Grab Malaysia has launched Grab Intercity, giving users the ability to purchase bus and ferry tickets right on its app. The launch of the service also sees the inclusion of direct bus routes to Singapore.

While the launch is timely with the upcoming festivity, Minister of Transport Malaysia, Datuk Seri Ir. Dr. Wee Ka Siong noted that the incorporation of direct routes to and from Singapore would support the nation’s economic recovery by increasing channels for travelling.

He said: “As travelling continues to be a key focus for many countries, facilitating the ease of cross border travels is even more vital than ever in helping the recovery efforts of our economy. Moreover, as borders continue to relax further all around the world, we foresee a further increase in travelling activity, both domestically and internationally.

“This is why it is important for both private and public sectors to come together to play their part in contributing to economic growth in varied ways. With efforts such as this from Grab Malaysia, Malaysians and Singaporeans alike will not only have additional, convenient travelling options at their fingertips, but economies will be able to benefit too.”

“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,” saidsays Rashid Shukor, director of Country Operations and Mobility, Grab Malaysia.

“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.”

With the direct routes between Malaysia and Singapore, users will be able to purchase bus tickets to over 30 destinations in Singapore from 11 different states and cities across Malaysia.

Routes between Malaysia and Singapore on Grab Intercity will be available for booking and purchase beginning 7 July 2022. In conjunction with the launch, Grab is offering a 10% discount on all tickets booked through the service.

Grab collaborated with Splyt and Easybook to adapt the service onto the platform, enabling users to book a ticket, pay with GrabPay and earn GrabRewards through a few clicks. With over 15,000 available routes, the service expands Grab’s travel offerings which currently includes a host of other services such as to browse and book attractions, experiences, hotels and travel insurance.
