New check-in and check-out zone

Park your bike in our bicycle storage facilities even quicker with the new check-in and check-out zone.

How it works

  • Walk your bike to the new check-in and check-out zone.
  • Tap your OV-chipkaart on the display.
  • You'll be greenlighted and be let through.

Do you see a red light when you check out?
This means you had your bike in storage for more than 24 hours. You can pay at the same kiosk.

If you have an NS Flex subscription or a Stallen op Rekening season ticket, your account will be charged automatically and you'll be greenlit right away

In this video, we'll explain exactly how the new check-in and check-out zone works (in Dutch)

Park even faster with a bike tag

A bike tag will let you check in and out automatically. A bike tag is a chip that is mounted to your bike and linked to your OV-chipkaart. With a bike  tag, you won't need an OV-chipkaart to enter or exit our bicycle storage facilities.

Get your tag in the storage facilities
We give out a free bike tag when you purchase an annual season ticket for bike storage or Stallen op Rekening. The bike tag can also be purchased separately for € 2,50. To get yours, go to the bicycle storage facility at:

  • Amsterdam Amstel, Central, Zuid and RAI station
  • Almere Centrum station
  • Breda station
  • Ede-Wageningen station

Frequently asked questions

  • Where can I find the new check-in and check-out zone?

    The first check-in and check-out zone can be found at the bike storage facility at Amsterdam Central, Amsterdam Amstel, Amsterdam RAI, Amsterdam Zuid station, Almere station, Ede-Wageningen station, Gouda station, Breda station, Tilburg station  and Zwolle station.

  • How do I get a bike tag?

    If you'd like a bike tag on your bike, please go to a bike storage attendant. They'll mount the tag on your bike for free if you have a bike storage subscription. Or you can buy one for €2.50  When they're done, you'll be able to check your bike in and out automatically just by walking through the gates.

  • Can anyone get a bike tag?

    Yes, anyone can get a bike tag. If you have an annual season ticket for our bike storage facilities or have Stallen op Rekening, we'll give you a free bike tag. If you don't have a season ticket or Stallen op Rekening, you can buy a bike tag for € 2.50.

  • I don't have an OV-chipkaart. Can I park my bike?

    If you don't have an OV-chipkaart, you can ask the bike storage attendant for a loan pass to check in and out. After checking out, please return the loan pass to the bike storage attendant. You do need an OV-chipkaart to request a bike tag.

  • What about my privacy?

    The tag only tracks how long you parked your bike. It uses the same technology as your OV-chipkaart.

  • Who can I contact when I have questions or problems?

    For other questions about or problems with the new check-in and check-out zone and the bike tag, please go to a bike storage attendant. They'll do everything they can to help you out. You can also contact the NS Customer Service for a helping hand.
