“Yandex Go” launched joint trips for users from Moscow and St. Petersburg

Yandex Go users with similar routes will be able to make joint taxi rides in Moscow and St. Petersburg. At the same time, the duration of the trip will increase by an average of ten minutes, but its cost will become more profitable, the company noted.

“Now taxi rides in Moscow and St. Petersburg can be shared with a fellow traveler if you select the “Together” option in the Yandex Go application,” the message says (quoted by RIA Novosti). The company clarified that only two fellow travelers can be in the car at the same time.

A new service option may appear in the “Economy” tariff, when the number of people who want to use taxi services is much greater than the number of free cars. Thus, the probability of finding another person for a joint trip increases, representatives of Yandex Go say. “The cost will be more profitable than in the Economy tariff, and the travel time will increase by an average of ten minutes,” the company said.

Since November 8, Yandex Go users have been able to order taxi rides from one city to another at the new Intercity tariff. At the first stage, the directions Rostov-on-Don-Shakhty, Ufa-Sterlitamak, Anapa-Novorossiysk and Ussuriysk-Vladivostok are available for travel. As a representative of the company clarified to Kommersant, over time, the geography of the tariff will expand.

About what services taxi services offer to expand the audience – in the material “Kommersant” “Drivers will add routes.”
