The Netherlands have a well-established network of public transport. Trains, busses, underground, trams, it is all there. A widely used way of planning your journey with public transport (“openbaar vervoer”, or “OV”) is through the website www.9292ov.nl.
Paying is done by means of an “OV-chip-card”. This is a single card which can be used in all public transport in the country. In case you are registered in the Netherlands, you can apply for a personalized card; alternatively, you can also buy an anonymous one for € 7,50. Using terminals found at train stations and stops, you charge money on the card. You can also do that online.
