GrabShare pairs just two different passenger bookings with similar trip routes within a single trip. Hence, passengers will only experience a maximum of two stops before reaching their destinations.
- Passenger A selects GrabShare ride and is picked up by a GrabShare driver.
- Passenger B selects GrabShare ride, and Passenger A and B are matched. The Grab app notifies both the driver and Passenger A and B of a successful match.
- Driver makes a slight detour to pick up Passenger B. Both Passenger A and B car bring up to one more person to ride with them (only four passengers allowed in the car).
- The order of pick-up and drop-off ensures that both Passenger A and B get to their destinations quickly.
