The some 700 thousand holders of an NS discount hours card will lose their right to discount in the evening rush hour from 2021. NS is cutting various subscription types, reducing the number form 22 to 11, and the evening rush hour discount is one of those to go, NOS reports.

According to NS, cutting discounts during evening rush hour - between 4:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. - will result in fewer travelers during this time and thus more available seats. Currently 1 in 14 evening rush hour travelers has a discount subscription.

Lidl is taking on the fight against food waste by experimenting with selling products for only 25 cents on their expiry date. The experiment, called 'Don't waste me, I'm still good', launched in 20 stores in the Gooi region and around Amersfoort this week, RTL Nieuws reports.

The experiment includes products like bread, meat and 2 kilogram boxes of fruit and vegetables. "With meat we of course also tell people to use it immediately or freeze it", a Lidl spokesperson said to the broadcaster.

NS wants to reduce crowds in rush hour trains by making train tickets for outside rush hour cheaper. That will cost 35 million euros that NS does not have. CEO Roger van Boxtel is therefore turning to the government, RTL Nieuws reports.

Passengers that travel outside rush hour should pay 40 percent less for their tickets, Van Boxtel thinks. This will encourage people to avoid trains during their busiest point and thereby result in a better distribution of passengers.
