Every Friday, more than 3 million Muslim men visit the mosque for Friday Prayers in Klang Valley. More than half would drive their cars to and from causing traffic congestions. With limited parking spots, many a times illegal parking takes place obstructing and causing inconvenience to other road users.
Introducing Jomaat, a free to use mobile app solution to encourage carpooling during Friday Prayers.
As a rider, you simple choose an available ride from the map view and book a seat with the driver to get a ride for free! No payment is needed.
As a driver, you are able to dictate your mosque destination and create a ride for riders to find and book a seat with you. Every trip completed will earn you points that can be redeemed with participating corporate sponsors.
