PUBLIC TRANSPORT

General information use public transport in the Netherlands

The public transport in the Netherlands is well organized. Almost every venue or town is accessible by train and/or bus.
Most important is that you buy a valid ticket, this ticket is called: OV-chipcard. The benefit of a OV-chipcard is that you can use it for traveling with every possible public transport in the Netherlands (bus, train, tram and metro).

Very important is that you put (enough) money on the card. For traveling by train your must at least put €10,- on your card to get though the gates at the train station. You can buy and charge your OV-chipcard at a counter or device, at airports, at stations and at newsagents or sometimes even supermarkets.

A nice tool that can help you plan your journey by public transport within the Netherlands is the App 9292OV (also available in English). 

Traveling by bus, metro or tram

With a positive balance (€5,- or more) on your OV-chipcard it is possible to travel by bus, metro or tram. You can also purchase a disposable card on the tram and/or bus, but a disposable card is more expensive than using your OV-chipcard.

Traveling by train (only)
If you only travel by train and not planning to do some sightseeing in the Netherlands it is enough to buy a train ticket (one way) at the ticket machine you find at the rail station. You have to choose your final destination at the machine and then you are ready to go. You are not in need of a OV-chipcard in this case.
To access the platform you check in at the gates with your train ticket. You again checkout upon arrival, so you get the opportunity to leave the station.

It is not possible to pay with your credit card to get a OV-chipcard or train ticket. In the Netherlands paying with your debit card is the most common payment method.
