Amsterdam Schiphol Airport Buses AMS

There are various bus services from Schiphol Airport. Many local buses are available as well as private, more expensive buses that provide transport to most of Amsterdam’s hotels. The journey by bus is an economical option and the bus stops could be closer to your destination than the train stations.

The KLM shuttle and the Connexxion Schiphol Hotel Shuttle are bus services that will take you from Schiphol Airport to your hotel. The KLM shuttle offers services to 15 major hotels in Amsterdam. A passenger can make use of this service even if they did not arrive with a KLM flight. The Connexxion Schiphol Hotel Shuttle delivers travellers to more than 100 hotels between the hours of 06:00 am and 21:00 pm.

In Amsterdam you are able to make use of the excellent bus or tram service. To make use of this transportation, you will require a valid ticket. Even though tickets can be bought from the bus drivers or tram conductors, it is less expensive to buy a ‘strippenkaart’. Before entering the bus or tram you are able to validate the strip ticket by making use of the machines at metro stations or the yellow machines on the trams that do not have a conductor. The ‘strippenkaart’ works on the basis of how many different zones will be passed through during traveling. Route maps and zone tables displayed at the tram and bus shelters will help you to determine this information. Always validate one strip more than the number of zones you are traveling. For example, cancel two strips for a journey in one zone.

‘Strippenkaarts’ are available from supermarkets, post offices, tobacconists and the ticket office at the Central Station.

Reduced fare tickets are applicable to children between the ages of 4 and 11, as well as elderly citizens aged 65 years or older. These tickets can only be bought in advance of the trip. Babies travel for free.

One can purchase GVB tickets for public transportation. These are selected for 24, 48, 72 or 96 hours of usage and are valid for the night bus services. 12 buses serve all areas of Amsterdam during the night between the time of 00:30 and 07:30. If you do not have a GVB ticket, then single tickets can be purchased from the bus driver. One can use the night buses without being concerned for your safety, as they are all equipped with video surveillance cameras.

Make use of the Stop/Go bus if you are shopping or sightseeing in Amsterdam’s historic canal belt. This is a minibus service that has no specific bus stops along its route. You are able to instruct the driver to stop anywhere that you would like to get off. It runs the length of the Prinsengracht canal and literally circles the city with buses departing every 12 minutes, seven days a week.

The Stadsmobiel is a special service for disabled passengers or anyone over the age of 65 who does wish to wait at the regular bus or tram stops. To use this service a Travel pass or Escort pass is required. A carer or friend is able to join the passenger so long as they have a relevant pass as well. The Stadsmobiel will pick a passenger up from any point and deliver to any address specified. This service is also available to book in advance and drivers are happy to assist you on or off the bus.

At Schiphol Airport the public bases are located just across the street from the taxi rank and the trip to Amsterdam will take between 25 and 40 minutes.
