That's how we will pay in public transport

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'll let you know. You can keep using your OV-chipkaart until then.
