To travel by public transport in the Netherlands, you need a ticket known as an OV-Chipkaart. You can buy an OV-Chipkaart with a starting price of €7.50 from ticket machines at larger railway stations, from newsagents and a large number of supermarkets in the Netherlands. It’s also possible to buy a slightly more expensive single-use day ticket from the ticket machines at NS railway stations. Before you get on the train, you need to check in at the station/on the platform by holding your ticket against one of the card-readers. Remember: you also need to check out again at one of the card-readers when you arrive at your destination. If you are travelling by bus, tram or metro, you check in and out as you get on and off.
