Car-sharing platform GetGo and SBS Transit have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) where both companies will jointly promote car-sharing for better first and last mile connectivity to or from SBS Transit’s islandwide rail and bus network.

The partnership also aims to create a flexible, inclusive, and sustainable mobility ecosystem in Singapore that promotes a seamless mobility solution without the need for personal vehicle ownership, according to a statement by the company.

As part of the partnership, both companies will tie up with external partners and merchants to offer marketing promotions through GetGo’s ‘GetDeals’ loyalty programme. Partners that have previously participated in the GetDeals programme include Sentosa, Singapore Discovery Centre, and The Punggol Settlement.

“We are excited to announce GetGo’s partnership with SBS Transit, as it marks a pivotal step towards realising Singapore’s ‘car-lite’ vision,” said Toh Ting Feng, CEO and co-founder of GetGo.

“By offering an affordable and efficient transportation alternative, we aspire to not just connect commuters but to inspire a paradigm shift, promoting a ‘car-lite’ ethos that aligns with our nation’s longstanding sustainable vision and the evolving needs of Singaporeans,” Toh explained.

Jeffrey Sim Vee Ming, group CEO of SBS Transit also said that in line with the Singapore Green Plan 2030, it is fully committed to forging collaborative partnerships and co-creating innovative solutions that encourage and inspire active mobility for a more sustainable future.

“Hence, we are delighted to join forces with GetGo to enhance first- and last-mile connectivity to our public transport networks, making our buses and trains more accessible, inclusive, and convenient for our commuters,” Sim said.

As GetGo expands its presence in Singapore, it recently opened a new office at the innovation district JTC Corporation in one-north in November last year, according to a LinkedIn post by Toh.

The post stated that the opening of the new office acts as a symbol of GetGo’s aspirations to be a home-grown global champion, representing the nation’s sustainable mobility hub.
