The school rides and transport services for the elderly and persons with disabilities that were carried out by Kajon Oy for the City of Espoo will be transferred to FixuTaxi (formerly Taxia Oy) starting from Tuesday, 21 April 2020. FixuTaxi will provide taxi rides until further notice.
The taxi rides that will now be transferred to FixuTaxi are school rides and group rides for the elderly and people with disabilities, mostly in the areas of Matinkylä-Olari, Tapiola and Leppävaara.
FixuTaxi / the City of Espoo will personally contact the customers affected by the change.
Kajon Oy filed for bankruptcy on 15 April 2020 and cannot provide transport services for the City of Espoo after 20 April 2020. Kajon Oy earlier announced that it would provide transport services until the end of April.
The City of Espoo has begun the process of finding a new service provider. Temporary arrangements will be made in spring and summer to replace the taxi rides that Kajon now cannot provide. The City of Espoo has started preparations for competitive tendering to provide transport services starting from the autumn.
We will publish further information as the arrangements proceed.
