OVpay: checking in and out with your debit card

In more and more locations in the Netherlands you can already check in and out with your contactless debit card, credit card or with the payment app on your phone or smartwatch. Pay for your bus trip just as easily as you pay your groceries in the supermarket. You can recognize the buses where this is possible by the OVpay sticker at the entrance of the bus. 

How does it work?

  1. You get on the bus and check in with your contactless debit card, credit card or your debit card on your mobile phone or smartwatch. No need to pre-register or download an app.

  2. Getting off the bus means checking out! Check out with the same card you checked in with.

Forgot to check out? Simply request a refund via our customer service.

Tip: take your debit card out your wallet to check in. If you hold your entire wallet in front of the check-in machine, the machine may take another card.
