Student OV-chipkaart

The OV-chipkaart is your first step to mastering transport in the Netherlands. It was introduced in 2002 to replace paper tickets. Since 2014 NS (Nederlandse Spoorwegen) have stopped selling regular paper tickets at the station. Although you can buy regular bus tickets from the bus driver and disposable OV-chip cards for trains at the station, paper tickets are almost always more expensive than using your own OV chip card. Furthermore, owning an OV-chip card may allow you to take advantage of certain student benefits.
