The rule is: ‘1 payment medium = 1 passenger’. The international financial sector has introduced this as a safeguard. All public transport services adhere to this rule, which helps to prevent disputes from arising, for instance as a result of accidentally paying twice for a journey.
You can pay contactlessly for a fellow-passenger, but you need to do so with a different medium. Besides a contactless debit card, the following payment media are also possible:
- A virtual version of the debit or credit card in Apple Pay or Google Pay and/or a wearable
- A contactless credit or prepaid card
If you have a joint bank account, the two account holders can each use their own medium to pay, giving rise to separate charges. There are some other alternatives:
- Use a 10-journey Lijnkaart or a 50-journey Lijnkaart and scan it several times within two minutes at the yellow scanner.
- Buy multiple sms- or m-tickets.
