Grab users can choose between electric or electric or hybrid vehicles from Jul 14
Users can also choose to pay an additional $0.10 per ride to contribute to eco-friendly projects in Singapore.
Grab is allowing Singapore users to choose either an electric or hybrid vehicle from Jul 14 for their rides from central locations.
The rides, part of the new JustGrab Green feature, are priced the same as JustGrab rides.
Users will be able to select this option when booking a ride from Bukit Timah, Geylang, Straits View, Outram, Kallang, Orchard, Novena, Rochor, Bishan, Toa Payoh, Marine Parade, Bukit Merah, Queenstown, River Valley, Tanglin, Newton, Downtown Core, Singapore River, Museums, Marina South and Marina East.
More locations will be announced in the future, said Grab.
The vehicles will meet the Vehicular Emissions Scheme (VES) A2 emissions standard, such as the Hyundai Kona Electric or the Toyota Prius.
It is part of Grab’s 2030 Transport Sustainability Goal, which aims to have all Grab rides run on cleaner-energy vehicles by 2030.
Grab is also introducing the Green Programme from Jul 14. Users who opt into the Green Programme will be charged an additional $0.10 per Grab ride. The additional cost will go towards supporting sustainability initiatives, such as the Katingan Mentaya Project and solarisation efforts in collaboration with Sembcorp Industries.
Grab will also match the $0.10 paid by its users for up to three million rides.
