What is taxi aggregators? This is tens of millions trips per year in Russia and hundreds of millions trips per year in the World. And all these trips generate dozens of individual-level data that may be very useful for revealing behavioral insights. In the first part of this paper I consider how taxi aggregators work, why they use dynamic pricing and how this dynamic pricing affects users and drivers. In the second part I conduct an empirical study using individual-level driver data of the biggest Russian taxi aggregator “Yandex.Taxi” for estimation driver’s labor supply elasticity and testing the “income targeting hypothesis” proposed in paper by Camerer et al. (1997)
