MANILA, PHILIPPINES, 13 October 2023 – Grab Philippines officially reintroduces its pet-friendly mobility service GrabPet. Providing pet parents better access to safe, reliable, and convenient transportation. Moreover, they can move about with their beloved furry, feathered, or even scaly companions.
As a specialized on-demand service, GrabPet facilitates pet transportation to places like veterinary clinics, groomers, and pet-friendly cafes. Initially, available in select Metro Manila areas, GrabPet-ready driver-partners are ready to transport dogs, cats, turtles, hamsters, rabbits, and fish.
To guarantee excellent transportation for GrabPet passengers, the service deliberately selected animal-loving driver-partners with spacious six-seater vehicles. Additionally, these driver-partners underwent comprehensive training in handling pet-related bookings. Moreover, all GrabPet rides include added insurance for the well-being of pets on board.
As a pet parent myself, I understand how challenging it can be for Filipinos to bring their animal companions to essential services and even leisure trips given the limited transportation options available. As an expression of our dedication to addressing the varying transportation needs of commuters, we have launched GrabPet. It is our firm belief that safe, reliable, and convenient mobility services should be accessible to everyone – even families with winged or four-legged friends,shares Grab Philippines Chief Operating Officer Ronald Roda.
Working Together for Above-Par, Pet-Friendly Rides
In a bid to safeguard both the safety and convenience of passengers as well as to preserve the pristine condition of the driver-partners vehicles, Grab Philippines has enforced a set of requirements for individuals utilizing the GrabPet service.
- Pets should be accompanied by human passengers.
- Pet owners should also refrain from booking rides for pets with parasites and/or fleas
- Pet owners can bring a maximum of two small and medium-sized pets or one large pet per ride, subject to the discretion of the GrabPet Driver-Partner.
- A maximum of four passengers can accompany the pet(s) during the ride. ● Pets are also required to be in diapers and inside carriers.
We are committed to ensuring that owners and their pets are safely and conveniently transported to their intended destination while also preserving the integrity of the vehicle of our driver-partners. A driver-partner’s vehicle is their means of livelihood, hence by collaborating with us in maintaining high hygiene and safety standards during the GrabPet ride, pet parents help in making sure that our driver-partners can go about their day worry- and hassle-free.Roda adds
