Service provision for transport concessions

Multiple carriers operate on the Dutch rail network. Via procurement, they acquire transport concessions for sharing the network. Sometimes, when a concession period ends, a change of carrier takes place. If another carrier takes over a route that was previously run by NS Reizigers, then NS Reizigers will provide this carrier with certain services.

Which services are provided?

This service provision may involve the use of:

  • The NS ticket machines (ET2006/ET2006+)
  • Station layout formula Managed Station Access (Beheerste Toegang Stations (BTS)) for shared stations
  • NS card readers (CiCo) and associated infrastructure
  • Service- & Alarm posts (SA)
  • Route- and Pricing Web Service (WRP)
