As of 29 September 2016, you can also use your PIN card to pay on the bus. We tested this on some route 33 buses in Amsterdam-Noord. We are rapidly rolling this out.
We will gradually introduce the devices in our buses. You will then be able to pay using your PIN payment card, contactless or credit card. The intention is allow all of our bus passengers pay for their ticket with their PIN payment or credit card by the end of this year. Paying with cash will also be possible. Starting in January 2017, we no longer want to have any cash or tickets of value on our buses.
Mayor Van der Laan made a PIN payment for the first time on the bus. This received a lot of attention in the media.
