Meet Yango

Yango is a ride-hailing service that gets people where they want to go quickly, safely, and affordably. It operates in over 300 large cities across 15 countries around the world — in some of these places, it’s known as Yandex.Taxi.

The service was launched in 2011 by Yandex, one of Europe’s largest tech companies building smart products and services powered by machine learning. Yango brings this technological prowess to the market, using its own mapping and routing systems to locate and transport passengers. This approach helps you get the most out of your passenger experience.

Some 900,000 drivers are connected to Yango worldwide, and 36 million people have used the service since its launch. The company celebrated its one billionth ride in September 2018. If you’re interested in Yango’s financials, you can read more here.

Intelligent ride-hailing

We use Yandex mapping, routing, and navigation technologies, as well as a machine learning-based order distribution system. This combination shortens the time drivers spend looking for passengers, picking them up, and dropping them off. By saving time on each leg, our technology reduces overall ride costs.

Beyond competitive prices, our app is packed with features for drivers and passengers alike:
● request several cars on a single phone
● book a ride with multiple destinations
● find alternative pickup points to reach your destination faster and at a lower price
● upfront fare prices that stay the same even if you get stuck in traffic
● share your route with friends
Feature availability depends on which country you’re located in.

We track the quality of our service using customer feedback. Drivers with high ratings get orders first, and drivers with ratings below the minimum threshold are automatically blocked from receiving orders.

Self-driving car

We launched our autonomous car project in 2017 powered by Yandex’s own mapping, navigation, computer vision, and object recognition technologies. The platform is still under development, but it's poised to revolutionize how people commute by letting vehicles operate driver-free.

At the end of 2018, we launched our autonomous ride-hailing service in two innovative tech cities in Russia (Innopolis and Skolkovo) to give passengers rides without anyone ever getting behind the wheel.

Today, our self-driving car is being tested in Moscow and Tel Aviv, and was recently demoed in Las Vegas at CES 2019, the world's biggest consumer electronics show.
