According to Yegor Fedorov, director of Business Development of inDriver, the company has expansion plan throughout Latin America, so during this year, they will invest more than US$50 million to reach the objectives in the region.

In this first stage of testing, on April 4 inDriver started in Costa Rica with more than 700 registered drivers.
