At the start of September, Grab Philippines announced that GrabCar and GrabTaxi rides were once again available until midnight. Well, now that restrictions on public transportation have eased up even further, the company has just announced that its ride-hailing services will now be back to its 24-hour operations in certain parts of the country.
Effective October 20, 2020, at 12mn, GrabCar and GrabTaxi services will be operational at all hours of the day in Metro Manila, Pampanga, and Cebu. Meanwhile, GrabTaxi services in Baguio, Naga, Bacolod, Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro, and Davao will also be back up and running 24/7. For a detailed look, you can check out the list below.
Grab PH resumption of 24/7 operations

- GrabCar (two-seater)
Baguio, Naga, Bacolod, Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro, and Davao
In addition to all these, Grab Philippines has also announced that GrabRent—the company’s dedicated shuttle service—is now also back to operating 24 hours a day in Metro Manila. This applies to both the three- and five-seater services. Also, it is worth mentioning that Grab Philippines has already resumed the 24/7 operations of GrabFood in the capital last month.
Now, we understand being out and about during the wee hours of the night isn’t really something we should be doing these days, but we reckon a lot of people—specifically frontline healthcare workers—will still benefit from Grab’s extended operating hours.
