The Launch of Rideasy, The First Car-sharing Platform in Malaysia

Just last week, has their soft launch their web application at APW Bangsar. Being the first Malaysia online car-sharing service provider, they aim to reduce the number of cars on the road and at the same time offering car owners to earn money from this service.

Officiating their soft launch today, Rideasy’s CEO Nizran Kudus and his partner, Rizal Mukti, presented prizes to winners of their survey contest that was held throughout the month of September and October.

Also in attendance was Omar Hatmi, MD of Active Telematics, Rideasy’s telematics partner, gave a presentation on how his company is involved in Rideasy’s online fleet management. Thereafter, Nizran gave a short presentation on what Rideasy is about as well as to premier the company’s corporate video., a Malaysian company that started in August 2016, is a new enterprise that offers a user-friendly, secure and comprehensive online platform for users to share and borrow cars from its community members. For car owners, this will be a good platform to earn some extra income, and as for borrowers, it will be a suitable alternative transportation platform to opt from especially those seeking to be free of financial commitments of owning and maintaining a car.

With Rideasy, borrowers will have a wide selection of vehicles to choose from, such as sedans, MPVs, SUVs and high-end vehicles, all at an affordable price of up to 30% cheaper than normal market rates.

Furthermore, users will have peace-of-mind as all transactions will be contracted with a sharing agreement and via a strategic partnership with Allianz Insurance, shared vehicle will be protected with 24/7 nationwide breakdown assistance and personal accident coverage. This is probably the most important point for the car drivers and car owners as well.

“This is an exciting new initiative in transportation in Malaysia, but it is the future as more and more young people, especially millennials, are opting to not own a vehicle due to its depreciating value. Our research showed that the younger generation does not place heavy emphasis on asset ownership, and would rather spend on travel and exploring the world. Rideasy aims to fulfill this need by providing vehicles on-demand. They’ll have the possibility of using a vehicle as needed for either a short term or for a longer period of time, whilst being free from having to bear any associated ownership costs such as hire-purchase, maintenance and so on…”, said Mr. Nizran.

I personally find that Rideasy's website is easy to use for both car owners and borrowers. So for those who plan to get a ride for special occasions such as weddings, events, balik kampung or even for moving house purposes, this car-sharing platform may be the right choice for you.
