Empty kilometers With the winning of this assignment, taxi company Van der Zanden will once again be responsible for the implementation of student transport in the municipality of Nuenen. In 2017 the Helmond transport company also won this contract. According to director Richard Cox, winning this contract was due to the price at the time. “I think the fact that we are the cheapest tenderer has to do with the fact that we have the transport flow from Helmond to the municipality of Eindhoven. Nuenen is right in between, so we have fewer empty kilometers”, Cox explained at the time.
