GUIDANCE MINISTRY OF INFRASTRUCTURE AND WATER MANAGEMENT ON AVAILABILITY FEE

2020-present

THE QUESTION

Om ten tijde van de coronamaatregelen er toch voor te zorgen dat het openbaar vervoer op capaciteit zou blijven rijden, zijn afspraken gemaakt tussen het Ministerie van IenW en de vervoerbedrijven in Nederland. Deze regeling moest in 2020 worden ingericht en is in de daaropvolgende jaren steeds vernieuwd en aangepast. Het ministerie zocht een inhoudelijk expert die hen op dit dossier kon ondersteunen.

HYPERCUBE’S WORK

From the beginning of the project, Hypercube advised in the establishment and design of the availability fee. Since then, the scheme has been extended and adapted several times, each time Hypercube has contributed to the final set-up and elaboration of the new scheme.

Hypercube has also set up a dashboard for the ministry in which all financial key figures, but also the performance of the carriers, can be seen.

RESULTS AND FUTURE

Hypercube has set up a monitoring programme that presents both the financial performance of transport operators in relation to the availability fee and transport performance. In addition, this monitor is extended with images from the passenger perspective presenting the impact of various measures like decreasing the capacity on the freedom of movement for passengers.
