As seen in the app, Grab is currently having a test run of the Grab-Bike service for its select users.

As a quick background, Grab-Bike shares the same feature as Angkas, JoyRide, and MoveIt. And as the government wants to have different players in the motorcycle taxi industry, Grab announced that they are "seriously considering to reinvest in the motorcycle taxi denomination and relaunch its GrabBike service in the Philippines, with the blessing of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board and the Department of Transportation."

However, DOTr revealed that Grab could not join the ongoing pilot run of the government, as the company submitted its application late.
