Indonesia’s leading ride-hailing service, GoJek, now part of GoTo Gojek Tokopedia, is rolling out a game-changing multimodal service solution called GoRide Transit. This innovative offering seamlessly integrates GoRide’s ride-hailing service with public transportation, providing commuters with a one-stop solution for their daily journeys.
With GoRide Transit, commuters can embark on a smooth and cost-effective travel experience. The service allows individuals to book a GoRide ride to the nearest station, hop onto a public train operated by the KRL Commuterline, and complete their journey with another GoRide ride to their final destination.
This integration not only simplifies the daily commute but also enhances the overall travel experience. When selecting their final destination, users will be provided with a tailored route, making it easier to plan their journey. QR tickets are issued for the KRL Commuterline, streamlining access to the train service. Furthermore, passengers can track train trips in real-time, ensuring that they are always aware of their journey’s progress.
Patrick Walujo, President Director of the GoTo Group, highlighted the company’s strategic goal of expanding its product offerings to cater to a wider range of consumers, particularly those who rely on public transportation. He stated, “GoRide Transit is in line with GoTo Group’s strategy to expand its product offerings to cater to a wider group of consumers with a focus on those who use public transportation.”
This new service aligns with GoTo Group’s commitment to sustainability. By encouraging the use of public transportation, GoRide Transit contributes to more eco-friendly and sustainable mobility options. The company is dedicated to a zero-waste, zero-emissions, and zero-barriers approach to mobility.
Indonesia’s Minister of Transportation, Budi Karya Sumadi, expressed his hopes that GoRide Transit would address urban congestion and air pollution issues. Studies by the Center for Transportation and Logistics Studies at Gadjah Mada University (PUSTRAL UGM) have shown that GoRide Transit reduces travel time by 15% and can lead to a 27% cost savings per trip, streamlining KRL ticket queues and GoRide waiting times at stations.
GoJek’s commitment to improving commuting experiences was recently acknowledged as part of UNIQLO’s 10-year anniversary celebration in Indonesia. UNIQLO partnered with popular Indonesian brands, including GoJek, Indomie, and Tolak Angin, to create a special collection of UNIQLO t-shirts featuring iconic cartoon characters representing these brands.
Together, these efforts demonstrate GoJek’s dedication to enhancing the daily lives of Indonesian commuters and promoting sustainable, efficient, and convenient transportation solutions. With GoRide Transit, the future of urban commuting in Indonesia is poised for positive transformation.
