The coverage includes out-patient expenses, hospitalization expenses, permanent disability, and accidental demise up to Tk100,000.

Pathao, Bangladesh’s largest ride-sharing platform has launched an insurance program in partnership with Green Delta Insurance, to ensure a safe commuting experience for all users, riders and captains on the National Road Safety Day.

Under the insurance policy provided by Green Delta Insurance, Pathao users, riders and captains will receive coverage in case of accidents while using Pathao rides, according to a press release.

The coverage includes out-patient expenses, hospitalization expenses, permanent disability, and accidental demise up to Tk100,000. 

Pathao already offers several features to ensure safety, such as GPS tracking, necessary information of passengers, riders and captains, VoIP call, emergency button to directly connect with National Emergency service, 24-hour in-app support of dedicated Incident Response Team (IRT), trusted contacts that help passengers, riders and captains to share their trip details with their family and friends while they are on the move so that they feel safe and connected.

Commenting on the launch Fahim Ahmed, President of Pathao said: “This announcement emphasizes our commitment to protect our users, riders, and captains, and provides them peace of mind as well as financial support. As ridesharing becomes more popular and is embraced by even customers, this insurance policy will be a beacon for the rest of the industry.”
