Bringing innovative ideas into the market
"When three young entrepreneurs founded web portal Gothere.sg last year, they just wanted to make it easier to get from one place to another in Singapore. The Government wants to see more unique, innovative products created locally, but Mr Tharman said yesterday that Singapore still has 'a lot of catching up to do'. 'We see it growing. There are more start-ups and smaller players who are making their mark,' he added."
“And I don’t mean conceptually - it rocks right now. You can change your destination by dragging markers on the map, and the bus route is changed dynamically. How cool is that!”
Going from here to there… now much easier
“I don’t know how they built this, but GoThere.sg is awesome. Wonderful idea and implementation; I’m sure it will get even better. It’s one of those apps you never think about, but when they do pop up they help make life better and you wonder why it took so long, how you possibly did without — always the hallmark of a great app in the making.”
Gothere.sg simply rocks!
“I’ve been using it for a few days to plan my (driving) routes, and the bus and train information it comes up with in a jiffy makes me want to take buses and trains for when I don’t really need to use the car.”
"Plan your commute using gothere.sg. This local website is a boon, whether you drive or take public transport."
“Definitely helps people find their way around in an easy to understand way. clean and light design greets you the moment you hit the website. Type in a starting point together with a destination, and in moments, gothere.sg shows you how to get there by public transportation or car.”

Top 50 websites
"What makes Gothere different is the fact that it was created by Singaporeans for Singaporeans. You can use the service to find out how to get to, say, Tuas Avenue 1 by car, bus or the MRT. Gothere.sg takes into account all factors that make transportation unique in Singapore such as fluctuating Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) charges and taxi surcharges."
Doesn’t the interface feel finger lickin’ good?
“Most Singaporeans know about gothere.sg, but if you’re not a local, go see.”
“Just enter a name, part of a name, postal code, or just a local name, and it'll calculate the distance for all 3 modes of travel - driving, bus only, or bus+MRT. In fact it's so spot on, that the colleagues I have introduced this website to, have bookmarked it.”
“This has to be the most important for me and people who do not own a car. Choose where you are going from and where you are off to and Gothere.sg will tell you how to drive there or how to travel to the destination via public transport with two options, ‘Bus only’ OR ‘Bus and Train’. Gothere.sg plans your route with train and bus information from both SBS AND SMRT. What Gothere.sg did was to add overlays of local information like block numbers, building names, bus stop locations coupled with bus services and even ERP gantry locations. This made a great product even better and relevant to the locals.”
“Unless you have been living under a rock all these time, you would have used gothere.sg at one point or another. It is now a fantabulous site that I keep dear on the Bookmark Bar on my Camino browser".
Pretty darn cool
“They showcased their streetlevel views function to me, which I thought was pretty darn cool. Gothere is the first Singapore street directory site to incorporate such a function. Basically, it allows users to look at a visual snapshot of the roads where they are going, which is a great help if you’re unfamiliar with the place.”
“Local startup GoThere.sg provides a valuable service for people who travels, and especially for those who are clueless about places in Singapore. Basically the site gives you fast and accurate instructions to get from Point A to Point B, either by public transport or by car.”
The beacon of light
“Gothere.sg is a site that I am very thankful for. I can say that once I was lost in the dark, looking for directions aimlessly and Gothere.sg turns out to be that beacon of light that show me the way. (waa… very dramatic).”
It’s fast becoming my favourite directory site for finding my way around.
“You don’t need know postal code of locations, it works with general names like vivocity, bugis etc. The bus only option allows me to make full use of bus concession (though travel times are usually much longer). Bus stops appear on the map and clicking on them shows what buses goes to that bus stop.”
One extremely f***ing kickass site for those living in Singapore
“It provides the time taken to travel to your destination by public transport/car/taxi, and even gives you a cost estimate for your cab ride or bus/train fare. What the f*** eh? And it’s so awesomely pretty too! Five minutes into browsing and I’m already declaring this my favourite local site.”
