As of today, the Dutch Railways offers TIER electric shared bicycles for business travelers in the NS app. TIER bicycles are available at various locations in Eindhoven, Veldhoven, Utrecht, Nieuwegein, Amersfoort and Maarssen. NS makes it even easier and faster for travelers to travel from door to door by offering all kinds of transport in one app.
A business traveler can use the 'Nearby' function to look in the NS app to see where a TIER shared bicycle is located nearby. A traveler can also start and end a bicycle ride in the NS app. You can view your journeys in Mijn NS Zakelijk or NS Go. Invoicing is done automatically via the employer.
NS expects that later this year all travelers will be able to plan, book and pay for TIER's shared bicycles via the NS app. Travel is rarely just from station to station. The Dutch Railways wants to help travelers with a door-to-door journey that is as easy as possible and therefore looks further than just the train.
With the addition of TIER, business travelers can now also easily cycle to the station and use public transport. According to the NS travelers can use more than 22.000 public transport bicycles, available at 295 locations. 5.100 electric shared scooters from Check in nine cities. More than 500.000 bicycle parking spaces. 270 P+R locations at stations and 2.600 (electric) shared cars from Greenwheels spread over 165 municipalities and at 135 stations.
