Russia’s biggest taxi online order company of Yandex Taxi plans to enter the Georgian market.
The company also plans to take efforts in the Baltic countries and Kazakhstan, Yandex Taxi director general Tigran Khudaverdian told the Vedomosti.
“We established our branches in Minsk this spring and in Armenia this July. We also plan to enter Kazakhstan, Georgia and the Baltic countries – Riga and Tallinn”, Khudaverdian said.
Yandex Taxi may even buy other components of taxi aggregates, but not in the near future, Khudaverdian said.
“At this stage, we enter those countries, where similar players do not operate or there are extremely small or big companies, but they apply a slightly different business model, while it is our principle not to work with taxi drivers directly. We only cooperate with vehicle fleets”, the Yandex Taxi head noted.
Yandex Taxi has been cooperating with major taxi companies. The service determines the customer’s location in automatic regime and sends the closest taxi to the customer. The system provides such services as the selection of price category – Econom, Standard and Business categories, as well as nonsmoking driver, child’s seat, air-conditioner and so on.
The taxi reaches the customer in 10 minutes after making an order.
