New App Zipster Allows You To Plan & Pay For Transport Rides On 1 Platform
Have you ever opened up Grab followed by GoJek to compare the fare prices? Pretty inconvenient isn’t it? Well, you don’t have to worry about that now.
Zipster, which was launched on Monday (16 Sep), is an all-in-one transport app that will provide you with a price comparison guide between public transport, Grab, Gojek as well as taxis.
The app will also tell you how much time it takes when you take a specific mode of transport.

If you choose the public transport option, the app will also direct you to the bus stop and tell you the time of the next bus’s arrival. It pretty much works like Google Maps, except with the price of the journey.
Subscription plans that cover bus, train and taxi fares
The app will also offer subscription packages which will give commuters free bus and train rides, while also providing discounts on ride-hailing services like Grab and Gojek. According to MobilityX – the startup behind the app – CEO Colin Lim, those who take public transport lots can expect to save up to 20% on their monthly transport spending.
There will be 3 to 5 of such plans, ranging from $50 to $100. The plans will also give users some level of customisation depending on their needs.
