NS Business Card Overview

On this page you will find information about the use of the NS. Business Card.

The NS Business Card (NS-BC) is an OV-chip card UT employees can use for business travel by public transport (Metro, train, bus, etc.) within the Netherlands and in some cases commuter travel.
