GETTING AROUND IN THE CITY OF UTRECHT


UTRECHT REGION PASS

The city of Utrecht provides passes, called the Utrecht Region Pass that can be coupled with your credit card. When this is done, you can use this pass to travel with all busses, trams and trains. With your pass, you can also rent OV-bikes: these are affordable, decent rental bikes that allow you to drive around like a Dutch citizen. You can read more about this pass on this website: https://utrechtregionpass.com/ Small side note, you can only pick up this pass in Utrecht itself.
