Yota Digital Talks: Digital transpotation services and their influence on the city (DIGITAL AUGUST)

Executives of taxi apps, ridesharing services and personal drivers services will discuss the changes in the urban transport market

Online-applications that make trips from point A to point B comfortable and profitable are slowly replacing traditional means of transportation, both private and public. For some citizens these services became an effective alternative, but for employees of the traditional transportation services they become a dangerous rival. Taxi-drivers in Paris go on strike against Uber and paralyze half of the city, at the same time Russian authorities prohibit “private taxis”.

How do ridesharing services, taxi-services and personal driver services work under such conditions? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the online apps? Representatives of Yandex.Taxi, BlaBlaCar, Wheely, Uber and Aerotaxi will discuss these questions.
