How the Moscow authorities are putting things in order in the private transport market
The introduction of the KIS ART system is in being implemented for the second month in Moscow. It is aimed to put order in the industry, whitewash the market and improve the safety of travel by this type of transport. "Izvestia newspaper has asked the experts to summarize the results of the launch of the project and give their opinion on whether to adopt this experience in other regions.
As Izvestia newspaper wrote earlier, the KIS ART system has started its operation in Moscow and the Moscow region on August 14th. Its development began back in the summer of 2019 and lasted for three years. The system introduces digital passports (ID) for each driver, so those taxi drivers who have not obtained a digital passport, cannot receive any orders.
The system is being implemented in two stages. "First, the driver must be registered on the state services website, which allows you to exclude drivers with fake and expired licenses, as well as citizens who have not undergone medical examination. The next step is registration in the KIS ART system, which generates IDs in an end-to-end manner," explained Dmitry Pronin on the air of the Govorit Moskva radio station.
The system should be connected not only to the drivers, but also to the taxi companies and all the aggregators operating in the Russian capital, which exchange data with the KIS ART system. taxi companies. This allows all the market participants to monitor who is behind the wheel and be sure that drivers have all the the necessary documents, undergo prompt medical examinations, as well as that only technically serviceable cars are on the line.
Also, the capabilities of KIS ART allow to block digital profilesof drivers with bad reputations and those who do not yet have three years of driving experience, who have not obtained a permit to carry passengers, issued in Moscow or Moscow region.
Since general information is collected online, it will be impossible to overwork, and, accordingly, the accident rate for this category of transport will decrease. "Each driver will have a personal working number, so the aggregator will be able to track the driver and not let him overwork. The driver will be able to work from 7 to 12 hours a day," explained Dmitry Pronin.
