Applying for a carer’s public transport travel pass
If you cannot travel independently on public transport because of a disability, you can apply for an OV-Begeleiderskaart (carer’s public transport travel pass). The OV-Begeleiderskaart allows 1 travel companion to travel with you free of charge. You can use the pass on most trains, metros, trams and buses in the Netherlands.
