Dutch to abolish cash payments for public transport | International Railway Journal

xxx

Public transport companies in the Netherlands are planning to abolish cash payment for bus and tram tickets, following a significant rise in robberies. By 2018 it will only be possible to pay for travel using the national OV Chipkaart contactless smartcard, a smartphone, or a contactless bank card.

Eliminating cash payments will require significant investment - each tram and bus will need to be equipped with a payment terminal at an estimated cost of €1500 per vehicle.
