For a student like me and many others out there, Tootle is just the right thing. For once, we would love not to ride in the over-crowded tempos and the over-priced taxis and simply reach our destination on time. Had a great ride the other day and the app seems perfect. I really hope this works out. Good luck Tootles!
I was late for office and badly needed a ride. One of my friends had suggested tootle, a ride sharing service in a minimal charge. I thought about giving it a try and this turned out to be a fun ride. I reached my office 10 minutes earlier than usual. I highly recommend tootle to all my friends and family.
Easy, Fast, Safe and effective. Definitely the best way to move around Kathmandu. Drivers are really friendly !
great idea ... works well :)

For the driver, yes you will have to turn on your Mobile data throughout the ride.
PS: The data cost for using our application for one particular ride of about 5 km is Rs 1. Make sure you have turned off other application from using your mobile data at that particular time. You can change this in your settings.
As a partner, it is a must for you to turn on your GPS at all times.
As a client, you may or may not turn on your GPS all the time. If you turn on your GPS when you are in the process of requesting a ride, your current location will be your default pickup location. If you don’t, you have to enter it manually
There are two ways clients can make payment for their ride.
1. Cash- The client simply pays in cash to the driver, as the ride is complete.
2. Tootle Balance- The client can use Tootle Balance to pay for the ride. However, the balance should have enough money else the booking wont be allowed.
Both the option is available before confirming the booking. The payment method that is convenient to the client can be chosen at the time of confirming the ride request.
Also, Tootle partner can see the payment method chosen by the client before accepting the ride request.
For now, as soon as the client signs up with Tootle, we provide them with a free ride of Rs 200 as a bonus which expires after 1 month of the registration. After the amount is finished, the client will have to topup Tootle Balance via esewa or pay in cash.
You can topup your Tootle Balance with money using esewa service.
