Metro
Amsterdam has four metro routes stopping at 52 metro stations and that travel over more than 120 km of track. The metro connects Amsterdam in a speedy and safe manner.

Bike taxi
Bike taxis are a new kind of urban gondola and the perfect way to get around Amsterdam. No air pollution. No noise, apart from the odd squeak and the occasional bell ring. No hassle. Bike taxis are three-wheeled post-modern style rickshaws with open windows and fluorescent sides that carry up to two passengers. Originally a German design, they are pedal-powered and come with two small batteries to enable the driver to steer over Amsterdam’s infamous bridges or to carry extra heavy passengers.

For more information on bike taxis, please visit www.wielertaxi.nl. For reservations: 06 28247550. Standard prices for hire are €10 for up to 15 minutes and €20 for 30 minutes. All bike taxis run from 10:00 am to 1:00 am.

CYCLING
Amsterdam is perfectly set up for getting on your bike - there are 400 km (250 miles) of dedicated cycle lanes. For expats the bicycle becomes a cheap and essential way of getting around town... and it will keep you fit!

AIRPORT
Schiphol international airport lies 17km (11 miles) to the south west of Amsterdam. Probably the very best way to get into the city centre is by train which takes 15 to 20 minutes - Schiphol has a railway station which runs directly under the airport.

You can also reach Amsterdam centre by bus, shuttle bus or taxi cab.

Schiphol to Amsterdam by Train: Trains leave from Schiphol to Amsterdam Central station up to 10 times per hour between 06:00 am and 00:30 am. There is also a night train service which runs once an hour on the hour between 01:00 am and 05:00 am.

One-way tickets (2013 prices) cost €3.90 standard 2nd class or €6.60 in 1st class - this is the full fare (vol tarief). Do not purchase the discount (korting) fare unless you hold a NS Dutch rail discount card. Do not buy a return ticket (twice the price) unless you are coming back to the airport on the same day.

Schiphol to Amsterdam by Public Bus: Red "Schiphol Sternet" buses (operated by Connexxion) run from the bus stop area just outside Schiphol Plaza / main station hall. Bus 197 goes to Amsterdam Marnixstraat every 15 minutes with stops at Museumplein and Leidseplein. The bus costs €4.00 one-way and the journey takes just over 30 minutes. Buses operate from 05:00 am to 00:30 am.

Night bus service N97 Niteliner runs hourly during the night between Schiphol Plaza and Marnixstraat. Tickets also cost €4.50 single.

Taxis: Private taxi cabs in the Netherlands are not cheap - the trip to the centre of Amsterdam will cost around €40.00 - €50.00 and will only be economical with 3 or 4 passengers. The taxi rank is just outside the station hall to the left. You can choose whichever taxi you want - you are not obliged to take the first car.
