    "The deal would mean the end of a costly effort by Uber to compete with Grab and an Indonesian-based motorcycle ride-hailing company, Go-Jek."

    So does this deal include Go Jek? I thought Grab and Go Jek were separate companies. Maybe this is just bad writing.

      Yeah it's hard to tell. I think he just means Uber was investing a ton of money between the two. Probably they'll strike a deal with gojek soon as well would be my guess.

    Wow, I had no idea that Grab was big enough to handle this. Go Grab.
