PRESS RELEASE: Wunder, A New Ride Hailing Company Is Here in Malaysia!!

After launching its first city in Asia in 2016, Wunder, the popular app that connects car owners and commuters is now expanding to major cities across the region in 2017. The app is now available for residents of Kuala Lumpur.

Founded in 2013 in Germany, Wunder is the world’s largest online community for commuters. Wunder’s vision is to empower individuals, through technology, to free their cities from traffic.

Wunder is a social network for getting to work. The app, available for free for iOS and Android phones, connects people who are traveling in the same direction for the purpose of taking unnecessary cars off the road.

Car owners can choose to leave their car at home and ride with another Wunderer. Alternatively they can choose to share empty seats in their own car and split the cost of petrol.

After opening Metro Manila in February, 2016 the Wunder network rapidly grew to over 200,000 car owners and commuters sharing everyday trips to the office and back home.

Sam Baker, COO of Wunder recalls: “Wunder learned in our research that while 92% of car owners would be comfortable sharing seats on the way to work only 32% knew someone who travelled in the same direction, at the same time as them. A perfect opportunity to use technology to connect people!”

Wunder quickly gained popularity among office professionals working in the central business districts of Metro Manila and shot to the top of the iOS and Android app charts in the Philippines.

The most common profession for car owners in Wunder in the Philippines is currently Accountants and Software Engineers.

This comes as little surprise given that Wunder is a brand new technology that helps car owners recover some of their cost.

“Wunder is looking forward working with residents of Kuala Lumpur to take cars off the road. Building a community-organized solution to traffic takes time. We ask for patience and persistence among Wunder pioneers while we build a critical mass of commuters in the city” says Baker.
