Election season has never been an easy time for anyone, so when it was announced that the 14th Malaysian General Election will be held on a Wednesday, it came as no surprise that many are finding it tough to even go home to cast their vote.

Inspired by the #PulangMengundi and #CarpoolGE14 trend on social media, a group of young Malaysians randomly stumbled across each other online and decided to collaborate to build a platform in hopes to help other Malaysians go home and vote. All in the name of helping fellow Malaysians to perform their civic duty. What feel-good story could be better than that?

To ensure the legitimacy of riders and those helping out, voters are requested to disclose their IC and voting information, their Facebook/Twitter ID, and proof of travel expenditure.

Potential donors are also allowed to determine who they want to fund; such decisions can be made based on information like whether the voter is a student or where the voter(s) need to travel to in order to vote.
