Taxi Ride dropped almost half in price…

Coffee-iconOver the last year, riding in a taxi has almost dropped in half. This is in Moscow, Russia and I use for many times, a taxi is used to go to and from the airport or train station…

I remember one to two years ago paying 1600 rubles from the train station and or from the airport. The trip this last time cost 900 rubles. That is a huge drop in prices and very welcomed, for us people on a budget…

I hear now that they have what is called a short ride fee and 99 rubles gets you most anywhere within reason. I am sure that is inner city, but still that makes it great for many trips that use to cost 400 to 500 rubles…

The fare, which was introduced by Yandex Cab for short rides, includes two minutes of waiting time, a five-minute trip and two kilometers. Each additional minute and each additional kilometer will cost nine rubles. For example, if the customer travels five kilometers in seven minutes, he will be charged about $2.20…

Yes, Svetochka and I use Yandex Taxi all the time now and it just works for us…
