The Public Transport companies in South Holland and Zeeland introduced together with other provinces and the Metropolitan region Rotterdam – The Hague a new travel product: Travel Bonus. With the Travel Bonus the travelers can travel with one product at the different transport companies (Arriva, Connexxion, HTM, HTMbuzz, RET en Veolia) and pay their travel costs afterwards. In case of travel costs, more than € 75 travel per month, the traveler will receive a €10 discount. This new travel product is requested by the Dutch Government to develop more alternatives for the smart card and the subscriptions.
Regularly, travelers have to use different modalities of different PTO’s within South Holland and Zeeland. So, they have to purchase different subscriptions. Travel Bonus offers a solution. With Travel Bonus people are not stuck with one subscription form. The traveler does not pay a fixed amount per month, but pays per kilometre. Less travel means less cost and travelling more means receiving a bonus. Travel bonus can also be used on an anonymous Public Transport smartcard and can be shared. This means more freedom-happiness, and means more convenience for travelers. Travel bonus does not work with a subscription or a discount product that is already on the Public Transport smart card.
