Grab has collaborated with government to improve public transport, traffic jams and road safety and offers “smart data” to governments to public transport at no costs.
Grab partnered World Bank to launch an Open Traffic initiative. It is traffic data platform provided to government for free through Grab’s exclusive partnership with the World Bank. Grab feeds real-time GPS data into the Open Traffic platform.
Through this partnership, Grab is able to do the following:
• Optimise traffic signals to ease traffic jams
• Improve public transit schedules and routes
• Identify and validate roadway infrastructure needs
• Optimise position and dispatch of emergency response teams
