More choices, more flexibility
Something is about to change in public transport. In the bus, the train, the tram, the metro: Soon you will be able to check in and check out of public transport the way you prefer: with your contactless debit card, credit card, phone. And a wearable? Yes, that too. Your trusty OV-chipkaart also remains an option for now.

OV-chipkaart: nice and familiar
Travelling on public transport with the familiar OV-chipkaart will remain an option. However, the current OV-chipkaart will slowly be replaced with a new one. It will incorporate new technologies that support new services. What those services will look like? We don't know yet.
Phone: everything within reach
Your debit card, ticket or train travel with GPS. Thanks to your phone you will have everything within reach. The OV-chipkaart will also join this lineup in the future. You decide what suits you best.
Train travel with GPS: it can be that easy
There's something new for the train traveler in the Netherlands: travel with GPS on your phone. This will make train travel even more relaxed. The first trial for train travel with GPS starts in 2021. As soon as we know the exact date, we'll let you know.
Tickets: here to stay
Buying an individual ticket will remain available for those who prefer it. We will do whatever needed to make travelling and payment in public transport as easy as possible.
