TRANSPORT MADE TO MEASURE, ONE YEAR OF COLLECTIVE CLOSED TRANSPORT FOR PEOPLE WITH A LIMITED MOBILITY

VERVOER OP MAAT, EEN JAAR COLLECTIEF BESLOTEN VERVOER VOOR MENSEN MET EEN MOBILITEITSBEPERKING

After the introduction in 1994 of the Law for Provisions for Persons with a limited mobility local authorities have to provide transport for disabled people. The city of Rotterdam has chosen for a collective closed system, the 'Transport on Measure'. Together with the general public transport the system makes it possible for about 13000 of these people to make trips for the same price as with public transport. At the moment about 2200 trips are made per day. The system has an important social function in the abolishment or prevention of social isolation. Soon the chip-card will be introduced for paying. In the future the system can be expanded for commuting, transport to school and for transport of ill persons, for which no ambulance is needed.
