When you use the OV chip card or the Syntus app, you do not have to pay cash when buying your ticket from the bus driver. This is a safer and easier way to travel!
- The OV chip card is the perfect way to travel with public transport. You can use this card on all trains, buses, metros and trams in the Netherlands;
- The Syntus app allows you to travel with your smartphone and ensures you always have a ticket with you. You can purchase a variety of tickets and subscriptions via the Syntus app.
Together with other Dutch transport operators, Syntus is looking for a joint solution to ban cash payments in buses in order to make public transport safer. Syntus wants to ban cash payments in all Syntus buses per 1 January 2018. To prepare for this transition, Syntus will set up a pilot programme this year to test equipment for alternative payment methods such as debit card payments and touch-free payments.
