Taxi company Care transport Niemantsverdriet will be responsible for target group transport for the municipality of Nissewaard as of February 1 (today). The municipality has announced this on its own website. Niemantsverdriet takes over from Taxi Overgaauw, which announced at the end of last year that it would stop carrying out target group transport.
Taxi Overgaauw provided target group transport in the municipality of Nissewaard and part of the new municipality of Voorne aan Zee until 03 January. “This carrier has decided to stop transporting our municipality as of February 1 2023. Fortunately, Care Transport Nissewaard will take over this transport as of February 1 2023, the municipality writes.
Residents who use student transport, the Collective Demand-dependent Transport (CVV), transport under the Youth Act or the individual transport Wmo, will be dealing with a new transporter as of today. Nothing else will change, the municipality emphasizes. “The current card remains valid and the telephone number remains the same.”
Continue as a sole proprietorship At the end of December, Jan Ollefers, director of Taxi Overgaauw, announced that he would stop carrying out target group transport. “I will continue as a sole proprietorship”, Ollefers told TaxiPro at the time. “I’m going to see if I like it. I don’t know at the moment, because I’ve never done that. Maybe I’ll find out in six months that I don’t like this after all. If that is the case, I will also sell my last two vehicles.”
