Wheelchairs, while essential to those who are inconvenienced when it comes to physical movements, can be cumbersome when taking a private-hire vehicle or public transport. This is especially so when the drivers are not trained in handling mobility devices. Leave your worries at bay the next time you travel with these wheelchair-friendly services:
GrabAssist ensures a hassle-free transfer with vehicles that are appropriately equipped and outfitted to tailor to your needs. Vehicles are also operated by drivers who have received in-person training to ensure their riders are comfortable from the start to end of the journey.
