How to get along with the public transport in Amsterdam? ? ? ?

Traveling within Amsterdam is easy! GVB is the public transport company of Amsterdam. There are different ways to discover the Amsterdam’ neighborhoods; you can go by tram, metro, train and bus. ? ? ?


There is an option to buy a public transport chip card (OV-chipkaart), this is used for traveling on trams, buses and metro. The best option for visitors is a disposable one-hour card or day card. Day tickets cannot be bought from the driver on the bus, so you need to purchase the day tickets in advance. Tickets 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.
