Access for residents

Several stations in the Netherlands perform an important function as pedestrian routes to the other side of the railway. Residents living near these stations can request a Passagepas to pass easily through the stations without using an OV-chipkaart.


For whom is this pass intended?

This pass is intended for people living near the stations Alkmaar, Amersfoort, Amsterdam Amstel, Deventer, Dordrecht, Eindhoven, Gouda, Leiden, Rotterdam-Zuid, Sittard, Haarlem (for members of the Library), Weesp and Zwolle. Eligibility for a Passagepas is determined based on one's post code, in collaboration with the local municipal government.

Click on the 'Passagepas aanvragen' link to enter our web portal, where you can order a pass. These passes are available free of charge for eligible pass holders. The passage desk will process your request and send you the products within 5-10 working days. 

Using the Toegangspas

The Passagepas is issued on an individual basis, and may only be used to gain access to the specific station for which the pass was requested. After passing through the access gates, you will have 59 minutes to pass through the station.
