Ryde Introduces RydePool Car Pooling Service In Malaysia!


An Introduction To Ryde + RydePool

Ryde was started by Singaporean financier Terence Zou in 2015, to encourage carpooling as a greener and more convenient transportation option.

Using its in-app request and matching technology, the RydePool service matches drivers on a particular route with commuters hoping to hitch a ride along the same route.

Unlike other ride-hailing apps, Ryde allows both advanced and on-demand bookings for RydePool, so drivers and riders can better plan their journey.

In addition, RydePool fares are based on a not-for-profit model, where riders pay for the cost contribution of the trip, taking into consideration the distance travelled, petrol, toll and car depreciation costs.

After becoming the number one carpool app in Singapore, Ryde is expanding globally, with Malaysia as their first step. They plan to introduce Ryde to Sydney in 2020, and Hong Kong after that.

Ryde officially launched the Ryde app and RydePool carpooling service today (16 October 2019) in the Klang Valley, with plans to eventually roll it out to other major Malaysian cities like Johor, Penang and Melaka.

You can download the Ryde app and sign up to be a driver or rider starting today, but the RydePool service will only kick off on 1 November 2019.

Ryde is currently offering drivers zero commission fares, which means the driver gets to pocket 100% of their fares to offset their driving expenses.

Later, Ryde may introduce commission rate (currently 9% in Singapore), although they are looking to monetise in other ways, like advertising and partnerships with multinational companies.


Ryde + RydePool Availability

The Ryde app is available for downloads and sign-ups from 16 October 2019 onwards, from both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

The RydePool service will begin on 1 November 2019.
