The OV-chipkaart is the payment method for public transport in the Netherlands. If you carry an OV-chipkaart with you, you no longer need to think about strip tickets or metro tickets. You load credit onto the card in Euro or add a travel product, such as a single journey, a monthly pass for commuting or a season ticket.
There are two different cards: a personal OV-chipkaart and an anonymous OV-chipkaart. With a number of public transport companies you can also purchase disposable cards. Which card is right for you?
You can still buy a single ticket, or disposable card, by most public transport companies in the bus or tram, in the self-service portal which are usually located near the station or on the website of the public transport company. There is also a nation-wide app that sells tickets which you can use everywhere, for more information visit this website.
