Car sharing service provider, GoCar Malaysia now has its cars available at 100 Shell stations in Malaysia in various locations in the Klang Valley, Johor Bahru and Penang. This complements GoCar’s other locations (about 230 spots) within these areas as well as Langkawi. The partnership between GoCar and Shell Malaysia is aimed at providing convenience to Malaysians in terms of travel options, where GoCar customers can use these Shell stations to purchase fuel, snacks, or use the amenities.
“GoCar started out with the focus of providing an alternative solution to the current transportation landscape in Malaysia. We are here to offer convenience and flexibility to users that need cars for various activities; be it commuting, running errands, or a road trip to Penang. We want to make owning a car, an option. Through this partnership, we can provide further convenience to our users. They can now enjoy the offering at Shell stations – from the quality fuels to the food and beverages,” commented Alan Cheah, CEO of GoCar Malaysia.
GoCar first deployed its cars to the Shell station on Jalan Tujuan, SS18 Subang in April 2017. By December 2017, it had cars in 39 Shell stations in the Klang Valley. Currently, it has cars parked at 58 Shell stations in the Klang Valley, 30 stations in Johor Bahru and 12 stations in Penang, and are looking to expand the network further to serve some 25,000 registered GoCar users.
Shairan Huzani Husain, Managing Director of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd added, “Here at Shell, we are always striving to innovate our products and services to ensure that our customers leave the stations happy and satisfied. Our collaboration with GoCar is first of its kind that enables us to offer all Malaysians an additional service under one roof – customers can now refuel, refresh, rejuvenate and enjoy the convenience of picking up a GoCar before they start their journeys.”
GoCar allows registered users to share/rent a pool of cars either by the hour or by the day via the GoCar app (available from App Store and Google Play). Its fleet are made up of sedans, crossovers, pickups and MPVs from Renault and Nissan, to cater to various user requirements.
