JAKARTA -- Indonesian ride-hailing operator Go-Jek will "within the coming weeks" start piloting its service in Singapore, challenging main rival Grab on its home turf, the company said on Monday.

Singapore will be Go-Jek's second overseas market; it launched operations in Vietnam in September through local partner Go-Viet. Its forays into neighboring countries are set to intensify its battle for regional dominance with Grab.
