Meet inDrive: #FunFact

Did you know that inDrive started as a small community of independent drivers in Yakutsk? According to the inDrive's ex-CTO:

"As far as cab services were concerned, it was difficult and expensive to get a ride in Yakutsk before inDrive made its appearance on the scene. Things worked the old-fashioned way, and you had to call first and book a vehicle via the dispatcher and then wait a long time for the driver to arrive.
In the winter of 2012, several smart guys created a Vkontakte group called Community of Independent Drivers of Yakutsk. In it, you could indicate that you needed to go from point A to point B and leave your phone number. Then a caring driver who just happened to be headed that way might call you to arrange a ride."

From a small community of independent drivers to one of the top ride hailing services known globally, inDrive has come a long way! has shared some amazing content via the HackerNoon Business Blogging Program, and has generated 3 months 9 days 6 hours and 36 minutes of reading time!
