The head of Guild of the taxi of the Moscow Chamber of Commerce and Industry Bogdan Konoshenko told Business FM that there is to the capital taxi Bogdan Konoshenko today. Photo: MTPP As it is necessary to fight against illegal carriers and why legal status of aggregators is still not defined. In Moscow many use the taxi nearly daily because it is convenient. Reasonable prices, and time of giving of the car at the order through mobile applications was reduced to several minutes. The recent research McKinsey shows that annually in Moscow over 200 million trips to the taxi are made, these are about 3,5% of the total number of trips on all means of transport. The average cost of kilometer of a trip in relation to the average salary is only 0,05%. Below only in Singapore and Shanghai. How it was succeeded to make available the capital taxi? Bogdan Konoshenko: This adoption of law of the 22nd on the taxi. These are more than 500 parking which in the downtown are free of charge made for the taxi. It and subsidies which the city allocates for the taxi companies and individual entrepreneurs on compensation of a part of an interest rate for leasing.

But from time to time the prices of trips jump up by two-three times. It is normal? Bogdan Konoshenko: There are some market situations when demand exceeds the offer. And in such situation aggregators, naturally, raise the prices. Another story altogether, when there is some emergency. On this case the Government of Moscow with several large taxi companies concluded the agreement that up to 30% of the park within there 20 minutes we will have to give to that point which the headquarters on elimination of emergency situation call. It is made to bring down desire of illegal carriers to earn where there was a critical situation. Whether it is necessary to limit increase in prices, so far as concerns the increased demand for trips? Bogdan Konoshenko: The idea of price control in itself to trips to the taxi was repeatedly discussed by members of our committee.
