Because the sole tenderer withdrew from the new tender, the municipality of Den Bosch has agreed with the current student transport companies that they will continue their work for another year. It concerns Van Driel and Juijn.

The tender was divided into two lots. Lot 2 concerns gym transport. This has simply been awarded to Kupers Touringcars. This company came out on top of three bidders. The term of the contract will start on August 1 and will end six years later, after which it can also be extended: first by two years and then possibly by another year.

Nothing will change for the time being For the transport to and from educational institutions and workshops, it was already planned that part of this transport would only be added to the contract a year later. But also for the part for which a new contractor was sought as of 1 August, nothing will change for the time being. A tender was received, but that party ultimately requested to be excluded from the tender. This company was unable to demonstrate that the suitability requirement ‘compliance with the collective labor agreement’ could be met.

Pupils and parents do not notice anything Because the sole tenderer was therefore excluded, the municipality of Den Bosch could not award plot 1. With too little time to tender again , the solution was found close to home, says a spokesperson. “The municipality has found the current carriers Van Driel and Juijn willing to take care of the non-awarded journeys in the coming school year. For students and parents this means that they will not notice anything because the current services will be continued. Preparations for the new tender have already started.”
