Unable to pay in cash on the spot? If so, you will be granted a deferred payment option if you are able to identify yourself.
Correction fee and boarding fee
If we don't know which stations you boarded or left the train, for example because you forgot to check in or out and didn't correct it in time, then we will charge you a correction fee or a boarding fee. See which situation applies to you.
