The new GVB timetable goes into effect on 1 January 2012. It did not go into effect on the nationally prescribed date of 11 December because we have a new contract with the City Region of Amsterdam that takes effect on 1 January. There are a lot of changes this time.
Amsterdam has never stopped changing. New neighborhoods are built with new streets and lanes. Existing areas change their character. Businesses are launched or move. In brief, the city is alive and continuously changes. This affects the need for public transportation.
In times of financial cutbacks, public transportation must adjust the provided services as much as possible to the actual needs of travelers. We do this by offering new routes, adjusting routes, and implementing new departure times. Sometimes we must say farewell to a particular route.
What does not change is that GVB continues to connect everybody and everything in Amsterdam.
See all changes.
