Go-Jek, the latest entrant into the ride-hailing market of Singapore, launched a portal today for drivers in the island country to pre-register so that they can use the platform.
Issuing a statement, the Indonesian based ride-hailing firm said, “Drivers who sign up will have the opportunity to be our first driver-partners in Singapore.”
“Over the coming weeks, interested drivers who provide their contact details will receive notifications from GOJEK with details and next steps on how to apply to join Go-Jek’s Singapore platform when the company launches,” it added.
Go-Jek further said that there has been a huge amount of driver interest in Singapore and it plans to build a strong and engaging relationship with the local driver community.
Go-Jek has evolved from a ride-hailing service to a one-stop app through which its customers can make online payments and order everything from food, groceries to massages. It was launched in 2011 in Jakarta.
The company is estimated to have a valuation of about USD5 billion (SGD6.9 billion) when Google, Singapore state investor Temasek Holdings and others came in as investors in its USD1.5 billion (SGD2.07 billion) funding earlier this year.
