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.
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:

The first check-in and check-out zone can be found at the bike storage facility at Amsterdam Central, Amsterdam Amstel, Amsterdam Zuid Strawinsky station, Almere station, Gouda 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.
