inDriver began life in 2012 in Yakutsk, one of the coldest cities in the world. The service grew from a group founded by local students called Independent Drivers (indrivers). It was set up on VKontakte, a social media site, in response to a sharp increase in taxi prices when outside temperatures dropped. The group members published where they wanted to go and the price they were prepared to pay, then the drivers contacted these customers and completed the orders. A year later, the group moved to the "Sinet" company, which created a high-tech peer-to-peer transportation service using this concept.
This is how inDriver was set up as a company in 2013. From the very first day of its existence, it had one ultimate goal: to provide users with a viable alternative to other taxi aggregators with inflexible pricing policies. The service operates based on a unique peer-to-peer pricing principle, which allows passengers and drivers to directly negotiate a fare. This ensures that the terms are as transparent and fair as possible for both parties.
Today, inDriver is the world's fastest-growing online ride-hailing service. The app has been downloaded more than 120 million times. The service is available in 600+ cities in 42 countries. inDriver is headquartered in Mountain View, California.
In early 2021, inDriver achieved ‘unicorn’ status after closing a $150m investment round with Insight Partners, General Catalyst, and Bond Capital, which valued the company at $1.23 billion.
inDriver is committed to implementing the principle of freedom of choice in other areas of its business as well. The app can also be used to find couriers, DIY specialists, designers and tutors, or to take long-distance trips, book freight shipments, or to request other everyday services (the inDriver.Services vertical is being expanded gradually across all the company’s markets).
inDriver gives freedom of choice to 0 million people around the world
inDriver operates in the largest metropolitan areas with the highest levels of competition. It also operates in small villages with a population of between just seven to eight-thousand residents (which often have very weak internet connections and no maps). We are therefore proven to be able to successfully adapt to the needs of residents of any village, town or city. Today, inDriver is one of the top-5 international passenger-services worldwide. The company continues its active international expansion, providing an increasing number of users with the opportunity to determine their optimal travel terms and protecting them from price manipulation.

All ride terms are determined during instant transactions between drivers and passengers. This is done without using any ambiguous, closed algorithms subject to price manipulation.
Cost is always lower
The cost of rides with inDriver is always lower. This is because the real-time-deals model helps us set optimal costs for passengers and drivers every single second.
Passengers pay drivers directly (by cash or by card). This allows us to reduce costs and maintain lower fares in the system.
We improve ourselves to improve the world!
One of the main corporate values of Sinet Team is caring for others. Back in 2012, this value and the team’s mission to keep improving the world took shape in the form of a social project that changed and continues to change the lives of many Yakutian children (as well as many children around the world) for the better.
BeginIT is a social educational project whose goal is to provide career guidance in the field of new technologies to capable children from orphanages, boarding schools for orphans and rural schools.
