The ride-sharing company Pathao Limited has received license (enlistment certificate) from Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA).
Pathao is the first major ride-sharing company to get the license from the road transport regulatory agency of the government, says a press release of the company issued yesterday.
Hussain M Elius, CEO and co-founder of Pathao said, “As the largest on-demand digital platform in Bangladesh, we are grateful to accept the enlistment certificate from BRTA”.
“The enlistment certificate is yet another step in our mission of transforming lives and our pursuit of a Digital Bangladesh” he added.
Pathao has been working collaboratively with government agencies, to ensure the safety and security of its users and riders. Hundreds of thousands of people today depend on Pathao for their livelihood, the release adds.
Pathao has been providing ride-sharing services since 2016. Currently, Pathao has over 2 lakh registered riders and almost 6o lakh registered users on its platform.
The cabinet on January 15 last year approved “Ride-sharing Service Guidelines 2017” validating the operations of app-based transport services, which is becoming popular in Dhaka.
