SBS Transit and GetGo Enter into Strategic Partnership to Advance Sustainable Mobility in Singapore

Joint News Release Issued by SBS Transit and GetGo

SBS Transit, a leading bus and rail operator in Singapore, and GetGo, Singapore’s leading car-sharing platform, have announced a new partnership to promote seamless and sustainable mobility solutions for a car-lite Singapore. Following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) today, both companies have committed to jointly promote car-sharing for better first- and last-mile connectivity to or from SBS Transit’s islandwide rail and bus network. 

This partnership aims to create a flexible, inclusive, and sustainable mobility ecosystem in Singapore, promoting the advantages of commuting anywhere by bus, train, and shared cars without the need for personal vehicle ownership. 

Both companies will also tie-up with external partners and merchants to offer marketing promotions via GetGo’s ‘GetDeals’ loyalty programme to encourage greener commutes. Partners that have previously participated in the GetDeals programme include Sentosa, Singapore Discovery Centre, and The Punggol Settlement. 

Mr. Jeffrey Sim Vee Ming, Group Chief Executive Officer of SBS Transit said: “In line with the Singapore Green Plan 2030, we are fully committed to forging collaborative partnerships and co-creating innovative solutions that encourage and inspire active mobility for a more sustainable future. Hence, we are delighted to join forces with GetGo to enhance first- and last-mile connectivity to our public transport networks, making our buses and trains more accessible, inclusive, and convenient for our commuters.”  

Speaking on this noteworthy partnership, Mr. Toh Ting Feng, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of GetGo said: “We are excited to announce GetGo’s partnership with SBS Transit, as it marks a pivotal step towards realising Singapore’s ‘car-lite’ vision. This collaboration underscores our commitment to redefining the future of urban mobility. By offering an affordable and efficient transportation alternative, we aspire to not just connect commuters but to inspire a paradigm shift, promoting a ‘car-lite’ ethos that aligns with our nation’s longstanding sustainable vision and the evolving needs of Singaporeans.”
