Wear a mouth mask and avoid travelling during rush hour. More information about the coronavirus adaptations

About the Coronavirus

Based on the latest government measures regarding the coronavirus, there are changes in our service provision. We try to provide the best possible service to our passengers. Plan your trip in advance for up-to-date travel advice and keep an eye on this page for updates. 

Different service provision

From July onwards, public transport can be used by everyone again. The timetable is back to the old level, mouth masks remain mandatory and the front door of the bus remains closed.
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 mandatory

The 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 Back

We ask passengers on bus line 28 to step in via the back door and check in at the back. This reduces the number of contact moments between passengers and bus drivers.


Boarding in the back means you can't buy a 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 credit online.

No OV-chipkaart? Buy an e-ticket in advance.

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.
