Management NS parking facilities

Each parking facility offers the traveler the opportunity to rent a public transport bicycle, to store a bicycle or to have it repaired. All NS parking facilities that RataPlan manages to be reflected on the page NS bicycle & storage.
The NS bicycle shops and parking facilities are staffed by regular employees and employees with a distance to the labor market. A number of employees do this in combination with a training. This makes the step to a regular job easier. In addition, there is collaboration with various social work companies throughout the Netherlands.
