Automatic compensation due to faulty metro OV-chipkaart gates

In the night of Monday 4 into Tuesday 5 December, during a regular software update, something went wrong with our OV-chipkaart system. On 5 December, this issue caused some OV-chipkaart gates at our metro stations to not work. On that day, it is possible that some passengers were incorrectly charged for traveling on the metro. This is extremely irritating. Our deepest apologies for the inconvenience.

Campaign: Your money counts

If your OV-chipkaart expires, you can request a refund of the money remaining on the card. Many people do not know this or forget to ask for a refund. It's a shame because it's your money! Request a refund or donate it to a charity.
