"We are aware of the situation in Penza and we help our partners – taxi companies – to minimize losses from the noncompetitive actions," the representative of the Yandex.Taxi press service Daria Trosnikova told PenzaNews.
She noted that Yandex.Taxi collaborates only with legal taxi companies and dispatching services that treat passengers’ transportation as a long-term business but not as an immediate profit.
"They have all required licenses and permissions for transportation, they monitor the state, the working order and the appearance of their cars, provide safety and comfort to passengers, and adhere to a transparent tariff policy. Unfortunately, not everyone wants the taxi market to become civilized, and the taxi – affordable to all residents. Penza is not the first city where our partners face resistance," the interlocutor explained.
According to her, the Yandex.Taxi partner company in Penza already turned to the law enforcement authorities in connection with the incident.
