Public Transportation Safety Team

The Public Transportation Safety Team was set up to improve safety on public transportation in Amsterdam. Consisting of 150 police agents and guards from the City Management Department, this team focuses on public safety and order in and around public transportation.

Policing and enforcement

Safety staff in yellow jackets
The safety team wear the same conspicuous yellow jackets. This makes it easy to recognize them.

The team is based at a police station, but naturally they are mostly found in and around the public transport network. Their main tasks are policing and enforcement. If a person becomes a nuisance or safety is jeopardized in any way, they act directly. They act immediately to ensure that order and safety are restored quickly so that passengers can continue to use public transport safely.
