Amstelveen route renovation
At the beginning of 2019, the municipality will start renovating the Amstelveen route. The metro 51 route will be converted into a new tram route between Station Zuid and Amstelveen Westwijk.
During the construction, a lot of work will be carried out on the tram tracks, crossings, and stops. Some stops will be taken out of service and metro 51 will be replaced between Zuid and Westwijk with bus 55. In addition, tram 5 will also be taken out of service at some moments during the renovation work.
This page lists the changes for tram 51 and metro 51.
A detailed description of the project and all work can be found at the municipality website:Amstelveen.nl
Metro 51 reimbursement policy changed
There is a reimbursement policy if metro 51 is delayed. The standard of one hour has been reduced to a half hour specially for metro 51 passengers.
You can invoke this reimbursement policy if you have been delayed more than a half an hour at a metro 51 stop and there is no alternative public transport available. We will then reimburse your taxi fare within the GVB transport region.

As of Monday 7 January, the Kronenburg for tram 5 and metro 51 will be out of service.
