Bus Passes

I'm just curious if they "punch" the bus passes when you use them or are they electronic? Is that the same for student passes?

    All Dutch buses usualy use Stripen karte, wich driver stamps on your entrance. The students can buy monthly pass, wich have to be presented with photograf card, so driver can see thet is your card/pass.
    You can chek all about passes www.veolia.nl they run the buses in all of Linburg and in few other states in The Netherlands.
    On entrance you just have to show it to the driver.
    Some buses in Eindhoven have electronic barcode reades in the bus wich reads the barcode on your pass, thus validating your journey.

    Some places in the Netherlands (and eventually everybody) are switching to an electronic system, the OV-chipcard, see http://www.ov-chipkaart.nl/faq/?taal=en

    Here you can find some info on the Strippenkaarten mentioned abive: vbn-bv.nl/content.php?pagina...
