Venlo joins AutoMaatje, a transport service for people who are less mobile. In addition to the Wish Bus Your Neighborhood Bus in Tegelen, Venlo-South and Belfeld and the Wish Bus De Bekkerie in Blerick, Boekend and Hout-Blerick and the regular transport network, ANWB AutoMaatje offers people the opportunity to participate in social life again.
With AutoMaatje, individual wishes such as individual transport, going out with a neighbor or a special destination can now also be carried out. The AutoMaatje volunteer transports fewer mobile people with their own car when it suits the volunteer. The volunteers receive a small kilometer allowance of € 0,30 per kilometer for this.
Venlo is the first municipality in North Limburg where this service will be carried out.
