How is the charge calculated for my journey?
If you are travelling using the balance on your business public transport chip card, you will pay a set fee in addition to a charge per kilometre. This amount is equivalent to the first strip on a ‘strippenkaart’ ticket. We call this the basic rate, also referred to using the term boarding rate. NS and a number of train operators include the basic rate in the minimum charge. The website of the public transport chip card contains further information on boarding rates and basic rates.
