Uber wants rid­ers and driver­part­ners to truly ex­pe­ri­ence what Uber’s tech­nol­ogy can do for them.

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Malaysia Day - Uber’s con­nec­tiv­ity is bound­less and Malaysians are con­tin­u­ing to reap ben­e­fits from it.

their loved ones are safe from doorstep to des­ti­na­tion or vice versa.

Ul­ti­mately, Uber wants rid­ers and driver-part­ners to truly ex­pe­ri­ence what Uber’s tech­nol­ogy can do for them.

The gov­ern­ment’s recog­ni­tion of rideshar­ing pos­i­tively aligns with its vi­sion of how tech­nol­ogy trans­forms the way peo­ple move in Malaysia, mak­ing trans­porta­tion re­li­able and con­ve­nient for all.

This fur­ther shows the po­ten­tial that rideshar­ing has in go­ing a long way to­wards solv­ing ur­ban mo­bil­ity is­sues and trans­form­ing the coun­try’s trans­porta­tion land­scape on the whole.

Ride-shar­ing tech­nol­ogy is still new to many Malaysians, although the idea is catch­ing on rapidly be­cause of how easy it is to get a ride at a touch of a but­ton.

“Ul­ti­mately, we want Malaysians to ex­pe­ri­ence th­ese ben­e­fits them­selves. Our rid­ers and driver­part­ners are a tes­ta­ment to the grow­ing net­work we en­vi­sioned. When we first be­gan, the sim­ple idea of press­ing a but­ton and get­ting a ride sounded like science fic­tion,” said Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Head for Malaysia and Sin­ga­pore, Leigh Wong.

He added, “To­day, on a larger scale, we’re not just pro­vid­ing rid­ers an op­tion to travel or driver­part­ners an op­por­tu­nity to earn, but we’re also changing the way Malaysia moves in the ur­ban mo­bil­ity land­scape.

“With Malaysia hav­ing one of the high­est pri­vate car own­er­ship lev­els in the world, we’re get­ting peo­ple to think about how they could be part of the so­lu­tion to re­duce traf­fic con­ges­tion, en­joy more con­ve­nience and even con­trib­ute to im­prov­ing the en­vi­ron­ment.

“With less car own­er­ship, it isn’t so dif­fi­cult to imag­ine a world where we build fewer car parks and more parks in­stead.”

For de­tails, look out for the ad­ver­tise­ment in this StarSpe­cial.

Tech­nol­ogy gives us the op­tion of mov­ing around re­li­ably and con­ve­niently as we tend to im­por­tant tasks on the go.
