“Grab’s mission has always been to drive the transport industry of Southeast Asia forward. While we already have a diverse set of services in our app, it’s about time we take a look at jeeps – one of the most traditional forms of transportation in the Philippines. We want to empower commuters with the same freedom we provide our passengers,” said Khriz Lim, Grab Philippines’ Country Marketing Head.
