Public Transportation
General Information

Amsterdam provides an impressive public transport network including metros, buses, trams, ferries and trains to help you get around the capital.

Public Transport

Although the city centerís compact size means that most areas and sights are within walking distance of one another, Amsterdamís public transport network (GVB, a Dutch acronym) is efficient, reliable, inexpensive and widely used. One million passengers travel through the city by tram, bus, underground metro line and ferry every day.

By Bicycle

With 600,000 bicycles for Amsterdamís 750,000 residents, it seldom takes more than a few seconds before a bike zips passes by. Cycling is a way of life here; the Dutch use their bicycles as a means of everyday transportation. The 400 kilometers of bike paths in Amsterdam alone make it easy and safe for visitors to experience the city by bike for themselves.
