From Wednesday (2 January), ride-hailing firm Go-Jek will be extending its services to cover the whole of Singapore.

“Our islandwide rollout is part of our continued beta phase, during which DBS/POSB Bank customers continue to enjoy priority access to the app,” it said in an e-mail on Tuesday (1 January).

The Indonesia firm launched a beta version of its app here in late November and allowed increasing batches of users access to its services, which were limited to certain areas.

Users could initially make use of the app only within the Central Business District, Sentosa, Jurong East, Changi, Punggol and Ang Mo Kio.

“We continue to welcome feedback from driver-partners and riders during this enhanced beta phase, as we work to fine-tune the app and create the best experience for our users,” said Go-Jek in its e-mail.
