Are you familiar with Mokumflex? With this transport service, you travel by taxi for only € 2.50 within the designated areas in Landelijk Noord or Driemond.
Registration in advance isn’t necessary, meaning you can use this service right away. Read below for more information about Mokumflex!
In 2018, the municipality of Amsterdam started a pilot with demand-driven public transport in the areas Driemond and Landelijk Noord (Durgerdam, Holysloot, Ransdorp, Schellingwoude and Zunderdorp). If you need transportation to or from these areas, you can travel by Mokumflex taxi for a small fee.
For transport outside of these areas, you can extend your Mokumflex ride for a reduced rate!
How does Mokumflex work?
Booking a Mokumflex taxi is very simple. Please keep reading to find out how it works.
1. Registering is not necessary
Pre-registration is not needed; even if you’ve never used Mokumflex before, you can travel right away!
2. Book a ride
Book your Mokumflex taxi through the booking form on this page. Select the stop where you want to be collected from the dropdown menu. You’ll find all stops and routes on the map below.
You can order a flex taxi up to 45 minutes in advance, and you can take up to 5 extra passengers with you. The person who makes the booking will also pay the personal contribution for all passengers.
It’s possible to make reservations by phone as well. You can even book via WhatsApp! However, it’s necessary to issue a direct debit authorisation in advance when you want to book by telephone. You can give a mandate digitally. When booking, state your name to the operator, and we will book your ride on account!
3. Pay the personal contribution
The personal contribution of € 2.50 per passenger can be paid in advance with iDeal, Sofort, PayPal and credit card, to name just a few of the available payment methods. Do you prefer to pay afterwards? That’s only possible if you reside in The Netherlands. Download the mandate form, enter the required information, sign it digitally and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you fill, sign and send the form digitally, it’s valid immediately. Of course, you can also print the mandate and return it through physical mail. It will then take a little longer to process your authorisation. We collect the contribution at the beginning of each month.
We’ll pick you up at the stop you’ve requested. We’ll never deviate from this location. However, we do employ a time frame of eleven minutes around your requested time. The flex taxi appears at most one minute before to ten minutes after the booked time. Twenty minutes before the pickup time, you’ll receive a text message with a link to see the taxi arriving on a live map. Five minutes before the driver arrives at the stop, he or she will call you.
Possibly, you’ll travel together with other flexers; Mokumflex is combined transport. By combining passengers on the same route, we limit the number of vehicle movements as much as possible. In this way, we help to keep the surroundings peaceful and the air clean.
In the Landelijk Noord region, you can order a flex taxi at one of the stops of the former GVB lines 30 and 31. The taxi runs to Station Noord, but you can get off at any stop you like. You can also travel on to the BovenIJ hospital or change from line 26 at the Zuiderzeeweg stop.
In (the surroundings of) Driemond, we drive the same route as GVB line 49, between Station Weesp and Station Gaasperplas. There are also four additional, designated Mokumflex stops in Driemond:
- Burgemeester Kasteleinstraat
- Match ZO
- Volkstuinen Driemond
Mokumflex goes further
The supplementary service Mokumflex goes further allows you to travel further into the city with your Mokumflex taxi. What’s more, you can also use an extended flex ride for a trip from Schiphol Airport or the city back to a Mokumflex area.
Our flex taxis run daily from 06:00 AM until midnight. Times may change on public holidays. We’ll keep you informed on this page.
Are you travelling outside these times? Then book a Staxi for a fixed price!
Mokumflex is for everyone who travels to/from Landelijk Noord or in the Driemond area in between Station Weesp and Station Gaasperplas. Pupils form a particular group because transport to and from school is often needed daily and at regular times. We plan journeys to and from school once every three months.

When you book a taxi with us, you will get a fixed price in advance. The exact cost depends on several things.
The distance of the ride
Of course, you will pay less for a shorter ride. However, our rate per kilometre decreases as the total distance increases. That is unique because most drivers use their taximeter, which charges a fixed amount for each kilometre. As a result, you are off cheaper with Staxi than with other taxi companies.
The type of vehicle
A ride in a regular taxi is cheaper than a ride in a taxi van. When you pre-book your taxi with us, the difference in costs between a minivan and sedan is smaller than when you flag down a cab on the street or get in at a taxi rank. In that case, the driver will charge the meter rate, which is more expensive than our fixed rates.
Supply and demand
Just like a plane ticket or a night in a hotel, the fare for the same trip can fluctuate, depending on supply and demand. For example: in extreme weather conditions, such as heavy snow, the need for taxi transport increases rapidly, which makes the price rise. The same journey can also be a lot cheaper, for instance, travelling at a quiet time.
As such, Staxi works with peak and off-peak hours. Our software automatically adjusts the fares based on supply and demand. In quiet moments, you will travel even cheaper with Staxi.
Calculate the fare for your taxi ride easily with our taxi fare calculator or via the Staxi App!
Staxi has no minimum or maximum reservation time. You can order a taxi at any time.
Tip: When you book a taxi with the Staxi App, you can see precisely where the driver is and what time he or she will arrive.
At Staxi you can pay for your taxi in any way you like. Because we work with fixed prices, it is possible to pay in advance via your trusted payment environment such as iDeal, Sofort or PayPal.
Would you rather pay on-site with the driver? That’s possible too! Our drivers accept cash as well as debit and credit card payments. Without any extra costs, of course!
