Public transport


Public transport

In Amsterdam, you can easily come anywhere by public transport. Especially the trams are very accessible and drive frequently.

For payment of the public transport you can:

  1. Buy a ticket when you board.
    But easier, faster, and (with a few trips) also cheaper is with the OV Chip Card. 
  2. OV Chip Card, the official public transport card valid throughout the Netherlands.
    You buy an empty/anonymous chip card for € 7,50 which you can top-up with your bank card/ credit card or cash. You then check-in and check out yourself when boarding and departing and pay only for the road traveled.

Above are links to a useful website for planning your trips, more information about the OV Chip Card, and the location of the Central Station Amsterdam, the city's main transport hub.
