Public transport and transport in The Netherlands

Što je ovjerena fotokopija?

Given that it is the most densely populated area in Europe, but also the country with the largest commercial port and economic and legal entrance to Western Europe, transport in The Netherlands simply has to be perfect.

Thus, The Netherlands boasts a fantastic infrastructure, a fast train network and numerous international airports that make it easy to travel to and from The Netherlands.

The coverage of the transport system is great and you can get almost anywhere you want by public transport. Trains are extremely punctual and frequent, and in the event of any change, you will be notified immediately via the mobile app.

Tips & amp; tricks

  1. If you’re traveling by public transport to your faculty or workplace, think about buying an OV chip card . The OV card is topped up online or on one of the devices at the train stations, and you must have a minimum of € 20 on it to be able to travel. It is very important before / after traveling by train, bus or metro to physically check in / check out the trip with a card scan at the exit because otherwise you risk a penalty / amount of the longest route in the network as the price of the trip instead of payments per kilometer of the route.
  2. If you don’t want an official OV card with an ID and want to lend it to a friend, you can always get an anonymous OV card in supermarkets, tobacco shops, ticket offices at central city stations or at vending machines. There is also a one-time one-time card for tourist purposes. More information on the transport itself and the frequency of the means of transport for each route can be found here: http: / /journeyplanner.9292.nl (and it’s handy to always have “9292” apps for general transportation and “NS” for train scheduling on your smart device).
  3. Students who meet certain conditions (link) are able to get a student OV card with free travel through the Studiefinanciering scholarship, which is valid either on weekdays or on weekends, and you choose which suits you best.
  4. If you live in a city where you both study and work or simply like to use a bicycle, then just continue with the bicycle as the cheapest and easiest means of transportation. Regardless of the mode of transportation to college or work, get a used bike instead of a new one, but invest in at least one good padlock . New bikes can also be very expensive, and thefts are relatively common.
  5. For recreation, but also for transport, the bike is perfect precisely because the Netherlands has enabled the existence of the largest network of bike paths (15,000 km), most of which is covered by sensors that change traffic lights as you approach intersections. For a weekend hobby, you can explore the area you live in with the help of a bicycle and GPS.
  6. Cycling rules include a right of way for the one to your right in almost every case unless there is a sign on the sidewalk itself indicating otherwise. Mandatory items are to have headlights and taillights on the bike and use them in the dark and do not make phone calls using your hand (s) because otherwise one of the traffic wardens can prescribe a financial penalty. Likewise, cyclists are, logically, prohibited from driving on the highway, and a turn must be indicated by hand.

The rules exist for almost everyone, which means having a very organized society in most segments, including transport in The Netherlands. You can find more information on our blog , and if you find studying in The Netherlands attractive, see our offer and how we can help achieve that goal.
