Staxi: an acknowledged taxi company
Staxi was founded in 2013 and the first taxi organisation to obtain the permit, required on behalf of the city of Amsterdam, to offer taxi services on the streets of Amsterdam. Here at Staxi, we believe that the most important aspect of a good taxi service is good quality. That’s why we are immensely proud of our quality certificates and permits:
✓ TTO permit: as mentioned above, the city of Amsterdam instated the requirement of this particular permit to offer taxi services on the streets of Amsterdam in 2013. Staxi was the first organisation to obtain this permit on the 4th of March 2013.
✓ TX-certificate: In order to offer taxi services in the Netherlands, a driver must meet certain demands set by the state. Another qualification organisation, the TX-keur foundation, sets even higher standards for drivers. When these demands are met, the driver will obtain a TX-certificate, indicating that the high quality standards of TX-keur foundation are met. When a taxi organisation such as Staxi has a certain percentage of TX-qualified drivers, it is eligible to get a TX-certificate for itself. We are the proud owner of one such certificate.
✓ GTO acknowledgement: Staxi is one of eight taxi organisations that are appointed by Schiphol airport as an official airport taxi organisation (GTO). Taxi drivers who offer their taxi services at the Amsterdam airport taxi stand, must meet even higher requirements regarding to quality and service. Each month, Staxi drivers carry out about 10.000 rides starting from the Amsterdam airport taxi stand. We can say with certainty that our drivers meet the highest standards imaginable.
