December 15th, 2016 | PRESS RELEASE SHARETRANSPORT APP
- NEW! Real-time tracking of bus locations will also enhance fixed bus schedules to increase predictability for local commuters
Singapore, 15th December 2016 – Sharetransport.sg, a subsidiary of Commute Solutions Group officially launched Version 2 of its mobile application today to offer Singaporeans added convenience of viewing over 120 available bus routes and making immediate bookings for their daily transportation needs, anytime and anywhere, all from the comfort of their smartphone or mobile devices.
Originally established as a web platform that fulfills bus-pooling requests across the entire country, ShareTransport has been leveraging the power of crowdsourcing to offer bus services that are in demand for the most popular routes from various origins to destinations island-wide, providing compelling value for commuters with the following key benefits:
- Predictability of transport timings at a daily, regular schedule
- Comfort of guaranteed seats in air-conditioned buses
- Cheaper costs than taxis and cabs, and more comfortable than public buses and MRT, especially during peak hours
The introduction of the mobile app upgrade since its start since July this year, is also timed to coincide with a revamp of the original buspooling platform at sharetransport.sg website, where registered users now have the option of accessing the same functions on the same user-friendly and intuitive app interface either on their phone or through the Internet browser.
Users can also use the app to track the real-time location of their pre-booked bus service – empowering them to organize their daily travel timings with more certainty and efficiency. The app is free for download on the Apple Appstore for iPhone and iPad users, as well as Google Play for Android users.

MD of Commute Solutions, Mr Pang Kok Leong said, “As one of the pioneers in our local transportation pooling industry, we have always been listening to our customer needs and monitoring the changing trends of Singapore’s transportation industry. The ‘uberization’ of various industries, especially in travel and commuting services, has encouraged us to continuously improve our ShareTransport mobile app to provide greater convenience and empowerment to our users. By first providing a platform to consolidate the most demanded and popular bus routes, and then delivering them through our dedicated and highly reliable premium bus services in full air-conditioned comfort, we hope to lessen the stress faced by our Singaporean commuters in an increasingly congested traffic network, as they rush to work and then back home everyday.”
ShareTransport is fully aligned to Singapore’s ‘Smart Nation’ masterplan to empower individual commuters through data and analytics, while reducing overall traffic congestions and improving island-wide connectivity. This is done by providing a complete, seamless, end-to-end bus-pooling experience right from suggestion and selection of routes, all the way till fulfilment of daily rides with a strong emphasis on customer service and customization.
