Southeast Asian taxi booking app GrabTaxi is offering loyal GrabTaxi passengers some premium examples of the king of fruits this coming weekend in Singapore.
On 1 and 2 August, users can order* a box of freshly-packed Mao Shan Wang via the GrabTaxi app for S$10 and have it delivered by a special GrabCar durian fleet. Delivery is island-wide and orders can be made via the app from 2pm – 9pm.
The Mao Shan Wang is of Malaysian origin and each box will contain the flesh from a whole durian of at least 1.5kg. Each user is limited to one order of durians and are advised to make their orders early due to limited availability. Grabbers are encouraged to share their experience by uploading images of their order and hashtagging #GrabDurian #MaoShanWang #BaoJiak on social media.
According to the company, the GrabDurian initiative for passengers is a response to Grabbers (GrabTaxi customers) who voiced their support for the durian feast which GrabTaxi held for its drivers last month.
It is likely that the GrabCar durian fleet will be kept busy. Since the app was launched in 2012, tens of thousands of taxi drivers have been using smart phones equipped with GrabTaxi to accept booking taxis in Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore. The GrabTaxi app has been downloaded than 5.5 million times and has an average of 10 bookings in every second.
