Indonesia’s leading ride-hailing and services mobile app Go-Jek is on the verge of launching their services here in Singapore and could be as early as this October, according to a report from TechCrunch.
Backed by Google and Tencent, Go-Jek has racked up over 30 million downloads and has grown from a modest fleet of just 20 motorbike drivers to over 1 million drivers today, all without venturing out of Indonesia.
The company has since announced its expansion earlier in May this year, Singapore being one of the Asian countries on the radar besides Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines.
Currently, you can download the Go-Jek app but it only displays services that are only available in Indonesia, although it gives you an idea of what to expect when they finally launch in Singapore.
Some of the app-based on-demand services include motorbike and car-booking services, food delivery, courier, bill payments, home cleaning, vanity, auto repair and even massage services.
The official name for Singapore’s version of Go-Jek is not confirmed yet but in Vietnam, where it launched earlier this month, it is known as Go-Viet.
