Ryde began its story in 2014 as Singapore’s first carpool app, with a vision to solve the country’s traffic and pollution problem. In the time since, Ryde has expanded to offer a full suite of mobility and delivery options, including employee transportation, quick commerce services, rentals and more.

Previously using Google’s Directions API to support drivers with accurate directions from origin to destination, Ryde soon found their API costs were surging beyond sustainable levels as their operations grew in scale. Thus began their search for a more affordable yet performant alternative. Thankfully, it wasn’t long before they found via Google Cloud Marketplace!

Upon evaluating our Directions API, Ryde concluded that it would be the perfect fit for them. A quick, high-performing solution designed to operate at scale without breaking the bank was exactly what they needed. Moreover, the customizability that offers opens possibilities for Ryde to implement custom route permissions as required in the future. And so, it was decided. Ryde is now officially a customer!’s strategic use of a blend of Directions API calls enables cost-effective solutions with precise ETAs, seamlessly empowering our scaling efforts while optimizing operations for accuracy and sustainability in our growth journey.
