Indonesian start-up Gojek is to extend its ride-hailing service across the whole of Singapore following the success of a limited service area roll-out.
A report by The Straits Times says Gojek’s service has been available for riders travelling in the eastern and southern-central parts of the island since November.
The island-wide service is part of the Gojek’s continued beta phase in which users can join a waiting list to gain access to the company’s ride-hailing app.
Additionally, Gojek has introduced dynamic pricing, a strategy in which prices increase or decrease based on demand, to help reduce waiting times for commuters and drivers.
Gojek is not the only company broadening its mobility offering in Singapore. Last year, ComfortDelGro began trialling two electronic loniq taxis which it said can be recharged in 30 minutes.
