Grab recognized that public modes of transportation are often not aimed to address the special needs of commuters traveling with their kids or pets. Hence, the company introduced two new options to its transport services.

“We are mindful of the ever-changing and sophisticated needs of our consumers, and we at Grab always strive to hear our customers out and outserve them by bringing new services that support their daily needs. GrabFamily and GrabPet are our response to the demand for child and pet transport,” Grab President Brian Cu explained.


In partnership with Combi, GrabFamily vehicle comes with a child restraint seat suited for a child aged from 1 year to 12 years old, working weight of 15 kilograms to 36 kilograms, and with a height of 4’9” below.

Its child car seats also comply with the strict international child safety regulations.

Initially available in Metro Manila, GrabFamily can seat five adult and one child. Each vehicle will also come with an emesis bag, baby wipes, rubbing alcohol, and tissue paper. Moreover, Grab made sure that all GrabFamily driver-partners are five-star Grab drivers trained to install the child restraint services.
