Local bus tariff

You can travel on the local bus with your OV-chipkaart, OVpay or buy a ticket from the driver.

  • Never more than € 4,95
  • For sale on the bus or travel with your OV-chipkaart.
On the local bus you can travel with an OV chip card, OVpay (check in and out with your contactless debit card, credit card or mobile). You travel on the local bus on balance, but you never pay more than € 4.95.

When you travel on balance, you pay a basic rate plus an amount for each kilometer travelled. An entry fee will first be debited from your balance when you check in. At check-out, the boarding fare will be refunded and the kilometers traveled and the basic fare will be charged. If you transfer within 35 minutes, you only pay the basic fare once.

Children up to 4 years old travel for free and in 2024 children from 4 to 11 years travel free with an adult (max. 3 children free per adult).

The discount is applied to the normal fare. Outside the period of validity (during peak hours for StudentWeekend) you travel on balance and the normal kilometer rate applies.

  • It is also possible to travel on the local bus with your travel on account product on the OV-chipkaart (such as NS Flex). The ride will then be settled with your monthly invoice, so you do not need to have a balance on your card for this. You will then pay the basic rate + kilometer rate instead.
