On-board staff is there for you

As from Monday, 19 June 2017, tickets will no longer be sold on any HSL trains or VR’s commuter trains. In future, you are required to have a ticket before you board the train. Our conductors continue to travel on board with you, and you will find them on board the train and on platforms. They will advise, help and guide you just like they have done before and may also inspect your ticket. Conductors will in future be moving in pairs and there will always be a conductor on board night-trains. The train drivers will keep you up-to-date with the progress of the journey.


Our on-board staff have the right to remove passengers travelling without a ticket from the train. The ticket inspector will charge anyone travelling without an appropriate ticket an inspection fee and the price of the ticket. The inspection fee is €80.
