inDriver was founded in Yakutsk, the coldest city in the coldest country in the world - Russia. In 2012, during the New Year's holidays, the temperature dropped below -45C. And during that time taxi services have raised fares by one and a half times in one day. Then, on the wave of people's indignation, college students have created a group "Independent drivers, indrivers" in the social network "VKontakte". Participants of the group published where they wanted to go and the price that they were willing to pay for the trip, drivers contacted customers and carried out orders. In just six months, 50,000 participants joined the group, and it continued to grow. A year later the group became part of the company "Sinet", which developed on its basis a high-tech peer-to-peer transportation service. This is how inDriver was born, from the first day opposing the dictates of centralized services and taxi services.
Prices for trips are set in the course of express trades between drivers and passengers, without using opaque, closed algorithms prone to price manipulation.
Payments are made directly from passengers to drivers through cash and non-cash payments. This allows you to reduce costs and maintain lower tariffs in the system.
The created model of direct deals turned out to be so strong that the main booster of the company's growth was word-of-mouth marketing. Users value the service so much, they are ready to support it, they spread the news about it to their social environment, friends, colleagues, relatives, which also became part of the peer-to-peer service model.
inDriver works not only in large cities with a highly competitive environment, but also in small settlements with population of 7-10 thousand, often with a weak Internet and without maps of the settlement.
All this allowed experienced and motivated team inDriver to develop service from the group in social networks to the most efficient ride-hailing company in the Russian / CIS region, with key indicators comparable to the leading international taxi companies
The company continues to scale internationally and connects directly millions of people around the world, saving them considerable funds, not allowing them to be exploited and manipulated, contributing to their well-being, freedom, and, eventually, happiness. This is the mission of inDriver.
