Transport company ComfortDelGro announced today (June 7) that it will bring its taxi, private bus, car rental and leasing and lifestyle businesses under a new division called the Private Mobility Group.
According to the company, the move aims to synergise and leverage on its core strengths in land transport solutions, whilst making it easier for customers to gain access to the various services in the Group.
As part of this plan, ComfortDelGro will be introducing a “mega app” that will allow customers to select from a variety of service offerings from a single platform by early next year.
At the core, customers can use the app to book taxi, private bus, car rental and leasing services.
For instance, taxi users can opt to rent a car for the weekend just by clicking on the “One CDG” option on the app. The new PMG will have a combined fleet size of over 12,000 vehicles.
The app will also include lifestyle options like restaurant bookings that are currently available on its Zig app.
Jackson Chia, head of the Private Mobility Group, shared that the company also has plans to add other services in the Group like learner driving services and medical transport in the future.
“The intent is to cross-market CDG’s extensive range of transport solutions to enable convenience to the different communities that we serve,” he said.
“The ComfortDelGro Group has a broad range of mobility solutions in Singapore. Pooling the resources in the PMG will enable us to develop smart and green intermodal mobility solutions for our clients. With scale and our diverse range of assets, we will be better positioned to forge partnerships to experiment and offer innovative products and services.”
