An opening today was due to be attended by Rudiantara, Indonesia’s minister of communications, and Dr Pansak Siriruchatapong, Thailand’s vice minister of digital economy.
Pinya Nittayakasetwat, GET CEO, said: “By combining the knowledge of our Thai management team with GO-JEK’s technology and expertise, GET is ideally placed to improve lives in Bangkok. In the two months since our beta launch, which covered a limited area of the city, we have already recorded 2 million transactions. This is undeniable proof of the need for more choice in our sector. Our driver-partners have already traveled a distance of over 3 million kilometres, or around seven trips to the moon and back.
“We have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback we have received from both riders and driver-partners. After refining the user experience, we’re now able to offer three services: GET Win, GET Delivery and GET Food to Bangkokians. Our food service is brand new and will offer competitive prices, personalisation and an impeccable service.”
