Every year, residents of the municipality of Eindhoven who are eligible for the Meedoen contribution can sign up to travel by bus for free for a year. Eindhoven residents who have received a letter about this via the municipality of Eindhoven can register before 16 January. You must be 18 years or older and live in Eindhoven.
Have you been awarded the Participation Contribution for the year 2022? Then you can sign up to travel by bus for free in 2023 with the season ticket 'Dalvrij Eindhoven'. Dalvrij Eindhoven is valid on working days after 09.00:XNUMX and all day on weekends and public holidays. You must apply for free bus travel every year. For free bus travel you need a valid personal OV chip card (with passport photo). You can therefore not use the anonymous public transport chip card (the blue one) for free travel. You travel free in Eindhoven on the following line numbers:
- 2 through 10,12,14 through 17, 20,21,114
- 18 (to Witvenseweg) and 19 (to Koningshof)
- 321 and 322 (until Gerwen)
- 400 to 408
Recently alderman Monique Esselbrugge said that there will be an investigation into the possibilities of free bus transport in Eindhoven. The research into this will be carried out next year, at the request of political party 50PLUS. Traveling for free on public transport has many advantages. Fewer people will travel by car, which means fewer traffic jams and fewer emissions of harmful substances. And with the rising costs of today, more and more people are getting into financial problems and can no longer afford public transport.
