As an urban mobility startup, RushTrail has always had its passengers at heart. You guys are at the core of everything we do, from new services to app upgrades.
Covid-19 has thrown everything out of whack. Yet even though Work From Home (WFH) has become a new claustrophobic norm, not everyone gets to enjoy this privilege. In times like these, we want to provide as much support as we can, for the passengers who are still relying on us to get to the office and back.
Introducing: Bundle Deals for Region to Region Services
This is our way of saying thank you. From 15 September, you can tap on a new way to pay - through Bundle Deals.
These come in 2 sizes, the Basic Bundle and the Premium Bundle. In essence, the Basic Bundle is a 10-ticket deal at a fixed price of $55. That works out to just $5.50 a ride! The Premium Bundle works the same way, just upsized. At $100 for 20 tickets, each ride works out to an even lower $5 per ride. For those who are just starting out with RushTrail and are not sure which bundle is best for you - we’ve got your back too. Single tickets are available at $6 per ride.
The tickets in these Bundles (as well as the Single ticket) are valid till 31 December 2020, with fixed pick-up and drop-off timings. But unlike the usual subscription, you don’t have to use the tickets consecutively. You can travel any day you want to, before 2021.
But what about locations? Here’s where it gets exciting.
5 Locked Routes, and You’re the Key
With each Bundle you purchase, you contribute to the unlocking of a route of your choice. At the moment, we’re offering 5 options.
Pasir Ris to one-north
Seng Kang to one-north
Choa Chu Kang to one-north
Woodlands to one-north
Bedok to one-north
How does it work? Each route is unlocked at 160 points. A ticket is 1 point. So, if you purchase a Basic Bundle, you’re contributing 10 points to any one of the five routes (you pick). A Premium Bundle contributes 20 points, and a Single ticket contributes 1 point. Got friends living in the same region heading to one-north too? Rope them in, so you get a work commute filled with people you love! Monday Blues, who?
Once 160 points is hit, you will be notified that your route is unlocked. All morning pick-ups start by 7am, so you can be sure that you’ll reach your office by 8:30am. Evening pick-ups start at 5:45pm.
Slicker Routes make for Seamless Rides
These new incentives make it so that YOU decide the route - from region all the way to distinct stops. When you opt for any one of the five routes, you also get to input your preferred stop. Pooled with the rest of the stops entered by the other users contributing to the 160-points threshold, this means you get a route completely tailored by passengers. Better service at a lower cost? You can’t blame us for wanting to spread the love.
You can start pre-booking tickets for your desired routes from 15 September, so why wait? Download the RushTrail app now to get started.
