Trans Link Systems (TLS), a joint venture based in Amersfoort, was founded in 2001 by the five largest Public Transport Operators in the Netherlands. Connexxion (the trans-regional bus service), GVB (Amsterdam’s public transport operator), HTM (the public transport group for The Hague), NS (Netherlands Railways) and RET (Rotterdam’s public transport operator). It services all other public transport organisations. TLS, as an independent governing body, facilitates the introduction of the national OV-chipkaart system in the Netherlands. The OV-chipkaart is a single contactless smart card for public transport costs that can be used on any bus, train, tram, ferry and metro within the Netherlands.
