SOCAR is Still Operational Across Malaysia

Due to the nationwide Movement Control Order, many businesses and services have been ordered to close as a preventive measure towards containing the COVID-19 outbreak.

So naturally, many have been asking us this important question :

“Is SOCAR still operational?”

And the answer is,


As Malaysia’s No.1 Car-Sharing App, we will continue to provide the convenience to book any of our 2,000+ cars at all SOCAR zones across the country. (But only when necessary okay?)

But if movement is restricted, how will you book from a nearby SOCAR zone?

Let’s #FlattenTheCurve Together

As a car-sharing ‘community’, we should do everything we can in our power to help #FlattenTheCurve, and prevent any further spread of COVID-19. All it takes is a few simple steps :

  • Only travel when necessary
    The Movement Control Order has been set in place for a reason – to limit the movement of people. So unless absolutely necessary, try to limit how much you have to travel.
  • Stay within the borders
    It has been declared that inter-state travel is no longer allowed. So even though we provide One-way Intercity bookings, we highly recommend not making any ‘balik kampung’ plans at the moment.
  • Clean up after yourself
    Our car-sharing community only works if we work together. It is our duty to regularly clean & sanitize each SOCAR for you, but you can also do your part in cleaning up after yourself to ensure minimal spread of the virus through surfaces.

The next few weeks will be tough for everyone in Malaysia, including us! But we assure you that we are doing our very best to ensure our cars and services are always available, with just one tap.

Stay strong Malaysia. SOCAR is always here for you. 💪🇲🇾
