Travelling by taxi during the corona outbreak has its advantages. You don’t have to share a taxi with other travellers, like public transport. The driver cleans the corona-sensitive parts of the vehicle, such as the handles and the seatbelts, after each ride.
Furthermore, there are additional guidelines for both driver and passenger. The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management formulated these to prevent the unchecked spread of corona.
Safe and responsible taxiing during the corona outbreak
In addition to general guidelines against the spread of the coronavirus, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management has written out a specific protocol for transport by taxi.
The following supplementary guidelines apply to taxi passengers:
- Prebook your taxi ride as much as possible;
- Keep distance from the driver:
- Embark and disembark yourself;
- If possible, sit in the back seat;
- Fasten your seatbelt yourself;
- Place luggage in the luggage compartment yourself or keep it on your lap.
- Pay in advance or with debit/credit card. Avoid cash payments.
Easing of corona measures
Up to and including the 30th of June, a regular taxi can carry a maximum of three people from the same household. Do you travel with a larger group? Then book a taxi van. The maximum capacity of the taxi vans must also be adjusted, from eight to a maximum of seven passengers, due to the guidelines.
From the 1st of July onwards, all seats are available again and you can travel with other people that are not part of your household. In a regular taxi, you can travel with four passengers. For a taxi van, the maximum is eight passengers. As of this date, wearing a face mask in the taxi is mandatory.
