Indonesian ride-hailing giant Go-Jek has launched the beta
version of its app in Singapore today, under the brand GOJEK.

Available for both Android and iOS devices, the app is currently
being released on beta stage and will be rolled out gradually to
ensure balance between supply and demand.

“It is with great pride that we begin the roll-out of our
services in Singapore. Consumers throughout the country have told
us that they want more choice in this sector and with the launch of
our beta app, their wait is coming to an end,” GOJEK President
Andre Soelistyo said in a press statement.

“We are launching in beta for now, while we fine-tune our
service to make sure it meets the high standards expected by
Singaporeans. As such, we are asking all users, whether drivers or
passengers, to provide us with ongoing feedback as we work towards
creating the best possible service for the country,” he
added.

Earlier this month, GOJEK has announced a
partnership with DBS Bank to support its expansion to Singapore
and Southeast Asia in general.

October.

According to
The Straits Times, some 20,000 drivers have expressed interest
