The city of Amsterdam wants to have an emission free taxi sector by 2025. In order to reach that goal, the city has taken a number of measures which favour clean taxis above conventional taxis. In 2017, as part of this policy, the city of Amsterdam decided to allow only clean taxis at the Leidseplein taxi stand, one of the busiest taxi stands in the city. This taxi stand is characterized by large numbers of passengers within very short periods at social evenings and nights on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The municipality wanted to know if the number of clean taxis in Amsterdam would be sufficient to handle these high peaks of passengers.
In this study, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) presents a monitoring tool that was developed to follow the visiting behaviour of clean (electric and green gas vehicles) and regular (diesel) taxis at the Leidseplein taxi stand. The tool served as a basis for the municipality to evaluate the feasibility of making this taxi stand completely clean. As such this tool aims to contribute to a better understanding of the effect of this privilege measure and to provide input for policy makers to introduce privilege schemes to stimulate clean taxis in cities.
