PETALING JAYA: Grab has started to offer its bike-hailing service on its mobile application, although it is now only available around Kuala Lumpur city centre.
According to the application, the areas covered for the service are KLCC, Bukit Bintang, Pudu and Chow Kit.
The base fare is RM3.70 with an additional RM0.55 for each kilometre between 3-5.5km and an additional RM1 over 5.5km. There is also a service fee of RM0.30.
Motorcycle hailing company Dego Ride had gone live on New Year's Day with over 700 approved riders, covering areas from Putrajaya to Shah Alam.
On Nov 1, the government announced that it would allow bike-hailing services as a means to improve on the last mile connectivity for public transportation system.
The companies will be allowed to offer rides under a six-month Proof of Concept (POC) pilot project to assess the system, while awaiting laws to be passed to regulate bike-hailing.
