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. 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.
The Noord/Zuid route will do a lot for Amsterdam: metro 52 provides a fast connection between the north and south, lots more air and space in the busy city center, and provides optimum interconnections with the trams and buses that cross from east to west.
It only takes 15 minutes to travel from the north to the south and vice versa.
With metro 52, it will only take you a quarter of an hour to travel from the new Station Noord to Station Zuid. While underway you will encounter six new metro stations: Noorderpark Station on the northern side of IJ river, Central Station, Rokin, Vijzelgracht, De Pijp, and Europaplein on the southern side. And it runs often. A metro runs every six minutes and later in the evenings alternating between seven and eight minutes.
