[prMac.com] Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - Coinciding with the 1 Asean Entrepreneurship (1AES) Summit held in the middle of November, Busttle Eco Ride Sdn. Bhd, the official "Getting There" partner for the summit released their native Tumpang ridesharing app for iOS and Android users. Aimed at providing a solution to bridge the last mile and provide commuters with short distance rides, Tumpang 1.0 not only connects consumers with the mass rapid transit systems (LRT and MRT) but also provides a cost effective, convenient and safe way of traveling around their respective neighborhoods.
Tumpang operates on a cashless, flat-rate model offering rides at at only RM5 per customer for trips within designated zones of 3 kilometers. Currently available in the areas of Cyberjaya, Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, Bangsar, Bangsar South and Bandar Utama, Tumpang also enables consumers to leave their cars at home or in the office instead of having to hunt for parking when heading out for lunch for example. The service utilizes a readily available fleet of fully licensed taxis and drivers that are allocated to respective zones and aims at empowering taxi drivers by letting them decide the hours they'd like to drive and areas they would like to be stationed at.
Unlike other ride hailing services, Tumpang is a ridesharing service positioned as a new class of transportation that's cheaper than a conventional taxi ride but more convenient than waiting for the bus. Drivers and cars are always on standby within the serviced zones and rides are allocated based on available capacity. No longer do you need to wait and see if you've got a ride. With Tumpang, commuters are instantly assigned a ride and provided with the drivers details and ability to track approximately how far the driver is from them and how long the wait will be. Credit top ups or monthly subscriptions for those who ride more frequently can be done from within the app itself either via PayPal or through a direct transaction from your local bank account.
Don't drive and hunt for parking - Try Tumpang instead! Malaysia's first flat-rate ride sharing service now available for iOS and Android.
