Pay the night bus fare using your balance

Just check in and out with your OV-chipkaart! Sounds easy and it is too.  

How does it work?

When you check in and out, the fixed nigh bus fare of € 4.50 will be debited from the balance on your OV-chipkaart. Now, you don't have to worry about having small change with you for a night bus ticket... just check in and out.

Previously, it was possible to pay for a night bus ticket using your balance. But, you first had to acquire the ticket. You no longer need to do this.
