Grab Intercity Launches In Malaysia With Direct Routes To Singapore

PETALING JAYA, 8 JULY 2022 - Grab Malaysia officially launches Grab Intercity, giving users the ability to conveniently purchase affordable bus and ferry tickets right on the Grab app.

The launch of the service also sees the inclusion of direct bus routes to Singapore, helping to minimise congestion on highways, ticket concessions, and even borders, especially during peak travel periods.

“As a homegrown brand, we want to help Malaysians plan their travels conveniently and affordably with the use of technology. It’s only through collaboration with industry leaders across different sectors that we’re able to simplify routine errands such as planning for a holiday, making it even more seamless and rewarding at the same time.

“Grab Intercity is no different. By growing our travel offerings, users can plan their holidays without the need for multiple apps or log-ins. We hope this enables a more convenient way for Malaysians to prepare for the upcoming Hari Raya Aidiladha too,” says Rashid Shukor, Director of Country Operations and Mobility, Grab Malaysia.

In addition to being timely with the upcoming festivity, Minister of Transport Malaysia, Datuk Seri Ir. Dr. Wee Ka Siong shares that by incorporating direct routes to and from Singapore, such efforts support the nation’s economic recovery by increasing channels for convenient travelling.
