You can use WMO transport with a transport pass. You can request this from the municipality. You will receive a pass from the carrier with a customer number. You usually travel with others with WMO transport. The taxi then picks up several passengers and does not always take the shortest route from your front door to your destination.
Living independently, shopping or visiting family or friends can be quite a task for various reasons. Do you live in Aalsmeer and do you need help or support? Then you can contact the Social Counter.
