Yango, an international ride-hailing app, has launched in Dubai, marking the company’s first foray into the GCC market. The service received all necessary permissions and was approved by local authorities to operate in the emirate. The service already operates in more than 20 countries across Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
To hail a car, users must download the app, launch it, and select their destination. Using the customer’s geolocation, the service will alert the nearest drivers. Users have a choice of two tiers to choose from for their rides: Comfort, granting them pick-ups in premium cars, such as Lexus ES, and Premier tariff, ensuring users luxury cars, including GMC Yukon, Cadillac Escalade, Mercedes S-class, BMW 7 Series cars as well as promising a supreme level of customer service for a slightly higher price. Vehicles from both tiers will provide phone-charging cables and bottles of water, while the Premier tier also offers passengers dates.
Unlike other players, Yango provides quick car dispatches thanks to its exclusively developed technologies that help reduce the time a driver spends seeking a customer or driving to the customer’s destination. While drivers can only take one ride at a time, if a customer hails a car near the destination where the driver will be concluding their ride, they can schedule to pick up the new customer in advance. This will decrease empty-car mileage and reduce traffic congestion in the city.
A ride from ‘One&Only Royal Mirage’ in Marina to Mall of the Emirates will cost approximately AED 52.5 in the Comfort tier and AED 56 in the Premier tier. In contrast, a ride from La Mer Beach to Dubai Mall will cost around AED 39 in Comfort and AED 42 in Premier.
The Yango app is free for download in many languages, including Arabic and English, from the App Store and Google Play.
