Last day for the Strippenkaart

Jump to last reply

Today is the last day the strippenkaart is valid on public transport in the Netherlands. The last provinces, Groningen, Drenthe and Utrecht switch to the OV chip card tomorrow.
It is expected that NS will stop with paper train tickets at the end of next year.

I'm not convinced the chipkaart has made life simpler, it certainly hasn't made it cheaper, and has made it more confusing for tourists. Why do politicians feel the need to "improve" such things. If it ain't broke why fix it?

RIP strippenkaart. :(
