The Federal Antimonopoly service has not found a collusion of taxi companies at the prices before the New year, said at a briefing on Thursday, the head of service Igor Artemyev.

«Most of the companies, or even all, provided information on our queries, analysis of this information at the preliminary stage showed that there were no irregularities,» — said Artemyev.

He added that «in General, it was clear, as competition in this market is so high that if you start to vandalize and bully prices, the consumer responds with their feet».

«The only thing that bothered us is the collusion of big companies, but we found no collusion, I hope that you will not find, it would be a very bad example and would show us that the market is capable of monopolization», — added the head of FAS.

Artemyev said that in Moscow there are more than 20 taxi companies and «achieved a good result for the consumer is that the price of a taxi fell.»
