Within the municipalities of Maassluis, Vlaardingen and Schiedam, a new party will be responsible for planning target group transport. From 1 August, transport company Munckhof (Hansea) will be responsible for coordinating and issuing the journeys under the Social Support Act (WMO). Munckhof remains the permanent point of contact as a central counter for travelers and also provides transport tips to travelers who can still use other types of transport, such as Argos Mobile, a mobility scooter or public transport.
The board of Rogplus consists of aldermen from MVS who have social support in their portfolio. Its 100 Rogplus employees play an important role in providing services to the residents of Maassluis, Vlaardingen and Schiedam. The organization that monitors the care is responsible, together with the municipalities, for the newly drawn up conditions that the carriers must meet.
As of August 1, the transporter Noot from Ede, which will continue to provide student transport until August 1, 2025, will be replaced within the municipalities by the Rotterdam transporter Trevvel and the Arnhem company Willemsende Koning. Rogplus says that the travelers, who will be informed in the coming months, who now use the regional taxi rides will not have to apply again.
Earlier this month, Edwin Besseling moved from the Rotterdam transport company Trevvel to the Munckhof Group as Senior Manager Operations, responsible for the national implementation organization of taxi and coach transport services for, among others, the healthcare, education and recreational sectors.
Munckhof Group belongs to Hansea. Munckhof and Hansea aspire to become the strongest mobility network in the Benelux with 3.000 experts in national and international passenger transport. Investments in sustainability, quality of service and innovation will be central to this.
