Transport agencies officials to use taxi instead of company cars
Officials of the transport agencies of Moscow may be invited to use taxi instead of company cars. This is reported by Vice-Mayor of Moscow on Transport and Development of Road Infrastructure Maksim Liksutov.
As Liksutov told RBC, the introduction of such measures is associated with the reduction in the cost of transport services for officials. Talks with taxi companies are already under way, the vice-mayor said. According to him, the use of taxi instead of official transport will reduce the cost of transportation services for employees by 20-30%.
To recall, in June 2017, the Ministry of Finance of Russia announced the introduction of similar measures. According to Deputy Minister Tatyana Nesterenko, the department had saved 11 million rubles ($191.8 thousand) using the services of Uber and Yandex.Taxi. Although, Nesterenko did not specify the period, over which this amount had been saved. The surplus funds resulting from the introduction of innovation were additionally directed to the organization of the Moscow financial forum.
On September 21, kingpin Vladimir Vagin, aka Vagon, hanged himself. Two years earlier another thief in law Max Pioner also committed suicide. Vagon's lawyer does not believe in the version of suicide and intends to apply for a forensic medical examination.
