Klang Valley residents can now enjoy ride-hailing service with greater accessibility, affordability and flexibility with inDriver.
Egor Fedorov, inDriver’s Chief Operating Officer said today’s launch of its ride-hailing service in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor demonstrates its strong commitment to serve the needs of Malaysia’s ride-hailing market.
“We’re very excited with today’s launch as we continue with our journey to bring change in the way we access ride-hailing services in the country. Our users throughout Malaysia have enjoyed greater mobility with our feature and we believe this will be especially true for ride-hailing users in the Klang Valley.
“Meanwhile, as we remain focused on providing freedom of choice to our users, we’re also committed to improving our services and enhancing users’ experience. We will be adding new features and services in the future and we hope our users will continue to look forward to what’s in store for them.”
Prior to today’s launch, the company announced on 1 October 2021 that the app is officially available in Penang, Alor Setar, Sungai Petani, Ipoh, Taiping, Melaka, Johor Bahru, Batu Pahat, Kluang, Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu, Kuching, Miri, Sibu, Bintulu and Kota Kinabalu.
The international ride-hailing app with over 100 million users worldwide utilizes the Real-Time Deal (RTD) feature which enables passengers to book rides at affordable rates at any time of the day, while allowing drivers to accept ride requests that are most convenient and profitable to them.
The app’s RTD model allows passengers to set their preferred fare for their selected route. Nearby drivers will then receive the request notification and they have the freedom to accept the offered fare, ignore the offer, or bargain for a better price.
The RTD model also frees inDriver users from price surges due to peak hours, traffic conditions, and request history.
Another advantage of inDriver is that drivers are not automatically assigned to riders. Once the counteroffers are in, passengers can select the most suitable driver that meets their preferences – fare, driver’s rating, estimated time of arrival, or vehicle model.
Meanwhile, to ensure the safety of both drivers and passengers, the inDriver app provides the feature to share users’ GPS location and ride details in real-time with trusted contacts. The app also incorporates an emergency button that will connect passengers or drivers directly with law enforcement agencies in case of emergency.
For a limited time, drivers who signed up with inDriver can enjoy zero service payment.
