The partnership with Allianz Indonesia and PasarPolis represents a step toward increased safety and security from the moment a passenger orders a ride through the app, to their arrival at their desired destination,”

“Gojek service passengers have now received protection during the trip. For GoRide services, we collaborate with Allianz, and GoCar service as Special Public Transportation that has also received protection from Jasa Raharja as mandated by the Laws and also the Regulation from Minister of Transportation no. 118 of 2010,” added Hans.
