Travel - Public Transport

Public transport is running according to normal timetables again. Do you need to make use of public transport? Here you can read everything you need to know about traveling.

Protective mask
A protective mask (non-medical) is mandatory on the train as well as on the bus. This does not apply to platforms and stops. Wear it over your mouth and nose and touch it as little as possible. After your journey, wash your hands thoroughly if possible or disinfect them, so you're good to go!

Rush
It’s not as busy in public transport as usual. If it is busier than expected, feel free to wait for the next bus or train. Take a look at our public transport overview for handy apps to plan your trip. 

Seating
Do you have your protective mask on and it's not too crowded? Check! Then it's time to hop on. Normally you enter the bus at the front, now the middle/back door will open. On the bus, you are expected to leave as much space as possible between you and your fellow passengers. On the train, you keep the 1.5-meter distance where possible. For example by choosing a spot at the window if possible. 

Bicycle rental
Cycling is great transportation while in the city. Want to rent a bike? This can easily be done in the cycle shed at the central station or ask for advice at Eindhoven Tourist Information. Whatever option you choose, your own safety comes first.
