PETALING JAYA: Another intercity ride-sharing app has joined the fray just in time for Hari Raya.
Called Droupr, the app was launched on Friday, making it the third after GrabHitch and UberPool.
“One of the most annoying thing about the festive period is trying to get transport either to go back your hometown or get back home after it.
“If you fail to get public transport, the next best thing is to share a ride with someone heading the same destination,” said Sharifah Shahidah, communications director for Droupr, which is based at Cyberjaya.
A Malaysian developed app, Droupr matches car owners with potential passengers to allow a “community-based, safe travelling experience” with no profits.
“Droupr is engineered to create a trust-based community with declared identities and full member profiles.
“Users register in the system using their real name with a valid e-mail address and phone number.
“To ensure passengers safety, the system offers members the option to include their identity card and house address verification,” said Sharifah.
