Passing stations with closed gates

Gates are now coming into operation at more and more stations. The aim is to improve safety at the station and in the train and reduce the number of fare dodgers. Would you like to use a station's facilities without travelling? Then you can apply for a Station Passagepas.

Apply for a Station Passagepas

You can apply for a Station Passagepas for the following stations: Alkmaar, Amersfoort, Amsterdam Amstel, Deventer, Dordrecht, Eindhoven, Gouda, Leiden, Rotterdam-Zuid, Sittard, Station Haarlem (for library members), Weesp and Zwolle.

Below you can find out how to pass through a station with closed gates and how to apply for a Station Passagepas.

I am a passenger

OV-chipkaart with balance

Anyone who has an OV-chipkaart can pass through a station with closed gates. You will need to have sufficient balance on your OV-chipkaart (€ 10 or € 20). If you check in then check out again within 60 minutes, you won't pay anything. The same applies to holders of an NS-Business Card.

OV-chipkaart without saldo

If the balance on your OV-chipkaart is zero or insufficient, you can load a one-off station passage product onto your OV-chipkaart at the NS Ticket Machine. This lets you spend 60 minutes on that same day at the station where you loaded the product onto your OV-chipkaart.

No OV-chipkaart

Don't have an OV-chipkaart? Then you should apply for a Station Passagepas.

I work for ProRail, NS Reizigers, NS Stations or I am a tenant

You can apply for a Station Passagepas if your work for ProRail or NS Stations or if you're a tenant of NS Stations. Simply use the online application procedure. If you're carrying out work for NS Reizigers through a client, ask your client to apply for you.

If you have any other questions, please contact your client or call NS Customer Service on 030-7515155 (available 24 hours a day).

Passagepas for other train companies

Not just the NS, but also other transport companies make use of train stations. We offer a number of solutions to ensure that the staff and passengers of these other companies can get through gates when they are closed. For instance a Station Passagepas for staff.
