Who pays what?
Many parties questioned the money. Because who pays what? Zeeland-Flemish municipalities were already concerned about this. “This is a collective responsibility. We would like to make location choices for centers, for example (new name for stops, editorial.) We will be responsible for centers located on provincial roads and we will be responsible for municipalities on municipal roads.”
Harry van der Moss insists that if a municipality has an additional preference for such a center, it must be paid for by the municipality itself. “Some municipalities have already added resources to their budgets because they say I want a center with more facilities and amenities, for example a closed bicycle shed or waiting area.”
That is, in that sense, municipalities have a financial responsibility. That also means you will see differences, according to the commissioner. “A municipality says it’s better for my residents to wait for vacant space. It may be a municipality’s choice. So you’ll see diversity between municipalities, but that’s also good. We’ve already discussed, I see. Municipalities have the option to invest.”
Small-scale traffic is running fast, how does it work?
Suppose you want to travel by public transport from Wissenkerke to Bergen op Zoom on weekdays at 10am. You can then arrange traffic via the application or phone number. If the WMO van for target group transport is at that time. He will pick you up and take you from the pick-up point to the nearest center. Because the bus going to Kos arrives at that center. The station at Goes has what is called the Station Hub, where you take the train to the Bergen of Zoom.

VVD mainly thought about how that transportation would be properly organized in the future. The transportation plan, called the Regional Movement Strategy, states that a movement center will be established. In particular, it should restrict small-scale traffic when users request traffic through an application or phone number. “Will the people there have enough knowledge and expertise to connect better transportation with the bus?” According to VVD party member Daniëlle de Clerck.
On the other hand, as far as SGP is concerned, they mainly want to focus on pilots. “How to deal with it?” Says party member Keys van den Berg. “Is there still financial opportunity to start new pilots and what benefits have pilots made so far? How can we apply that experience to new pilots elsewhere in the province?”
The transportation plan will be put to a vote on December 17th. After today’s committee meeting, it will be passed with a definite boundary probability. In the meantime, municipalities should also consider. From January, the aim is to be able to develop concrete plans at the municipal and provincial levels regarding the implementation of the new public transport.
