Foodpanda released details of the e-scooter trade-in grant scheme from the government, becoming the second food delivery firm, following GrabFood, to release details of the grant for riders.

Terms for Foodpanda’s two-fold grant scheme include:

The first version covers riders who have completed 100 working hours delivering food from Oct 9 to Nov 7.

  • Riders must trade in their e-scooters.
  • Riders can claim their e-bicycles by Dec 31 (batch 1) and by Jan 2020 (batch 2).
  • Riders can claim their e-bicycles at Foodpanda’s North Rider Hub at Woodlands.

The second version covers riders who have completed less than 100 working hours.

  • Riders can choose to purchase their own replacement vehicle.
  • Riders can then claim a reimbursement of up to S$600 for bicycles and S$1,000 for e-bicycles.
  • Upon completing 100 orders by Dec 31, riders can receive half of the grant amount (either S$300 or S$500 depending on the device) then the next half upon completing 100 more orders by Jan 31, 2020.
