Line D is a metro/lightrail line in Simvliet. It is the newest line and runs from Strandboulevard towards Simvliet Centraal.

Rolling stock

The line is currently served by the RSG3 stock, with some HSG3 units used as backup. During the day, two units are coupled together. In the evening on Sundays to Thursdays single units are used. The trains operate out of the depots at Strandboulevard and Bergpark. Trains starting and ending at Bergpark have to take the route of line C between Simvliet Centraal and De Bergen.

Services

The off-peak service consists of 6 trains per hour running between Strandboulevard and Simvliet Centraal. During the peak hours the frequency is increased to 10 trains per hour. During the early morning and late evening there are some trains running between Strandboulevard and Hageningen Noord that reverse at the siding over there. This is due to the long distance between the Simvliet depot at Bergpark and Hageningen and the desire for early and late services within the city of Hageningen itself.

During the weekend on Friday and Saturday night, there is a late night service between Strandboulevard and Simvliet Centraal running every 20 minutes.
