Regional buses

No more cash in the night bus

Starting on the night of 31 January into 1 February, it will no longer be possible to use cash to pay for a ticket in the GVB night buses. Pay for your night bus trip using your e-purse balance on your OV-chipkaart, or pay for your ticket beforehand.

Compensation for metro disruption

On Monday 2 and Wednesday 4 January, large scale disruptions occurred on all metro routes. This may have caused you to incur extra expenses using tram, bus or train. We are very unhappy about this and offer our deepest apologies for the inconvenience.

We would like to explain how you can request a refund for the additional expenses.

PIN payments on the bus

You can pay using your PIN card on some bus routes. We will begin with some buses on route 33 in Amsterdam Noord and quickly add more buses. Mayor Van der Laan was the first to use his PIN card on the bus. This received a lot of attention from the media.   

GVB webshop
