Grab provides free e-scooter service to frontliners
MANILA, Philippines – Grab Philippines activated its electric scooter service GrabWheels, free of charge, for frontliners.
In a statement on Monday, March 30, Grab Philippines said it has provided 50 e-scooters to the following city governments for the rollout:
- Quezon City
- San Juan
"The e-scooters will improve short-distance commutes for health care workers, frontliners, and barangay officials in these cities," Grab said.
The ride-hailing giant added that it has 300 more e-scooters ready for deployment to other local government units, depending on the need of health workers.
Qualified users will have to coordinate with the local government units on how to borrow the e-scooters.
Grab said users will have to accomplish waivers upon borrowing. The firm also encouraged them to wear a helmet while riding the e-scooter.
