Getting around in Amsterdam:


Walking in Amsterdam is a good option, since the sights are close together. However, the Dutch favorite means of transport is the bicycle. You can rent one and explore the city in a different way, as the locals do. Public transport is efficient: the city has a large network of tram lines, buses lines and subway lines that will take you anywhere in the city.

 

The tram (cable car) is one of the most used means of transport in Amsterdam because it is very efficient. There are a total of 20 lines that go through the whole city from one end of the town to the other. The stops have their own signs, schedules and names of all stops. This is the most appropriate way to visit downtown. To use the cable cars, it is worth buying the OV-Chipkaart card, ranging in price according to the number of days of use. You can purchase a card at metro stations, vending machines or with the cable car driver or collector.

    The GVB cards (main municipal company of public transport) cost: 1 hour / €2.90, 1 day / €7.50, 2 days / €12.50, 3 days / €17.0 , 4 days / €21.50, 5 days / €26.50 , 6 days / €30.00 , 7 days / €33.00. They can be purchased at metro stations, the GVB stores, or with the driver or collector.
Overall, there are 41 bus lines running 24 hours. Municipal lines are operated by GVB and if you need to go to areas outside downtown this is the most appropriate means of transit. You can also use the GVB (OV-Chipkaart) card on buses.

Taking the subway is not very helpful for those who will just walk around downtown, the stations are so close together that it is more useful to walk. There are 4 subways lines in Amsterdam and the GVB card (OV- Chipkaart) is accepted.
