After the launching in Bucharest in June 2019, the e-hailing app Yango has introduced the new Comfort service. In addition to Economy, this new service in the Yango app allows users to order a ride with better equipped cars, carefully selected by the company, at the most affordable price in this category in Bucharest.
„We see very high demand for rides via Yango in Bucharest, much higher than we initially expected in the first operating month. In this period of time we carefully examined all the feedback and needs from our users and decided to launch the new Comfort category, a service we successfully developed in most of our markets, showing commitment to our Romanian customers. This way, our users can be sure they will get a comfortable ride in a better category car, for a slightly higher but still affordable. On the other hand, drivers who have very well-maintained cars and are expressing good manners towards the passengers stand a chance to earn even more with Yango starting today”, said Musheg Sahakian, Global Expansion Director of Yango.
Part of the vehicles to be included in the new Comfort service are: Citroen C-Elysee, Volkswagen Passat, Skoda Superb as well as Mercedes C-Klasse and BMW 3 series. These cars and their drivers have been vetted manually by Yango and its partners in Romania to ensure their best condition for the Comfort service.
Rides available within the new Comfort category start from 10 lei. This includes delivery of the car, 5 km and 10 mins of the ride. For example, a ride from Otopeni airport to Piata Victoriei costs about 31 lei, from Pipera to Piata Dorobanti – 12 lei.
„Our customers have different needs when they take a ride with us, so we are gradually increasing the range of choice for our users. With the new Comfort option, Yango offers the lowest fares in the city for this category of ride experience. We will continue to further explore what our users need, bringing new services, features and promo activities to Bucharest” said Andrei Voicu, Regional Director of Yango in Romania and Moldova.
Despite the introduction of the Comfort service, customers of Yango can enjoy Economy tariff ride. In June, Yango started with its Economy option with ride fares starting from as low as 5 lei with a discount. Currently rides can be paid exclusively with a bank card linked to the app.
