Accessible public transport
Accessible or inaccessible
We want to transport everyone as comfortably as possible. GVB works hard to make our public transportation accessible for the entire public. All new trams and buses have a low entryway, which makes makes boarding even easier for the disabled. In addition, more and more stops are raised and made wheelchair accessible.
Because not all stops are as accessible, we indicate which stops ARE accessible.
For timetables and the different types of trams, buses and metro it is just the opposite: because most trams, most buses and the entire metro are accessible, we indicate per route in the timetables which stops are NOT accessible.
Accessible stops: the raised and thus accessible stops are indicated on the routes shown in the timetables (route folders
and on the internet) and in the bus departure times
(stops and on the internet). We also designate the type of design of the stops on our map, the GVB Route network map.
Inaccessible runs: the runs that are not accessible are indicated in the timetables
and on the bus departure times
Wheelchairs in our public transportation
The route folders and stop departure times indicate the runs with vehicles that are NOT
accessible. Accessible vehicles are used on other runs.
Wheelchair users always take precedence over strollers!
The wheelchair accessible trams of the "older type" have a spot in the lower middle section for a wheelchair. The new Combino trams have a wheelchair ramp and the spot for the wheelchair is located beside the conductor. The spots in the trams are indicated by a sticker.
For both tram and bus, the wheelchair spot is also the baby buggy spot. Please remember that a wheelchair always takes precedence over a stroller.
These new regulations for traveling with strollers in our public transportation are applicable as of 1 January 2007. Click here for the new travel regulations
