Grab Viet Nam has begun a trial of bus-ticket booking service from HCM City to Ba Ria - Vung Tau Province.

Users in these two areas can book bus tickets for the inter-regional route from Tan Son Nhat Airport in HCM City to Vung Tau City.

There will be 24 bus routes per day operated by the Avigo Investment Holding Company.

Grab Viet Nam expects to have an additional route from District 1 to District 7 in HCM City, which will be operated by the City View Company and will have 44 bus routes per day.

Users can easily select the trip, preview details of the trip, and update the vehicle location at any time on the app.

In addition, users can pay via Moca e-wallet on the Grab app or via their credit or debit card, and then receive a QR code to scan when boarding.

According to a representative of Grab Viet Nam, the new service will help bus transport partners reach more users, improve operational efficiency, and promote business growth.

In addition, the Grab Bus service is expected to support the public transport system in the country and change people's habit of using private vehicles to public transport

In August, Grab Viet Nam signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Vietjet Air and Switf247, a technology start-up that provides aviation delivery services that provide express delivery from one city to another

Grab and Vietjet will focus on researching and developing digital platforms between the two sides to increase utility for users. They are expected to expand the service in the Southeast Asia market.

Jerry Lim, general director of Grab Viet Nam said that this partnership will expand GrabExpress' services

GrabExpress is one of the delivery services with the largest network in the country and a top choice for users in Viet Nam.

According to statistics, the number of GrabExpress orders in Vietnam market as of December 2018 has increased by 28 times compared to the same period in 2016.—VNS
