Crowding indicator

The crowding indicator in our NS app shows you the number of people you can expect on a specific train. This is represented using 1, 2 or 3 figures. A red exclamation point next to the figures indicates that the train is shorter than originally planned, so it may be more crowded than usual. That way, you can see if an earlier or later train may be less crowded, so that you can have a more comfortable journey.


By showing 1, 2 or 3 figures, the app indicates how crowded a train is expected to be:

  • 1 figure: more than enough seating available
  • 2 figures: seating available (but limited)
  • 3 figures: little or no seating available
