What’s New

Version 7.7.0

Based on your feedback we worked hard on new features and improvements. In this update:

• We made some design adjustments in the Journey Planner screen to improve the flow of planning a journey.
• If you plan a journey with a stopover (via), this destination is now shown between your starting point and destination.
• You can now buy the Jongeren Dagkaart (Young Persons Day ticket) in the ticket shop.
• You can now report nuisance or aggression via the "More" menu.
• Occasionally, something went wrong when setting up notifications on your route. This issue has been resolved.
• The button for deleting your previously selected stations is working again.
• The correct icons (bus/train/metro/tram) are shown in the travel advice.
• The app no longer asks for your location immediately upon first start-up, but only when it is applicable.
• When you removed the check-in/out widget from the home screen, it occasionally happened that it came back automatically the next time. That has now been resolved.
• Finally, a few minor bug fixes. In Dutch we'd say the app is running like a train again, but let's just say… everything works properly.

Let us know what you think. We'd love to get your feedback.

Check in with phone

I think there must be a simple with to connect personal ov chip card with the app do that you can simple check in and out with you phone. It sounds simple but would be one of the best feature.

Great for tourists who want to take a train

This app is easy to use and much more comprehensive than the transit support in maps (or google maps). All the information you need is right at your fingertips. The only minor issue is that the disruption information is only in Dutch (I just copy/paste into google translate).
