RideCo and Grab to provide dynamic shuttle services
RideCo, a provider of microtransit technology, announced the successful deployment of its platform to enable Grab's services. Following the successful completion of a trial in Singapore, the two companies have entered into an expanded agreement for RideCo's platform to power Grab's dynamic shuttle bus and van businesses.
With this expanded partnership, RideCo will power several dynamic, on-demand services for Grab including short-distance trips within neighborhoods, long-distance trips between neighborhoods, and daily transportation for corporate clients' employees. Riders can book rides immediately or up to seven days in advance.
James Ong, head of GrabShuttle, said, "At Grab, we have created a transport platform that caters to all passengers regardless of age, income, or special needs. We are excited to expand our partnership with RideCo to provide greater speed and accessibility to our communities, while keeping cost extremely affordable. We believe that these dynamic shuttle bus and van services will complement the existing public transport network, allowing companies and individual consumers alike to benefit from shared transportation."
Prem Gururajan, CEO of RideCo, stated, "Grab is at the forefront of innovation in the dynamic shuttle space in South East Asia. We are thrilled to partner with them. Their agile and innovative Grab Shuttle team has been a pleasure to work with. We look forward to supporting their corporate and consumer clients with the ground-breaking potential of dynamic shuttle technology."
