A division of the federal taxi operator is opened in Ufa. In total complexity the network “Taxi 24” is present in 16 Russian regions, including Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Nizhniy Novgorod, Samara and Novosibirsk.
“The work of “Taxi 24” is organized in accordance with all requirements of federal legislation” – general director of “Taxi 24” division Leonid Kostenko reported – “We use only new cars “Lifan Solano”. All cars have the same color and equipped with air conditioning, taximeters, baby chairs and satellite navigation”.
The base of a new operator is located on the territory of Ufa and at present time its fleet numbers 138 cars. Other 40 cars will be purchased already in July.
“We estimate appearance of a new federal taxi operator in the Republic as a very positive signal” – the deputy chairman of the state committee RB for transport and road economy Andre Bykovsky reported to “Bashinform” – “Such competition will help people to choose the best variant of taxi. I hope that other serious operators will start working here soon and illegal taxi drivers will gradually leave this market”.
