27 April: King's Day!

On King's Day, Thursday 27 April, it will be extremly busy again in Amsterdam. So busy that it will not be possible for our vehicles to pass through some streets and neighbourhoods.

GVB is happy to accommodate this situation. And, at the same time, continue to provide the best transportation possible. This will begin in the night before King's Day.
The details can be found on the King's Day web page.

Cashless public transport

As of Sunday 26 March, it is no longer possible to use cash to purchase a ticket on the bus. This brings Amsterdam a step closer to cashless public transport. 

On Saturday 26 March, you can pay using small change for the last time. Doing so will support the work of Toon de Muntenman, Amsterdam resident of the year.

With OV-chip mobile, you travel using your OV-chipkaart in your smartphone. You check in and out in the tram, bus or train as you usually do, but with your smartphone. Currently, this option is being extensively tested.
