Back in March, Goto was formally recognised as a booking entity. This new status allows us to have affiliated drivers, but we weren't ready to start accepting affiliations immediately.
We've since finalised our internal processes and requirements for affiliated drivers, and are pleased to announce you can now affiliate directly to Goto. Unlike any other local booking entity, Goto charges no depo rent or monthly fees, making it the only booking entity you can affiliate to completely free.
As we are expecting a fair few drivers to change their affiliation, we're only opening applications for two weeks. If you'd like to affiliate to Goto just follow the steps below:
- Sign up to drive via the Goto app
- Fill out this short form with your details by April 30th
- We'll contact you to confirm your affiliation has been approved
- Notify DVS of changes to your affiliation
As always, if you have any comments or feedback you can leave a comment via Facebook. Some frequently asked questions are below:
