The Yandex.Taxi team plans to launch an electric scooter rental service in the summer of 2021. This was reported by Kommersant, citing several sources at once.
The rental of electric scooters will be organized on a large scale. It is planned to launch several thousand scooters at once in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kazan.
The new function for electric scooter rental will be built into the already familiar applications of the ecosystem – Yandex.Drive and Yandex.Go. Applications will allow you to create complex routes within which you can use taxis, car sharing and kicksharing.
A couple of weeks ago, an electric scooter rental service under the auspices of the VKontakte social network began operating in St. Petersburg, Samara and Rostov-on-Don.
