Car hailing company Grab is resuming its operations in the cities of Cebu and Talisay, which have been placed under general community quarantine (GCQ) starting August 1.

Raymond Dejan, Grab Philippines’ city manager for Visayas and Mindanao, said in a statement that the resumption of their services will “provide safe and reliable mobility solutions for its commuting public and help Cebu safely reopen its economy”.

Grab, he said, is implementing strict safety protocols by amplifying its GrabProtect measures to put the passengers at ease when booking their rides as the transportation sector transitions to the new normal.

Dejan said the firm’s safety and hygiene program will be thoroughly implemented across all its services to ensure riders’ safety.

During the first two weeks of GCQ, rides paid through GrabPay will receive a 50 percent fare reduction not only to encourage passengers to go cashless and limit person-to-person contact, but also to help the Cebuanos — particularly essential service workers, small business owners and the general commuting public — in their daily activities.

Likewise, Grab will also be waiving its commission to its Cebu-based driver-partners for the first two weeks of GCQ in the city.

“While public health restrictions ease, let us not lose sight of our commitment to safety — not just for ourselves, but for our communities as well. Many of us have been impacted by the pandemic, but we hope that with our GrabProtect program, as well as our other initiatives for our riding public as well as our driver-partners here in Cebu, we will continue to safely reopen our economy,” Dejan said.
