from the passenger. Also the car is required to undergo daily deep disinfection at the sanitation hubs. Likewise, vehicles that are part of the GrabBayanihan Car program will not receive bookings made from other GrabCar services and are required to keep utmost level of hygiene and sanitation.

Not only that, all GrabBayanihan Car drivers have undergone training on hygiene and infection prevention and each of the is provided with free face masks, disinfectant, monthly hospital assistance, monthly MedPadala allowance, one prepaid HMO health card, life insurance, fully-subsidized vehicle disinfection, and unlimited consultation in Family Docs clinics.

Furthermore, these volunteer driver-partners will each receive guaranteed earnings for a minimum of 8 hours of service rendered, as well as a reduced commission to allow them to earn more by serving our healthcare workers. 

As for the healthcare frontliners who would like to take advantage of this service, they are encouraged to approach their hospital administrators to request the GrabBayanihan Car service for their entire hospital. Hospital administrators may fill up to indicate their interest to join the ride service. A Grab representative will be in touch with the hospital to help them set up the service.
