New Staxi Service: Dial-a-Ride in rural Amsterdam
We are very proud that the city of Amsterdam has selected us as the new transporter for Mokumflex! From the 1st of July onwards, you can book a flex taxi with us. Find out what Mokumflex is below. To lift a tip of the veil: a Mokumflex ride will cost you just € 2.50 per person!
Mokumflex: demand-responsive public transport
In 2018, the municipality of Amsterdam started the Mokumflex project as a pilot. In the sparsely populated areas of Landelijk Noord and Driemond, travellers could book a free taxi to or from a bus stop or station nearby. While Mokumflex was operational, there was no need for a scheduled bus service, but residents could still rely on transportation to and from public transport hubs.
The pilot was successful, so the project was extended. From the 26th of August 2019 onwards, ‘flexers’ paid a personal contribution of € 2.50 per person.
Staxi: the new Mokumflex transporter
The contract with the original transporter expired on the 30th of June 2020. Several parties signed up to become the new Mokumflex transporter. And, you guessed it, we came out as the winner!
We are immensely proud to add this mobility solution to our list of services! For a fixed price per person, you can travel from stop to stop in the Driemond region (the blue route on the map below) or Landelijk Noord (the red route on the map below).
In addition to our regular fixed price taxi service, you can now book a very-low-cost Mokumflex taxi ride within the designated areas!
