Den Haag (1)

The Netherlands is introducing a national smart card system which is not visitor friendly. We walked a long way to buy a paper day ticket from this office which was closed at 9:45 despite the notice saying that it opened at 9:00. We then had to walk all the way back to the Tourist Information office which was open and did have day tickets.

There are two types of tram in Den Haag. These step entrance cars operates most of the services.

These low floor cars are wider and are confined to two routes.

The fares seem very high. A single ride costs 2.40 Euros and a day ticket costs £6.80 Euros but is restricted to the central and adjacent zones. Many tram routes are quite long and it is very easy to overide into outer zones which would doubtless incur a stiff fine.
