Rotterdamse Elektrische Tram (RET) (English: Rotterdam Electric Tram) is the main public transport operator in Rotterdam, Netherlands. It started in 1905 when they took over the city tram lines from RTM (Rotterdamsche Tramweg Maatschappij). It currently operates 35 bus lines, 11 tram lines and five metro/light rail lines in Rotterdam and the surrounding municipalities.
RET used to employ the National Tariff System, like other local transport companies in the Netherlands. On 29 January 2009, metro trips switched to using an OV-chipkaart, and bus and tram trips followed on 11 February 2010.
