Update September 09, 2016: Grab is accepting applicants on their website and Grab Activation Center processes it in one day. More details here: http://www.swirlingovercoffee.com/drive-with-grab-and-get-processed-in-one-day/
Private vehicle owners take note: if you’re in the office or elsewhere while your car “does nothing” at home or in the garage, you might as well earn from it.
GrabCar is now accepting applicants for GrabPeers, an LTFRB-accredited initiative to similar to getting a legal taxi franchise except that processing is faster, incentives are offered, there are rush hour rates, and the GrabPeer gets 80% of the total fare. Training sessions are provided and all this is legal.
Why Be a GrabPeer?
With the GrabPeer2Peer model, you have full control of how much you earn, and when. You can get more out of your car while you’re at work – having a 9 to 5 job means that that car is not getting used for nearly your whole shift. If anyone in your family or pool of friends have cars that are not hitting the road that often, they might as well earn from it by signing up as a GrabPeer. As a GrabPeer, you get to be part of a huge community of GrabPeers and Grabbers.
How to be a GrabPeer
Get Registered. Go to GrabCar.com, click “Be a GrabPeer”, and download the forms and list of requirement. Send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “GRABPEER APPLICATION”.
