Sweet Wholesome Riders
A pathao rider today along the journey explained his whole life journey,the struggle such middle class like his and ours have to face.— Dinesh Pradhan (@_DPbro) October 6, 2020
What an inspirational story that man had to tell.I was so impressed by it.
I will pen it down today as a story.
My Pathao rider showed up on time, asked “सन्चै हुनुहुन्छ?” then stayed silent the whole time except for occasional “sorry” for things that were clearly not his fault, and said “Have very good day” after dropping me off.— Meera 🦚 (@MainaliMadam) November 20, 2019
I’m aiming for a February wedding.
The bar is on the floor
cant forget this one time a pathao rider told me "hajur ta shrinkhala khatiwada jastai slim hunudo raicha" yes bby thanks for noticing u beautiful honest man— samosachat (@_sanssx) October 23, 2020
Would have missed my appointment, had Tootle not been there. I made the rider wait 20 mins, but still no complaints from him. #Tootle— Prabesh Acharya (@111prabes) July 4, 2017
The Rough Riders
Whenever i'm on a pathao ride i just hope the rider's karma is good. Like I dont wanna die cause your karma is bad. Uh uh, not today.— Captive Grand (@CAPTVXX) December 13, 2020
My pathao rider driving the scooter like it's sports bike and I feel like we're on a race with the grim reaper— Suzata 🌻 (@nananasuzyQ) February 24, 2020
Had to go to Police Station and stand as witness because the Pathao rider I rode with today has such a rough riding that he hit a car.— Swapnil 😇 (@swwwwwapnil) September 11, 2019
His riding was insane and was thinking यसले आज कता लागेर जोत्ने हो the moment I hopped in, and he did exactly that.
Do you tell your tootle rider to go slow or just pray for your life😵— Kushal (@kushal_flash) October 20, 2020
I ain't gotta big boobs dude— flying chappal 🐺 (@RojanRijal) January 20, 2020
why you keep speeding up and decelerating every fucking second 😠 I felt like I'm in Columbus ( bhrikuti mandap ko )
Worst tootle rider I've ever been with
The Blessed Quiet Riders
I can’t multitask yar! I can’t listen to my playlist and communicate with my pathao rider at the same time!— 𝘾𝙃𝙐𝘽𝙎 (@meaanngirl) April 4, 2019
*pathao rider yess https://t.co/PCoACfpBfy— jindagani (@darpanchayaa) July 20, 2020
The Annoying Talkative Riders
Some Pathao guys can get really annoying, like why on earth do they need to know about my college, birth date and so on?— Jo (@jyoini) June 17, 2019
And why are they are on the Pathao service if they even don't know the way to Kalanki?
Next time tell them "You are a pathao rider not Rishi Dhamala "🙃— Sarvatapana🇳🇵 (@EarthlingRaul) June 17, 2019
this tootle rider out here asking what I want to do wit my life like mf u worried about the wrong path— Bipin P (@biipiinho) January 23, 2020
The pathao rider "Do you have religion"— shri⁷ Prod.SUGA (@seokjinshri2) November 20, 2020
Me: "On papers its hindu but I'm an atheists"
Him : "We all have to respect all religion all God's are same blablablabla"
Me in my head *I SAID IM AN ATHEISTS STOP TALKING ABOUT RELIGION"
The Late-Latif Riders
Booked a PATHAO ride, rider called and said "let's play Luka Mari". Been 15 mins and I'm still looking for him.— AM_OK (@amoghparajuli) March 1, 2020
When your tootle rider says “10 minute ma location ma aai pugchhu” but it’s already been 11 minutes. https://t.co/QB7SNrDTqC— Meera 🦚 (@MainaliMadam) March 22, 2020
The moment when you could reach home by the time your Tootle rider gets to the pickup point.— Sachi Mulmi (@sachimulmi) January 15, 2020
The Clever Rider
take this:— LMB (@lilmuzibhatt) November 22, 2020
u book a pathao ride
meets you at the pickup point and offers you to take you on a ride for cheaper if you cancel the ride
u cancel the ride
get a cheaper ride
rider gobbles all the money
pathao doesn’t know shit
Me: We got 30 minutes to reach the destination, please ignore all possible roads which may have traffic jam.— Nikesh Balami (@nikeshbalami) June 17, 2019
Pathao Rider: No worries bro.
(Next I remember is, we were there at venue 15 minutes earlier)
Lesson: Kathmandu is full of gullys, all you need is a clever rider.

The Weird Encounters
what’s your wildest tootle/pathao ride experience? once, my rider parked by the side of the road and told me he’d be back asap after asking if i was okay with waiting for a short while. tell me why he pulls up 15 minutes later with a haircut— *ﾟ･ﾟ｡. ミ☆ jyoti ☆彡.*｡. (@jyotiwashere) November 17, 2020
Saw that my Pathao rider was considerably elder, I instinctively join my palms and murmur 'Namaste'. What even! #sanskar— Sachi Mulmi (@sachimulmi) June 17, 2019
