price indications app / online and fixed prices to Schiphol
Price calculations app / online
Unfortunately our price indications in the app and online widget are not functioning as they should. The map on which those are based is not realtime, which means that, for example, the impact of major road divsersions is not oncluded in the price calaculations. We are working on getting this map updated to the realtime version. For a good price indication, we recommend contacting our dispatch via 020777777 or email@example.com

Bteween 7 and 21 Julty we will charge the following prices from the area below (outlined in red):
With our sincere apologies for these inconveniences.
We have about 1,500 drivers and 1,250 cars. Our drivers are a reflection of society. We have drivers with 40 years of experience, but also young students who drive a taxi on the weekends.
Our drivers are not employed by TCA but all work as independent entrepreneurs. Our drivers meet a number of strict requirements. They are all in possession of:
The legally obligatory part (taxi driver’s diploma)
Tram track exemption, shared use of tram tracks and bus lanes (City of Amsterdam, CCV)
Certificate of Conduct (no older than three months for taxi driver’s diploma)
Our drivers have also undergone a psychological test, and followed and completed an internal TCA course. During this course, attention is paid to customer service, knowledge about the streets and handling the FMS Terminal (ride system, accepting rides). In addition to the TCA course, our drivers also follow a resistance training course on aggression and robbery prevention in 2014. This training course was provided by AndersVeilig
