Guarded bicycle storage and service

Many major stations feature guarded bicycle storage facilities. An attendant is usually on duty during opening hours. Guarded bicycle storage facilities are always open from 15 minutes before the first train in the morning until 15 minutes after the last train. Most facilities also have a Fiets & Service shop for bicycle repairs and accessories. In some cases, you may also be able to store your moped or scooter in the facility.

Choose the service that suits you best.

First 24 hours of storage free

Guarded storage facilities increasingly allow you to store your bicycle for free for the first 24 hours. See the overview of stations where this offer applies.

Paid storage

If you only store your bicycle occasionally, then you could choose to purchase a day ticket. Some storage facilities also offer 10-use tickets or monthly season tickets. All can be purchased at the storage facility.

Storage on account: the convenience of monthly billing.

If you do not want to constantly have to pay to store your bicycle, or if you only store it occasionally, we suggest that you use  Storage on account. This service allows you to pay for storage with direct debit at the end of the month. Sign up for the service for free.

Storage with your personal OV-chipkaart

More and more bicycle storage facilities, including those at Amsterdam Amstel, Arnhem, Leeuwarden and Utrecht Jaarbeursplein, allow you to store your bicycle with your OV-chipkaart. More OV-chipkaart storage facilities will be added in the near future, allowing you to pay for storage with Storage on account or with your debit card. 

Do you have an NS-Business  Card?

In order to use the guarded storage facility, you must have your employer's permission. For more information, click here.
