INFO Public Transportation in Amsterdam:


Travelling within Amsterdam by public transport is straightforward and convenient. The extensive network is operated by GVB and connects the city's neighbourhoods by train, tram, metro, bus and ferry.


Unlimited use of trams, buses and metro with the public transport chip card

In Amsterdam and beyond, the public transport chip card (OV-chipkaart) is used for travel on trams, buses and metros. The most convenient option for visitors is a disposable one-hour card or day card (valid for one to seven days). These tickets can be bought from the conductor or driver on the tram or bus, and are valid across the whole network from the time of purchase, allowing you to take as many journeys as you choose within your chosen time-frame.
