One public transport card for the Netherlands
In the Netherlands, the public transport (OV) chip card has gradually replaced paper tickets, which until then had been the conventional national method. By mid-2009, an additional eight areas were scheduled to transition to OV chip cards, with the final eight areas scheduled to transition in 2010. Before September 2008, the development and roll-out had a local focus. Our role in this process (from September 2008 to October 2010) was to manage the implementation and facilitate the sharing of knowledge among the parties involved on a national basis. This extended to all areas using the OV chip card and those that will be using it card in the future. The project focused on technique, distribution (points of sale) and pricing.
