Gojek celebrates three years in Singapore, goes the extra mile to support driver-partners
‘Go the Extra Mile’ campaign will see $1 per completed trip given back to eligible driver-partners throughout Gojek’s anniversary week
SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 29
November 2021 - To mark its three-year
anniversary in Singapore, Gojek today announced the launch of its 'Go the Extra
Mile' campaign which will see $1 per completed trip given back to
driver-partners throughout its
anniversary week - 29 November - 5 December. The campaign aims to show
appreciation to driver-partners, who have been instrumental in moving Singapore
safely amid the pandemic, and builds on the more than 1 million free and discounted vaccination
rides provided by Gojek in 2021.
Through the initiative,
Gojek hopes to rally consumers to show their appreciation for driver-partners
by taking Gojek rides to contribute more to drivers' earnings, as well as
encouraging them to show drivers some love through verbal thank-yous and their
own small gestures. On top of their existing GoCar incentives, qualifying
drivers will receive additional 'Go the Extra Mile' earnings at the end of the
campaign, paid out directly to driver-partners' earnings wallets.
Lien Choong Luen, General Manager of Gojek Singapore, said, "The last year has undoubtedly been one of the most challenging
for us since our launch in Singapore, and we are proud to be celebrating our
third anniversary in spite of the difficulties faced. One thing is for certain,
we would not be here without the commitment and resilience of our
driver-partners. They are the very heart of Gojek and this year's birthday is
dedicated to them."
He added, "'Go the Extra Mile' builds on our commitment to support those
within our ecosystem, and show our collective appreciation to our
driver-partners. We remain more focused than ever on finding ways to support
them and keep Singapore moving safely as we continue to strengthen our offering
and provide better experiences for users."
