The petitioner claims that the Dutch authorities apply a discrepancy in the treatment of EU-students as compared to Dutch students, when it comes to free travel. She points at the free travel card -available for Dutch students- on all busses, trams and long-distance trains within the country, while other EU-students only receive this benefit when they comply with an additional requirement of proved working time. The petitioner claims that the 56 hours required working time per month is a hard condition to fulfil as a full-time student. She asks for equal treatment for EU-students in this regard.
