Checking in and out on Breng train

Remember to always check in and out! This also applies to passengers with a subscription. Also make sure you check in and out at the right card reader at Arnhem Centraal Station.
When travelling with an OV-chipkaart, you must check in at the departure station and check out at the arrival station. There are card readers on the platforms of all stations. You will recognise a card reader as it has an OV-chipkaart logo as well as the logo of your carrier on it.

Are you changing trains in Arnhem Central Station to/from an NS train? Then you first have to check out with the carrier that brought you and then check in with the carrier that you are going to continue your journey with.
Please be aware of which card reader you use. NS and Arriva/Breng card readers are located at Arnhem Centraal Station. When travelling with the Breng train, use the card readers with Arriva/Breng logos. Not the ones with the NS logo!
