We can no longer avoid it. Amstelveen is switching over to a new tram route.

Bus 55 replaces metro 51

As of Sunday 3 March, metro 51 route is in service on a new route. The metro no longer runs in the Buitenveldert and Amstelveen. Instead, metro 50 runs from Station Zuid to Sloterdijk and Isolatorweg.
Metro 51 will no longer go back to Buitenveldert and Amstelveen. It is expected to take about two years to ready the new, fast, and safe tram connection, the Amstelveen Line.
