Free public transport for poor Amsterdam pensioners

Pensioners in Amsterdam with an annual income of no more than €15,112, will be able to travel free on the city’s public transport system from September.

The free transport experiment will run until the end of the year. Pensioners, whatever their income, already have free public transport in several other cities, including Dordrecht, Rotterdam and Nijmegen.
