Public Transport

Public Transport chipcard

In the Netherlands we use a chipcard for our public transport. You can buy it for €7,50 in the yellow machines on the trainstations. You have to load it with money to be able to use it. For trains you will need at least €20 and for busses it is €4. 

 For the trains you can buy seperate tickets in those machines as well, that will add another euro to the price. If you want to buy a ticket at the bus, you can do that only by card. Changes are high that the pin machines won´t take your card. A lot of machines in the Netherlands only accept Maestro and Mastercard.

You could also buy a transport ticket for the Utrecht region here.

Schedules

You can find all the public transport schedules in Google or the 9292 app.
