Grab has hit its 3 billionth ride. Regardless if you’re a driver-partner and passenger, this is a significant milestone.

The company has come a long way since its first ride in 2012. It has since journeyed more than 21,065,336,859km, equivalent to going to the moon and back 27,400 times.

Grab hit 1 billion rides in October 2017, then doubling that just nine months later. Then just six months on, at precisely 21L34:32 (MYT) on Sunday, 20 January 2019, the company achieved 3 billion rides.

When it crossed the 3 billionth mark, Grab said there were 61 trips starting at the exact same time, taking place across 21 cities in 6 countries. The shortest was just 368m away, while the longest ride spanned 26.5km in Jakarta.

In Malaysia, the day with the most rides (between 7 June 2018 until 20 January 2019) was 31 December.

Here’s another fun fact: 21 babies were born on Grab rides!
