SOCAR Offers Alternative Transportation Option for Malaysians


The mandatory requirement for private ride-hailing drivers to hold a public service vehicle (PSV) licence has caused concern that the number of drivers will drop, even with the three-month extension for drivers to obtain a licence. We still do not know if ride-hailing passengers will encounter longer waits for a ride or price surges due to demand when the grace period is up.

Do you depend on ride-hailing for your daily commute? Don’t own a car? It may be time to consider alternative options. This is where SOCAR comes into the picture. One of Malaysia’s top car-sharing services, SOCAR lets you book a car by the hour, day or week all through the mobile app. No more complicated car rental forms. Just tap, unlock via the SmartKey within the SOCAR app and drive, 24/7.

Perfect for first-mile last-mile transportation, you can conveniently book, pick up and drop off your SOCAR at strategic public transit stations and hubs serving as SOCAR zones – currently covering 37 public transit stations and hubs in the Klang Valley, as well as 2 transportation hubs each in Seremban and Johor and 1 in Penang.
