  • Bus

    The public transport system in Amsterdam is managed by GVB or Gemeentevervoerbedrijf. GVB has a widespread bus network, connecting all major spots and tourists attractions in the city. Opting for public transport is a convenient and cost effective way to travel within the city. It is recommended that you buy a public transportation pass for the duration of your stay as it allows you unlimited rides in all modes of public transport like buses, ferries and trams.

  • Taxi

    Amsterdam is best explored by bike, foot or public transport. You can hire a taxi to travel within the city though it is not the best way courtesy the many one-way roads and poor parking facilities here.

  • Rail

    Trains are mostly used to commute from the airport to the main city. Schiphol International Airport has a direct rail rink to the main city and trains depart every ten minutes from here.

  • Ferry

    The Canal Bus does several rounds between Centraal Station and the prominent Rijksmuseum and can be used as a convenient hop-on hop-off service by tourists. Ferries also depart from Centraal Station for Amsterdam-Noord frequently.

  • Tram

    Experience the old world charm of Amsterdam as you go around the city in the blue-and-gray trams. Most of the 16 tram routes in the city are to and from Centraal Station.
