Public transportation in the Netherlands
The Netherlands has an extensive network of public transportation. With an OV-chipkaart you no longer have to think about single tickets: you pay all your trips on public transport with this card. You can buy the card at train stations, in various stores and supermarkets, but also online.
Do you travel by train often? A train subscription can then be beneficial. The NS offers various subscriptions. These allow you, for example, to travel at certain times of day with a discount. On the website of the NS you can order a subscription card. This card can also be used for the bus, streetcar or metro.
You can read how to use the card on the website of the OV-chipkaart
