Grab is introducing a ‘revolutionary’ new feature to the Grab Driver App. The feature is called the Automatic ERP Calculator, which automatically calculates the amount of toll incurred during a trip and is added to the final fare.

How Does Automatic ERP Calculator Work

At the end of the trip, click on the drop-off button. Instead of manually keying in the ERP incurred during the trip, the ERP amount ‘SHOULD’ automatically appear. We have used the word “SHOULD” as the feature is still in Beta Testing phase and may not be 100% accurate in recording all ERPs.

What if the ERP Amount is Missing/Wrong

Always check that the ERP is correct before you end the trip. Drivers are allowed to manually amend the ERP portion if the amount is wrong.

After confirming all the ERP charges are accurate, the driver will just have to complete the trip by clicking on Send.
