Where did you find out that the service would be free that day?
all the check in machines on the platform were closed and had a sign saying the intercity is supplement free
There is a high speed intercity between Amsterdam-Schiphol-Rotterdam-Breda, called Intercity Direct.
That train doesn't drive along The Hague.
Because it is a direct train between a.o. Schiphol and Rotterdam, saving a lot of time in travelling, normally a supplement for that train is obliged.
And as you know, supplement means that you have to pay an additional amount on the normal price.
For one reasen or another it was decided that that Intercity Direct was supplement free, last Saturday.
Bur the normal fare price had to be paid, just as you paid the normal price for your trip to The Hague.
By the way, the check in machines you saw on the platform are machines you can buy that supplement only.
Hope I made things clear.
