Thanks 2 U, we’ve achieved another milestone!
3.7 min read
GetGo has come a long way since we launched on 25 February 2021, when COVID was still on the top of everyone’s mind. In the midst of those uncertain and challenging times, we made it our mission to give Singaporeans an affordable alternative to car ownership through carsharing. Your response was overwhelmingly positive, with over 10,000 people signed up on our pre-launch waitlist. Two years later, we are now Singapore’s leading carsharing platform.
Together, we are making a real impact on the transportation industry and car ownership in Singapore — becoming an increasingly popular option for drivers looking for a more sustainable and cost-effective way to drive. Even ministers of parliament have recognised carsharing as an important part of Singapore Green Plan 2030.
Thanks 2 U, our GetGo users, we have been fortunate enough to grow our fleet to over 2,100 vehicles and expand across 1,400 locations islandwide, making it possible for even more people to enjoy the benefits of carsharing.
Your continued support has made it possible for us to reach another major milestone — getting funding to accelerate our company’s growth and improvement in 2023. From everyone at the GetGo team, thank you for being a part of our journey to give everyone in Singapore the freedom to drive.
Read on to see how we intend to empower more people with driving freedom.
How we plan to serve you better in 2023
Improving operations and customer experience
We will enhance our operations and customer experience by adopting new and improved technologies and growing our team across all areas. With the right technologies and people, we can meet the growing demand for carsharing in Singapore and ensure our app and customer experience are as smooth and supportive as possible.
Increasing our accessibility in a sustainable manner
We will improve our accessibility in a more sustainable manner by adding more vehicles to more neighbourhoods across Singapore, including new electric vehicles (EVs). We will do this by expanding our fleet with high-quality EVs and forming more strategic partnerships to grow our EV fleet even further. This will enable more users to experience the freedom to drive in a green vehicle, and marks a big step in reaching our goal of having a fully electric and hybrid fleet of 10,000 vehicles in support of Singapore Green Plan 2030.
It is our mission to empower our community with the freedom to drive, and we are extremely excited to have this opportunity to scale what we are building to reach an even wider audience.
Thank you all for being part of our journey, and for your continued feedback, support, and loyalty along the way.
