Grab just cannot stop making the headlines. They have just expanded their office space just earlier this week. They are also going to create 400 more high-value jobs for the region; which is a big deal for Malaysia actually. Just last night, they hit yet another milestone, it is like they cannot stop.
Just about six months ago we reported that Grab has hit their 2 billion rides mark. Yesterday at precisely 9:34:32 p.m. (+0800 GMT) Grab scores another billion rides. Yes, they have now completed more than 3 billion rides in South East Asia. With the 3 billion rides too they have completed a journey of more than 21 billion Kilometers; that is the distance of Earth to Moon, and back again times 27,400.
Who knew, hitting the 3 billion mark takes 61 simultaneous bookings across 21 cities in 6 countries. You read that right; at that precise moment, 61 bookings across South East Asia is being completed with the shortest ride in Philipines completing a mere 368m while the longest was in Jakarta at 26.5km. Three of the 61 rides are first time riders as well making it even sweeter.
