A new ride sharing platform JauGuru has been launched. The service was unveiled at a recent ceremony held at Hotel Radisson in Kathmandu.
The startup ride-hailing platform has been backed up by the investment of three Nepali young entrepreneurs Indrahang Lingden, Khusi Limbu, and Diwakar Aryal. At the launch event, the company’s chairperson Indrahang Lingden said JauGuru will make daily commutes easier for people.
The company will compete with many established ride-hailing services. And it remains to be seen how the service will evolve in the market. For now, Jau Guru is available within the Kathmandu Valley only but there are plans to expand the service to other areas soon.
JauGuru features location share, GPS tracking, and online transactions via Khalti. Customers can also expect 24-hour service from the fresh ride-sharing service.
Easy rider registration, zero charges for picking up passengers, insurance for both riders and passengers, commission for a rider or anyone for referrals, etc. are attractive features in JauGuru’s favor. In addition, the JauGuru app has police contact (100) and a Save our Soul (SOS) service for the protection of both customers and riders.
