Ride-sharing platforms have become popular in a comparatively short time. They have not only brought about a significant change in the modality of urban  public transportation but have also offered an opportunity to the riders to make a decent income at their convenience. These platforms are, however, yet to be regulated and address safety concerns raised at times by the stakeholders.

KATHMANDU, Feb 14: The Patan High Court on Wednesday directed the government to promulgate law to regulate ‘ride sharing’ services like Tootle and Pathao operating in the Kathmandu Valley.

KATHMANDU, Nov 27: The government has once again backed away from a decision to crack down on ride-sharing, following widespread public criticism.
