SINGAPORE (Nov 5): After months of anticipation, Indonesian ride-hailing platform GO-JEK has launched a pre-registration portal for people interested in becoming its driver-partners. Over the coming weeks, interested drivers who provide their contact details will receive notifications from GO-JEK with information on how to apply to join its Singapore platform when the company launches its services here.

GO-JEK had signalled its intention to come to Singapore in May, not long after Uber announced it was selling to Grab and exiting Southeast Asia. At the time, GO-JEK said it was working on expanding into the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand and Singapore.

According to GO-JEK, there has been a “huge amount” of driver interest here. “At GO-JEK, we understand that driver-partners are crucial to successful operations, which is why we’re looking forward to building strong, engaging relationships with the driver community,” a spokesperson says in an Oct 29 statement.
