Our Founder's Story: Jigme Thinley Yoezer Rinzin

At Druk Ride, our journey began with a simple yet profound realization by our founder, Jigme Thinley Yoezer Rinzin. Born and raised in Bhutan, Jigme had always been deeply passionate about improving the lives of his fellow citizens, particularly those in remote villages who faced unique challenges in accessing essential services.

In the vibrant streets of Thimphu, Bhutan, Jigme Thinley Yoezer Rinzin, our founder, found himself immersed in the rhythm of daily life. Amidst the cheerful exchanges with passersby, a familiar face caught his attention – an old friend, with whom he shared many fond memories.As they exchanged greetings and caught up on each other's lives, Jigme's friend suddenly remembered an impending task – the need to book a bus ticket for an upcoming journey. 

With a furrowed brow, his friend expressed the frustration of having to embark on a tedious journey to the bus station just to secure a simple ticket, it struck him just how inconvenient and time-consuming the process of booking a bus ticket could be, especially for those living in rural areas. His friend, like many others, had to interrupt their daily routines and travel all the way to the nearest town or bus station just to secure a seat on a bus.

This realization sparked a fire in Jigme – a determination to address this problem and make a meaningful difference in the lives of his fellow Bhutanese citizens. He saw an opportunity to leverage technology to streamline the process of booking bus tickets and provide a more convenient solution for people across the country, regardless of their location.Driven by his vision of improving accessibility and enhancing convenience, Jigme embarked on a journey to found Druk Ride. With a clear mission in mind – to revolutionize the way people travel in Bhutan – he assembled a team of like-minded individuals who shared his passion for innovation and social impact.Through tireless dedication and unwavering commitment, Jigme and his team developed the Druk Ride platform, a user-friendly mobile application that allows users to book bus tickets and taxis with ease. By eliminating the need for physical visits to bus stations and providing on-demand transportation services, Druk Ride has transformed the way people travel in Bhutan, making it easier, safer, and more accessible for everyone. And so, fueled by determination and guided by compassion, Jigme embarked on a journey of discovery and innovation. In the year 2016, Druk Ride was born – a beacon of convenience and accessibility in the world of transportation in Bhutan.
