Bus in The Netherlands

Thing you need to know about bus in Netherlands:

1. Almost all the bus final destination is city centraal.
2. You come in from front door and exit from back door of the bus.
3. The bus always come on time, so make sure you already in the bus halte 5 minutes before schedule.
4. To see Bus schedule you can see in 9292OV. I will show you how to plan your journey using this website in other page.
5. You can buy ticket or using OV Chipcard (information about OV Chipcard in other pages) or 1.20-1.60 euro to the bus driver. Do not  give 100 euro or 50 euro to the bus driver, he/she  doesn’t have change to return your money.
6. It is not allowed to smoke, eat and drink in the bus. One time in Utrecht,I came to a bus with a cup of coffee, the bus driver did not allow me to get in until I finish my drink.
7. To make the bus stop, press the red button. Me and my ex housemate in Deventer, for the first time ride a bus to our home, and we screamed stop to the driver, the bus doesn’t stop 😀 so make sure you press the red button, and see the “stop” light behind the bus driver’s seat turn on red.
