train costs 3.90 euros per person each way; sorry I do not know the cost of the bus, but I think there is only 10 or 20 cents between so cost doesnt seem to be an issue, just pick which option is the most convenient to your final destination.

Have fun

The anonymous Chipcard is NOT suitable for 98% of the tourists due to the high overhead and other useless complexities. Hence the price given for a paper ticket, close to 4 euro, is appropiate for the tourists. Sorry...

All the best,
