It is busy in Amsterdam and it continues to be increasingly busier. More tourists, more commuters, more residents… and more passengers. The increased busyness requires better and quicker connections. The arrival of the Noord/Zuid route is not just an expansion of public transport in Amsterdam with a new and fast connection between the north and south. It is also an updated above ground public transport network.
We are proud and happy that the Noord/Zuid route will soon be in service. Of course, we are also a little nervous. When the Noord/Zuid routes goes into service on 22 July there are bound to be some growing pains. And most certainly in the first six months. This can vary from an absence of up-to-date travel information to a temporary loss of a metro or even an entire route. Of course, this will affect the connecting tram and bus routes. Naturally, we will do everything possible to remedy the start up problems as quickly as possible and, in the meantime, inform our passengers as best we can.
