Le Vehicule Sanitaire Leger, commonly referred to as a taxi conventionalne, provides transport privileges for individuals requiring special assistance with their relocations. Authorized by an ordinance on 17 November 2021 and subsequent concertation meetings with both the Transportation Minister and federations representing taxis, chauffeurs have been trained specifically to offer personalized patient care as they lead passengers right up to their destinations while helping mount or use equipment provided within their vehicule.
Retroactive mobility vehicles (as distinct from ambulances which are not approved during online movements) are recommended to meet retroactive mobility needs more effectively (than ambulances which do not). Such vehicles provide transport between healthcare centres and people receiving assistance; their costs are generally comparable or more cost-effective than taxi services.
Implementation of a VSL experimentation park should enable bicycling companies to more efficiently structure their transportation offerings and improve access to healthcare. Additionally, this initiative should encourage them to identify themselves clearly as health transporters that form part of healthcare networks and participate in patient journeys.
Replacement of classic cars with VSL taxis will increase visits to healthcare facilities while simultaneously decreasing expenditures on patient transports incurred through healthcare insurance policies. Furthermore, expansion of VSL experimentation park will facilitate rigorous results tracking in order to assess its impacts on company operations as a whole.
