Grab (formerly known as MyTeksi), Southeast Asia’s leading ride hailing app is introducing the GrabCar’s services to 2 other major tourist hotspots – Malacca and Kota Kinabalu.

GrabCar’s launch in Malacca and Kota Kinabalu will not only be a likeable transport option for tourist and cost conscious passengers, but it will also be a viable source of income for those who want to be a GrabCar driver in these areas.



Both GrabCar and MyTeksi drivers are required to go through stringent background checks, have access to 24-7 customer service and PDRM button in the driver’s app in the event of emergency, passengers can share their ride with their friends and family so they can keep track of their whereabouts and also both drivers and passengers are covered by an insurance policy.

In addition to this, other distinct features significant to GrabCar are that it operates based on a fixed-fare and passengers can choose to pay either via cash or credit/debit card.
