Nepal’s most loved ride-sharing platform, Pathao, has officially completed its 3 years journey yesterday. On 25th September 2018, Pathao had officially started its ride-sharing service. It was launched with the motive of offering mobility solutions by providing economical ride-sharing options in vehicles like bikes and cars.
Within its three years time period, Pathao has been successful to provide easy and quick rides to people. Not only that, it has created hundreds of employment opportunities among the Nepalese people who can ride bikes and cars. The regional director of Pathao, Mr. Asim Man Singh Basnyat seems excited about the impact Pathao has been making in the employment sector.
With its increasing popularity, on 1st August 2019, Pathao successfully added car-lite which is a taxi service to its business. It easily convinced the taxi drivers because it aimed to remove the troubling bargaining system in the taxi business. Furthermore, in the present context, Pathao has been successful to cover more than 50 percent of the taxi business running within the valley. The taxi drivers have been involved with Pathao becoming more and more technology-friendly day by day.

Similarly, on 25th September 2020, Pathao extended its service by launching “Pathao Food”. Pathao Food delivers food to the people from the hotels, restaurants, and cafes all over the valley. About after two business years of its ride-sharing service, Pathao food too became very popular among the local people. “The major credit behind fostering of the Pathao food delivery business is the customers itself”, says Mr. Basnyat. Also, the people who ride cycles gained employment opportunities indulging in the food delivery service.
Employment opportunities have been thriving in this sector since Pathao officially started its business. The works are easy to obtain and even part-time jobs are available in the company. Mr. Basnyat says, “Many students have been utilizing their time productively by working part-time and earning through Pathao. We often see youngsters working part-time in foreign countries to become self-dependent. Similarly, Pathao has been providing employment opportunities to even the younger generation who want to work in their spare time.”
Pathao has not only won the hearts of its customers but its workers as well. For the safety of its riders and its customers, it has started doing insurance of its riders by cooperating with the Everest Insurance Company. This has been done for the very first time in Nepal.
Also, recently, Pathao has launched its Pathao Bazaar on Jestha 30. It delivers groceries and other items from the market. Moreover, its significant feature is that it delivers the items to your house within 45 minutes of the order placed.
On the occasion of Nepalese people’s biggest festival Bijaya Dashami 2078, Pathao has announced “Pathao Dashain Mahotsav”. Pathao Dashain Mahotsav targets both its riders and customers. As bumper prizes, one of the lucky riders will be awarded TVS Bike. Similarly, a lucky customer will get a chance to win the iPhone 12 Pro.
On the completion of three successful years of Pathao Nepal, Mr. Basnyat states, “Pathao has become the top and the most loved ride-sharing platform in Nepal. The credit for this goes to our service recipients, media colleagues, partner companies, rider-captains, food delivery friends, and our office mates. Therefore, we are extremely grateful for your help and support and all of these wouldn’t have been possible without you all. We expect to receive the same kind of love and support in the coming days.”
The advancement in technology has brought Pathao’s service to the people and both the customers and the workers have equally benefitted from the organization. From creating numerous employment opportunities to providing convenient rides to the people, Pathao has received extreme love from the people.
