400 shared cars to be available near some MRT stations in SBS Transit & GetGo tie-up

400 shared cars available near NEL & DTL MRT stations from 26 Feb

Transport operator SBS Transit has teamed up with car sharing company GetGo to bring 400 shared cars within a walking distance of North East Line (NEL) and Downtown Line (DTL) MRT stations.

This follows the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the two firms on Monday (26 Feb).

The move offers better first- and last-mile transport solutions for commuters in Singapore, and helps advances sustainable mobility.

Both companies will also be bringing more marketing promotions to commuters via collaborations with external partners and merchants.

According to The Straits Times (ST), 400 GetGo cars will be available within 500m of 50 stations across the NEL and DTL.

In addition, SBS Transit and GetGo will work with external partners and merchants to bring promotional deals to commuters via GetGo’s “GetDeals” programme.
