Gojek Raise tariffs in Singapore
On-demand service provider startup, Gojek charges an additional fee of S $ 0.7, or around Rp. 7,165 on ride-hailing services in Singapore. The minimum tariff for GoCar in Indonesia is reportedly rising. The Indonesian Decacorn explained the additional costs for services in Singapore are in line with the presence of new features. This policy takes effect starting March 9.
“The value collected from (additional costs) will be directly used for initiatives designed to improve the experience of customers and driver-partners,” Gojek said, quoted by The Straits Times yesterday (2/3).
The features offered are multi-trips. The additional costs will also be used for driver-partner training. So, customers can have a more reliable, safe and enjoyable service. With these additional costs, the driver’s partner can enter two delivery points. This will increase income opportunities for drivers because multi-trip trips have higher fares.
