MANILA -- Ride-hailing operator Uber Technologies informed customers Sunday night that its app will shut down in the Philippines on Monday, as the U.S.-based company moves closer to completing its regional integration with Grab, the rival that acquired its Southeast Asian businesses last month.

Riders "have the option to download the Grab app and register in order to book rides" starting Monday, Uber said in an email before directing them to Grab's website for the "transition."
