Representatives Yandex.Taxi in the commentary to the note Yavorska reported on the conducted experiment with an automatic algorithm, which takes into account such factors as the frequency of use of the service, the number of drivers in the area and the presence of traffic jams. At the same time, it is emphasized that the pricing model does not depend on the model of the device or method of payment. To this comment, Yavorskaya was skeptical, since she uses Yandex.Taxi more often, and the price was higher for her. Representatives of the same Yandex.Taxi insist in the comments in social networks and journalists that the experimental algorithm is based on three of these factors, and traffic jams and the availability of free drivers in large cities like Moscow can change so often that will lead to different prices, even if "two users are Near and almost simultaneously make out trips on the same route.
