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 or Zuid Strawinsky station

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