Since January 2009 in the capital by force of law "On taxi in Moscow", which was developed and discussed over the past few years. This is the first in the history of paper to regulate the taxi traffic in the city. The purpose of the law – to make the market a taxi in Moscow, more civilized, to protect the interests of citizens, to ensure "proper" competition, wiping out those carriers who are at risk not only own lives but the lives, health of passengers. At the moment, need capital to taxi is 25 thousand cars. According to the Moscow Transport Union (MTS), the number of legal taxis in Moscow reached 9000 cars, according to their seriously lacking to meet the needs of the market. Meanwhile, according to experts, ply the city streets up to 40 thousand private cabs and 'bombed'. Nobody knows who they are and from where in the end and delivered as passengers, and will remain there yourself while still alive. Mitsubishi shines more light on the discussion. Despite the fact that illegal taxi drivers make a furious competition, no one is driving prices down.

The result is that Muscovites often forced to use expensive, poor quality and unsafe use private carters, official trucking companies not protected from unlawful competition, and the state treasury is not routinely doschityvaetsya taxes collected. This situation necessitated the development, adoption and enforcement of the law regulating the work of a taxi in the capital. Act came into force involves the creation and maintenance of the Register of carriers and taxi services, "Moscow City taxi." The inclusion of a specific carrier in the register should be made on his application for free. A carrier wishing to get into the registry, must meet certain requirements relating to drivers and vehicles. Drivers must have work experience of at least three years old, fluent in Russian and be able to navigate the city streets, and taxi cars should be equipped with an electronic taximeter and comply with environmental safety standards. Law assumes that the city authorities will support the bona fide companies included in the register of carriers by providing the right to use the city taxi rank and privileges for taxes. It would seem that the law provides comfortable conditions for legitimate taxi, but it remains unclear why the the market should go private cabs, which says nothing in the law. The law came into force and was working, but no passengers, the carrier did not notice the changes for the better.

Taxis still remains inaccessible form of public transport, and conscientious companies are still experiencing the oppression of illegal competition. However, to draw conclusions too early. To any law began to take some work time and a lot of extra work. It is not enough to adopt new rules to ensure their right to life. But criticism and discontent – the constant companion of any innovation. Road by walking, and the first step to civilized taxi in Moscow is already made.
