About the Coronavirus
Different service provisionThe social importance of public transport is great. We try to serve our travellers as long as possible. Finally, we also transport many passengers working in vital sectors on a daily basis. It is particularly important that these employees are able to work at this time.
The provision of service in public transport is different from what travellers are used to in order to limit the spread of the Coronavirus.
From 1 June wearing a mouth mask in public transport is mandatoryThe use of mouth masks will become mandatory for passengers and employees in the public transport vehicles as of 1 June. Shawls and other mouth covers are not sufficient. Travellers themselves are responsible for purchasing mouth masks.
Boarding in the BackWe ask passengers on bus line 28 to get in through the back door and check in at the back. This reduces the number of contact moments between passengers and bus drivers. With this measure we try to find the right balance between the health of our employees and the service we provide to our passengers.
Boarding in the back means you can't buy a separate ticket from the bus driver. However, the intention is that you have a valid ticket in your pocket. Therefore travel with the OV-chipkaart. You can upgrade your OV-chipkaart online.
No OV-chipkaart? Then choose an e-ticket.
Paying by OV-chipkaart to the drivers of the Texelhopper mini buses is no longer justified in view of the spread of the Coronavirus. Driver and traveller then get too close to each other. Therefore, from 27 March 2020 until further notice, it will only be possible to pay by debit card or credit card via the SumUp in the Texelhopper mini buses. We use a temporary fare of € 2,- one way.
Can I still travel by public transport?Yes. You can travel by train, bus, tram or metro, except if you have complaints or fragile health. In that case it is advised to avoid public transport.
