Pathao has brought down its commission on bike rides to allow riders to earn up to 90 percent of the trip fare.
Effective November 25, Pathao will be taking 10 percent of the bike ride fare during peak hours (8 AM to 11 AM and 5 PM to 8 PM) and up to 15 percent during the off-peak hours.
This is the lowest rate of commission charged by any platform in Bangladesh, according to a press release.
Previously, Pathao charged 15 percent as commission on two-wheel rides in Dhaka and 25 percent in Chattogram and Sylhet. The new commission structure is applicable nationwide.
This change will contribute to making the bike ride-sharing service even more reliable for users, especially during peak hours, as they will now enjoy the greater availability of riders looking to maximise their earnings.
CEO and managing director of Pathao Fahim Ahmed said Pathao has created opportunities for the aspiring riders to earn more and improve their lives.
“With this commission cut, we wanted to recognise the largest and most loyal pool of riders at Pathao, who are ensuring a safe and reliable experience for our users," he said.
