Trip Planner for integrated public transport service
The feature will enable users to plan their transit journey with real-time public transportation information and end-to-end directions in the Grab app. It will be available for all Grab users in Singapore starting today.



The introduction of the new features followed the launch of GrabPlatform in July 2018, which enable partner companies to integrate their services into the Grab app.

The company had also announced plan to integrate its GrabFood service to its core app, as part of its bid to become a “super app.”
