Moscow’s government is seeking to rein in a disorderly taxi market worth about $1 billion a year, according to Yandex.Taxi, owned by Russia’s largest search engine. With increased oversight, unlicensed drivers piloting anything from luxury sedans to beat-up Ladas have fallen to some 30 percent of Moscow cabbies, the city says, down from 90 percent three years ago.
