The Lalitpur Metropolitan City is bringing disabled-friendly cab into use. In order to facilitate the mobility of the people with physical disability, the metropolis has signed a tripartite agreement with Swabalamban Jeewan Paddati Kendra Lalitpur and Swabalamban Jeewan Paddati Kendra Eureka Japan on Monday.

Lalitpur metropolis mayor Chiribabu Maharjan shared that a disable-friendly cab is to be operated for the convenience of people with disabilities. “As disable people are struggling to travel in vehicles, we are bringing into use a cab within the metropolis to facilitate their movement,” he added.

The disable people can get into the cab with their wheel chairs. It has a capacity to accommodate four wheelchair users and their aids.

The metropolis said it would bear all the expenses involved on driver salary, fuel, maintenance and transport tax. The Swabalamban Jeewan Paddati Kendra Lalitpur would take the decision on where and how to operate the cab.
