Is there a taxi curfew during the lockdown?

On the day of the press conference in which Mark Rutte introduced the Dutch curfew, many drivers inquired: “Can we keep working during the curfew?”. Also: “I usually start around 04:00 in the morning, and then I often bring people to the emergency room in the hospital. I’m sure we’re exempted from the curfew, right?”

“Last week, you took me to the OLVG hospital. I had an allergic reaction, and you basically saved my life!”

Taxi drivers providing essential services are exempt from the curfew. Therefore, they can still go out and do their work during the corona curfew. Admittedly, there won’t be much work, but taxi drivers are indispensable for some people or at some times. As a result, taxis are allowed to operate during the covid curfew.

In case of urgent medical circumstances or calamities, you’ll most probably need transport to the hospital or medical center. If you cannot drive yourself, then taxi transport is undeniably essential.

“Last week, you took me to the OLVG hospital. I had an allergic reaction, and you basically saved my life”, a passenger recently e-mailed us. Fortunately, the taxi driver was quickly on the spot when the lady in question most needed him.
