KATHMANDU: inDrive, a leading platform for mobility and urban services, has officially launched its service in Nepal.

After offering services for approximately three years, inDrive has now officially registered with the company and commenced its services. To ensure equitable and affordable travel for both drivers and passengers in Nepal, inDrive has implemented a commission fee of up to 10% for drivers.

inDrive distinguishes itself from traditional ride-hailing apps by adopting a people-to-people model and a human-centric approach. Unlike algorithms determining prices, inDrive introduces a unique feature that allows passengers and drivers to negotiate ride fares freely within the app. Passengers have the freedom to propose fares for their rides and negotiate directly with drivers based on factors such as vehicle model, driver rating, and estimated arrival time.

Pavit Nanda Anand, inDrive's Asia Pacific Communications Lead, said, "inDrive's mission as a brand is to challenge injustice and make the world a better place for over 1 billion people. We are excited to announce that inDrive has now officially launched in Nepal. inDrive empowers people around the world with the freedom of choice." She added, "The Nepali market is very important to us and we are confident that our services will bring innovation and employment to the Nepali market."

Similarly, inDrive Nepal Director Rita Pokhrel said, "The official launch of inDrive in Nepal marks the beginning of a new chapter in the ride-hailing industry here. We are excited to announce that inDrive is now officially launched in Nepal.” According to Pokhrel, inDrive has started service in Kathmandu as well as Pokhara and Dharan. The company also stated that they will soon start services in various regions of Nepal as well as with courier and cargo services.



Pokhrel concluded her statement by highlighting the seamless payment experience for users, courtesy of their payment partner, IME.
