Customers can order GrabBajay straight from Grab app homepage. Also, customers can use GrabNow feature to order the service. It is by approaching available bajay and ordering it using the feature.
GrabBajay is now available only in Center of Jakarta. And at its launching, it has about 60 bajays waiting for customer orders in five point shelters. The point shelters are Jakarta City Station, ITC Mangga Dua, Mangga Besar Station, Sawah Besar Station and Pasar Baru.
