Getting around Tilburg is pretty simple, but here are a few tips and suggestions. The old town is in fact so small, that you can easily get everywhere you need to go on foot. If you have to go a bit further, we recommend renting a bike. Travelling to farther destinations by bus or train requires an OV-chipkaart. The OV-chipkaart is the new means of payment for the entire public transport system in The Netherlands. The smart card is the size of a bank card and contains an invisible chip. The OV-chipkaart can be loaded with credit in euros with which you can travel anywhere within the country, or with another travel product such as a single or season ticket. You can also choose a personal, anonymous or disposable card. The personal OV-chipkaart can be purchased online or from the city public transport company. The anonymous OV-chipkaart can be bought at the ticket office and vending machines at the station. The disposable card can be purchased at the station vending machine. This card allows the holder to travel immediately, but it can't be re-charged with another than the original travel product. You have to load travel credits onto the OV-chipkaart or it won't be valid for travel. You can add travel products to your card at the station vending machine or at your public transport company’s ticket office.
