Public transportation tickets:
Amsterdam is serviced by an excellent public transport network comprising trams, buses and metro. Tickets should be purchased from a machine before travelling.
Guests planning on making extensive use of trams, buses and metro can also purchase an OV-Chipkaart. The advantage of doing so will be a considerably cheaper fare. This universal travel card can be charged with credit and used on all public transport services in Amsterdam. It can also be used on the trains, but only when credited with €20 or more. OV-Chipkaarts can be purchased from ticket offices at all stations, as well as automatic vending machines. They cost €7,50 and can be charged with credit at all stations and at some retail outlets (e.g. Albert Heijn).
