When it comes to owning a car in Singapore, we can only let out one big, fat sigh. The price of buying a car is not only exorbitant, but there’s also an endless list of considerations to keep in mind after zooming away in a new set of wheels.
But there’s a way to revel in the convenience of a car while dodging steep COE prices and yearly road tax. To all Singaporeans lusting after the fantasy of a road trip – there are some hidden gems out there – you can now go for a drive any time of the day with BlueSG’s electric car sharing service.
Insurance, petrol, parking fees and monthly maintenance costs? So many obstacles to owning a car in Singapore, when we just want the convenience of being able to go anywhere, at any time.
This convenience is now within easy reach with BlueSG – Singapore’s first 24/7 electric car sharing service. Driver and passengers are all covered by insurance, and there are no additional costs of petrol or parking fees.
Next time your stomach’s rumbling at 2AM, you can easily pick up a BlueSG car to satisfy your hunger at one of these late-night cafes. Use the BlueSG app (iOS | Android) to search for your nearest BlueSG stations at one glance – you can also see the number of BlueSG cars and parking spaces available at each station.
Once you’ve selected a convenient station, simply reserve a BlueSG car within one tap up to 30 minutes in advance. There’s no need to call a car rental company to hash out the logistics – bothersome tasks like figuring out collection timings and pick up points are a thing of the past.
Parking is often a major gripe for drivers but that’s not the case when you’re behind the wheel of a BlueSG car. Through the app, you can view the number of parking spots available. And even better – you’ll get free reserved parking! No more having to circle the carpark repeatedly or agonisingly wait for a parking lot to open up.
BlueSG cars also help reduce carbon dioxide emissions!
Late-night cafe-hopping? Midnight grocery runs? You can do both and more with BlueSG. With 24/7 availability, it’s convenient to pick up a car any time of the day for you to get through your endless list of chores and errands.
Since rental charges are fixed from just $0.33/minute and you can estimate the total cost of your journey in advance. You don’t have to worry about peak hour or midnight surcharges.
A 30-minute drive from Jurong East to Orchard will cost approximately $9.90 ($0.33 x 30 minutes).
