When you read the word sustainability in relation to a taxi company, the first thing that comes to mind is probably zero emission vehicles. Indeed, the number of electric taxis in Amsterdam is growing every day.
But sustainability is more than zero emission. As an organisation, we try every day to be as transparent and straightforward as we can. How we do all this? Read it below!
Sustainable taxi services: 100% free of emission
In Amsterdam, not a particularly big city, there’s more than 5000 taxis on the road. To keep things habitable for this and future generations, it’s important for taxi companies to actively motivate their drivers to make the transfer to a zero emission vehicle. Not an easy job in this fickle line of business.
Nonetheless, we’ve set the following goals for our organisation:
» In 2020: 60% of our fleet is zero emission
» In 2025: 100% of our fleet is zero emission
This is a work in progress. Luckily we’re backed up by important players such as the municipality of Amsterdam and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. They both share our vision about amping up the number of zero emission taxis.
Booking a zero emission taxi
At this moment, we have drivers enrolling their new, zero emission taxi with us almost daily. This means that before long, you can book a zero emission taxi with us!
Sustainability also means: being transparent and upright
In our daily business, we deal with all sorts of people. Obviously with each other as colleagues and with our drivers. But also with our customers, neighbours and partners.
As a basic rule for all communication, we employ our core values: safe, sure, simple and smile. Every day we try to be as transparent as possible in our communication and upright in conducting our business.
As such, our membership-fee for taxi drivers is very reasonable, just covering our administrative costs. The rates for our taxi rides are fair both for you as a customer as for the driver. At the actual work floor there’s always room to express feelings and ideas.
Sustaining the future
We think that everyone that has business with us, should be satisfied, content and happy. Otherwise, we would never be able to achieve our long term goals regarding sustaining and growing our organisation. Our ambition is sustainable as well!
