Pets with a need for speed will rejoice at the arrival of an on-demand transportation service.
Newly launched in Bangkok, GrabPet provides animal-friendly rides for you and your very good boys or grumpy cats at rates starting from THB95 (US$2.87).
The new service offers vehicles in two sizes: GrabPet’s normal-sized cars for small and medium animals and GrabPet XL’s SUVs for bigger beasts.
It comes to serve the capital’s growing pet market, according to Grab Thailand spokesperson Chantsuda Thananitayaudom.
“We have seen the rising trend of singles and childfree families in which they prefer to have pets as companions to ease loneliness,” Chantsuda said. “The work-from-home lifestyle caused by COVID-19 pandemic is also another factor that accelerates the continuous growth of the THB35-billion valued pet industry.”
The pet-friendly service is two years behind Singapore and the Philippines, which launched GrabPet in 2019.
Of course, car convenience has never been a problem for Bangkok’s inventive pet pals.
