The OV-chipkaart is a reusable card that you use on public transportation. This card works on any bus, tram, metro, or train all throughout the entire country. It makes it much easier to explore the country freely without needing separate tickets for different modes of transportation, or cities.
Bike every day, everywhere.
Biking in the Netherlands is nothing new. In fact, we are probably the most modeled-after country when it comes to biking. The obvious benefits include being healthier and less stressed; not having to pay for car insurance, parking and maintenance; and having more freedom to go about your city whenever you want. In addition, there’s the lesser-seen benefit of minimizing social class differences. Whether someone is rich or poor, everyone rolls up to work, school, and even the club on similar looking omafiets (translated to granny bikes).
