I once said that trains in the Netherlands were ok as long as you don't need to go anywhere, and only after I said it realised how much this described them completely failing at their purpose.

What I meant is that it's a problem if you depend on them, like for getting to work (not just on time, but at all). If you are just planning an optional trip outside of rush hour and are ok with going somewhere completely different instead, then it's fine.

I would appreciate it very much if public transit in NL had its shit together
