Global technology giant,Yandex is set to launch its taxi service in the Ghanaian market called Yango.
Yango is a technological ride-hailing App by one of Europe’s biggest tech companies-Yandex which operates in over 300 cities across 15 countries in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Unlike competitors, Yango has its own mapping and navigation system. This minimizes driver pick-up time and arrival at destinations thereby decreasing net cost of ride dramatically.
It is anticipated that fares on Yango will reduce drastically.
A key benefit that stands out in Yango’s service will be that drivers may not have to pay any commission at the start.
The entry of Yango will put local taxi hailing apps under pressure on its home turf due to its competitive advantage.
