The university of Eindhoven declared, they will only hire females and no males at all for many jobs. Later the decision was cancelled by the highest Dutch court. But still anyway, a lot of sexists are in the city!!! Unless you are a female it is not recommended.

The price of a single bus ticket is 4.64€. This is the price of "single ticket" monthly unlimited is 126€. With a chipcard you can benefit of cheaper costs due it considers only number of stops.

Price for one way ticket is not 4 euro in Eindhoven. This is only if you buy from the driver. People use a chipcard instead. The tarif is between 1 to 2 euro depending in the distance.
