The GVB range of season tickets is changing

We recently added a new travel product to our range: ‘GVB Flex’. This allows you to travel throughout the Netherlands without credit and gives you a discount at GVB. We will also stop the GVB Zone and GVB Only monthly season tickets shortly. 

Why is the range changing?

Increasing numbers of travellers wish to simply be able to use different public transport operators or additional modes of transport, such as a a shared bicycle or shared car. Different tickets or season tickets are now required for this. 
The demand for greater flexibility when it comes to travelling and paying has also increased recently. People no longer wish to pay a fixed amount in advance - instead, preferring to pay for the journeys you actually make and paying less if you travel less or don't travel at all. 
We want to make this easier for travellers, which is why we have introduced GVB Flex. Our GVB Zone and GVB Only season tickets no longer meet these wishes, which is why we will be stopping these travel products shortly. 

When will this change take effect?

The new GVB Flex travel product is already available now. Read all there is to know about GVB Flex here.

GVB Zone/Only monthly season ticket 
The monthly season tickets will no longer be available from 1 January 2021. 

GVB Zone/Only annual season ticket (for private individuals)
- From 1 January 2021, it will no longer be possible to new apply for an annual season ticket. 
- Up to and including 31 August 2021, you will still be able to extend your current annual season ticket, however. 
- From 1 September 2022, annual season tickets will no longer be available.  

What are my options?

Up to and including 31 December 2020, you can purchase a GVB Zone or GVB Only monthly season ticket or apply for a new annual season ticket. These options will no longer be available after this date. 
There is also the option of switching to a different travel product. GVB Flex or a Randstad Noord Zone season ticket might be a good alternative.
