Transport measures ( Update July 1, 2020)
TCA follows the taxi transport protocol as drawn up by Royal Dutch Transport (KNV), the national association for entrepreneurs active in healthcare and taxi transport, together with the trade unions FNV and CNV. Within the framework of government policy and advice from RIVM to fight the corona virus, taxi transporters and their employees want to use this to carry out taxi transport on a larger scale as responsibly as possible.
We assume that everyone is now well acquainted with the general hygiene measures wich can be found on the RIVM site:
Transport measures (update July 1, 2020)
As of 1 July it is mandatory to reserve a taxi, so that tracing is possible – if necessary. When you order the ride by phone or via the APP at TCA, this data is already recorded (name and email or phone number, date & time). Hailing a taxi is also still possible, but you will then be asked by the driver to go through a small checklist.
When requesting a ride, our operator or the driver will ask whether you have corona -related complaints ( in accordance with RIVM guidelines). The traveller cannot take a taxi in the event of complaints. When the driver is in doubt whether the traveller is free of complaints, the driver decides whether or not the traveller can come alone.
As of July 1 travellers aged 13 and older are required to wear a face mask in the taxi.
If it is possible to maintain a distance of at least 1.5m between the driver and passengers or between several passengers in the vehicle, no additional measures are necessary. If it is not possible to keep a 1.5m distance between the driver and the passenger(s):
- There is physical protection between driver and passengers(s)
- Or the driver will wear a face mask like the passenger(s)
