Trains

Traveling through The Netherlands by train is fast, comfortable and very affordable. Holland has a dense, efficient railway network with modern, fast trains that interconnect cities several times an hour. Fast trains in combination with short distances make for short traveling time. For example: a train ride from Schiphol Airport to Amsterdam, leaving at least every 15 minutes, will only take you 16 minutes. Do you want to make a trip from Amsterdam to Rotterdam? Within 40 minutes you'll get off the train right in the city center!

Metro and Tramway

The cities of Utrecht, The Hague, Amsterdam and Rotterdam offer transportation by tram. Amsterdam and Rotterdam also have a subway system. Most tram and subway services start at 6AM and run until approximately midnight. The subway trains and trams are usually faster than the city buses.

Taxis

You can book a taxi in advance with local taxi companies. In some larger cities you can also hail a taxi on the street or at one of the taxi ranks. Taxis can be recognized by the blue license plates with black letters and digits and the taxi sign on top of the roof. In addition to the normal taxi, there is the treintaxi (train‑taxi). The treintaxi is a typical Dutch form of transport. You share the taxi with others and therefore travel at a reduced rate. Treintaxi takes you to and from 59 railway stations in the Netherlands.
