“We are excited to kickstart 2023 with a new service offering – GoCar Kids and GoCar XL Kids. Families travelling with young children have often requested this feature for greater safety and convenience, and it also allows driver-partners additional earnings opportunities as well, said Lien Choong Luen, General Manager of Gojek Singapore.

Wanting to ensure optimal safety when travelling with children, driver-partners who complete trips under Gojek’s two service types will have a minimum rating of 4.6 stars.
They will also be made to undergo online training and verification to make sure that they are equip with relevant knowledge on how to install a child seat in compliance with Gojek’s requirements.
All of the child seats that are used in GoCar Kids and GoCar XL Kids services should come from a Gojek-approved brand that also meet one or more of the standards approved by the Traffic Police 2. This is the company’s way of giving its consumers complete peace of mind when travelling with Gojek.
The launch of GoCar Kids and GoCar XL Kids is also expected to bring increased earning opportunities for Gojek’s driver-partners.
Both service types will give driver-partners greater flexibility to take on more trips from passengers who are travelling with children. An additional fixed fee of S$2 is applied on top of the usual GoCar and GoCar XL rates.
