TREVO – the latest and most innovative app-based people-to-people car sharing marketplace, recently hosted residents and commuters working in its Bangsar neighbourhood at the TREVO Lighthouse Activation Center in a casual gathering called Grill-lah, where attendees learnt more about how they could benefit from the platform.
All the while feasting on fresh Ramly burgers served up by Leon Foong, CEO of SOCAR and Susan Teoh, General Manager of TREVO, with the help of a local burger stall owner. Those who signed up to be a TREVO Host on the spot even had the opportunity to earn RM100, during the two-day activity held on 29 and 30 July from 6pm to 9pm daily, which attracted 150 people across the two days.
TREVO, a subsidiary of SOCAR Mobility Malaysia, connects users (Guests) and car owners (Hosts), allowing Guests to book any car that fits their mobility needs and enabling Hosts to earn extra income to offset the cost of car ownership. This, in turn, expands the existing mobility choices available to Malaysians, enabling TREVO to become the next chapter in the overall multiflex mobility story. Think of it of Airbnb for cars.
“While Malaysians are gradually learning about the sharing economy, is it important to step up efforts to introduce this concept to those who could benefit during this challenging economic climate. We want to expand the promise of the sharing economy and empower more Malaysians to enjoy the benefits of shared assets, where they can enjoy the advantages of driving without committing to car ownership. TREVO offers the promise of endless choices to fit different needs - the key is to empower social inclusion by expanding access, so nobody is left out - no matter where you fit in our diverse and vibrant society,” said Leon Foong, CEO of SOCAR Mobility Malaysia. TREVO also recently expanded to Penang.
Meanwhile, Susan Teoh, General Manager of TREVO said TREVO emphasises on community engagement in building a growing pool of members who can be both Hosts and Guests. “We want to empower Malaysians to drive their dreams. For Guests, having more mobility choices means more options in fulfilling their travel dreams with a wide selection of cars to meet their ad-hoc needs. While for Hosts, we offer the opportunity to earn extra income from their underused cars."
For potential Guests and Hosts concerned about safety, they can be assured that TREVO takes their safety very seriously. Their TREVO Shield insurance coverage safeguards both Hosts and Guests against damage and liability, while during this pandemic, their sanitisation SOPs also helps ensure a cleaner and safer drive for all Guests.
