Bike taxi

The bike taxi is there for less mobile people in Ghent.

The bike taxi focuses on short trips from door to door. Do you have a hairdresser's appointment, are you visiting family or do you just want to get some fresh air, but find it difficult to get around on your own? Our bike taxi will be glad transporting you!

The drivers of the bike taxis are a mix of newcomers and less new Ghentians. They received a proper training to drive the bike taxi.
