Now 40,000 taxis are operating in Moscow, which is transferring the city to a qualitatively new level, such as it currently has a New York, which occupies one of the leading places in the world to provide passenger transportation services. According to Sobyanin, literally 2 years ago, when the new taxi law entered into force in Russia, no one could have imagined that 40 thousand taxis could appear in Moscow. Now the residents of the capital have become even more comfortable to move around the city.“During this time, the number of illegal immigrants, bombed, which dominated the streets of the city, became multiple less, and a taxi – more often,” Sobyanin emphasized.
The mayor of the capital handed the certificate and keys to the new car as a taxi driver, after which he asked him if he was doing well with the car.“I’m at VDNH, I’m going to the city subbotnik. Bring?”The mayor asked.
The Moscow mayor went to the VVC by taxi, and not in a service car. True, it is not reported whether Sobyanin paid for his trip. Currently, in Moscow, permits for taxi activity are issued absolutely free, which greatly simplified the procedure. It has been operating for 5 years in the city and region. To date, in Moscow, more than sevenists and about 13 thousand individual entrepreneurs are engaged in taxi transportation in Moscow. At the same time, the plans of the Moscow leadership bring the number of legal taxis to 55 thousand units. By the way, since the summer of last year, it was decided to issue permission exclusively for yellow cars. However, subject to an earlier period of issuing permission, the machine will not have to be repainted yellow.
